Strategic Plan 2019-2021

The next two years (2019-2021) will be a time of transition for Luther College. Dr. Bryan Hillis’s tenure as President will come to an end on June 30, 2020, and a new President will assume the office on July 1, 2020. A short-term (two-year) interim plan was developed to allow for the continuation of initiatives developed in the 2014-2019 LCUR strategic Plan as well as the development of new initiatives upon which the new President could build. The initiatives are, for the most part, relatively small, manageable goals that can be completed within the two-year timeframe, although their adoption will set the stage for the long-term plan that will follow.

There are four high-level strategic directions for the 2019-2021 LCUR Strategic Plan:

Academics: LCUR provides an innovative and student-oriented curriculum and pedagogy supported by an appropriate faculty complement engaged in teaching, research, and service.
Strategic Initiatives: Hire more faculty positions; develop and pilot an Alumni Mentorship program within our Bundles program; continue to enhance profile and effectiveness of NVSSN; enhance Writing Across the Disciplines program; increase profile of Certificate in Sustainability on campus.

Students: LCUR provides an environment in which students realize their vocation as engaged citizens serving in our contemporary world.
Strategic Initiatives: Ensure LCUR can respond appropriately to the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission through programming such as the Canadian Roots Exchange, Project of the Heart, and the web-based “4 Seasons of Reconciliation”; assist students in realizing their vocation through the development of a Pre-Professional Students Society and through programming for women and minorities in STEM; address concerns regarding the mental health of our students.

People Focused: LCUR provides a collegial, respectful, and diverse work environment in which human potentials can be reached.
Strategic Initiatives: Address Human Resource concerns identified in a recent college-wide survey.

Financial Sustainability and risk management: LCUR is committed to fiscal responsibility, accountability, and stewardship of its financial and physical resources.
Strategic Initiatives: Ensure an adequate revenue stream by reducing vacancy in the residence, maintaining academic enrollment between 650- 700 students, and increasing cafeteria and conference business; increase alumni relations effectiveness through LCUR’s 50th Anniversary in 2021; ensure good stewardship of our physical plant with renovations such as refurbishing our chapel, replacing windows, and exploring opportunities in the College’s infrastructure that will advance the UN Sustainable Development Goal #12.
