Forward Superior

A Strategic Plan for UW-Superior

Campus Shot

The 2021-2024 Forward Superior Strategic Plan is the culmination of a two-year, highly inclusive and transparent process. Forward Superior builds on its predecessor, Superior Visions 2020, and directly addresses many of the challenges facing higher education today by committing to further elevating a culture of care, engaged student learning and inclusion. These three pillars will enable us to leverage and advance on present strengths to secure our future. 

Forward Superior is a living document, allowing UW-Superior to be responsive to rapidly changing dynamics. It should be recognized that Forward Superior will operate while embedded in two values that endure without explicitly being named in the plan itself – both are at the heart of the Wisconsin Idea under which we were formed.

  • Our commitment to our community and to the formation and sustainment of strategic partnerships
  • Our commitment to applied research and grants

In conclusion, Forward Superior is about our future, one which brings the world-class talent and commitment of its staff and faculty to engage our students in a transformative learning experience resulting in student success.
