Michigan Tech Strategic Plan

Education for the 21st Century

MTU will expand its national presence with a focus on diversity and student success.

Changes in student expectations, the workplace, and the market are creating a highly competitive environment for higher education. In this new era, students are looking for engagement and value, employers are seeking agility and lifelong learners, and competition for efficient delivery of new content and skills is driving unresponsive universities and colleges out of business. Year one projects included the creation of the Innovation, Design, Engagement and Arts Hub, the design of a flexible self-discovering first year experience, the creation of a Tech Forward Pathways Program and the development of a Next Generation General Education Model.
