Welcome Letter

Weber State University President Brad Mortensen

Dear Colleagues, Trustees, and members of the greater Weber State Community,

I am pleased to present the Weber State University’s Strategic Plan for the next five years.

This document provides a blueprint for what we will prioritize as an institution in the coming years, building on the strong foundation that we have established over the past 132 years.

This plan represents the contributions and dedication of so many members of our Wildcat Family, who attended in-person focus groups and town hall meetings conducted over Zoom, offered feedback to early drafts, served on subcommittees and task forces, and wouldn’t let a global pandemic deter them.

While this document plots a bold course for our future, you will see that it also draws on many of the fundamental elements of the Weber State experience, including our longstanding core themes of access, learning and community.

In addition to updating our mission, vision and values, the plan addresses our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, establishes metrics for enrollment growth, and outlines five areas of emphasis with stated goals, desired outcomes and supporting strategies.

I encourage all of you to review the information in our strategic plan, envision the institution we are striving to become, and reflect on your role in helping us achieve these goals and unleashing our collective creative potential.

This is a living document. One that I anticipate all of us will revisit frequently in the coming years to prioritize projects and resources, assess and report out on the progress we are making, and unify all of our efforts across our campuses to make Weber State even more great, Great, GREAT!
