University Planning Committee - UPC

In February 2018, President Bodnar charged the University Planning Committee with the following charge:
  • Examine our current mission and propose changes to ensure a concise, clear, and compelling University of Montana Mission Statement
  • Draft a clear, intentional, and integrated strategic plan for immediate action; the plan should include areas of focus and areas we will choose not to sustain, both programmatically and structurally given our fiscal constraints
  • Propose an improved planning and assessment mechanism for continued strategic thinking and improvement

The University Planning Committee delivered the first two parts of its charge in spring 2018. We invite you to explore this website in order to learn more about the UPC Process.

In August 2018, President Bodnar delegated the role of Chair of the University Planning Committee to UM Executive Vice President and Provost Jon Harbor. Provost Harbor has integrated the work of the Mission and Identity and Data Analysis subgroups in his Organizational and staffing changes Initiative.

Provost Harbor will reconvene the University Planning Committee later this academic year to complete the third part of President Bodnar's charge.
