2024-2029 Strategic Plan

FGCU's Strategic Plan Initiative 

In April 2022, the President’s Cabinet and FGCU’s Board of Trustees implemented the FGCU Strategic Roadmap Initiative, a framework to facilitate the university’s next strategic plan. The initiative focused on extensive internal and external input to serve as an indicator of FGCU’s current state, as well as factors that will impact the university’s future. The results of this first phase were published in June 2023.

In July 2023, FGCU initiated the second phase to finalize the next strategic plan’s mission, vision, goals and objectives. Led by a Strategic Planning Steering Committee – and informed by the Strategic Roadmap Initiative, stakeholder feedback sessions and community surveys – the work will result in the 2024-2029 Strategic Plan to be submitted to the Board of Trustees in December 2023 for approval.

President Aysegul Timur received unanimous approval for the plan by the Board of Governors of the State University System of Florida in January 2024.

Learn About FGCU’s Strategic Plan Initiative

With the assistance of CampusWorks, a higher education advisory firm, the Strategic Plan Steering Committee is guiding the creation of FGCU's next strategic plan. We are soliciting ideas and recommendations from our students, faculty, staff and community to understand our strategic priorities for the coming years. The strategic plan document will be presented to the Board of Trustees in December 2023 and the Board of Governors in January 2024.

Strategic Plan Steering Committee

The purpose of the Strategic plan Steering Committee is to facilitate the development of FGCU's next strategic plan, which is set to begin January 2024. The final document will establish university-wide priorities that will guide the decision-making process and the allocation of resources over the next five years.
