Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning

At his presidential inauguration on March 22, 2018, Dr. Thomas M. Evans announced his vision for the University of the Incarnate Word. It is a vision for an even brighter future, guided by the legacy of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word and staying true to UIW’s core values and Mission. 

To begin the work, Dr. Evans has penned a Vision Statement for the University that encompasses what sets UIW apart, how it can best serve its students, faculty and staff, and the impact that community can make on the world.

Taking into consideration insights from members of the UIW community across colleges, schools and fields of study, Dr. Evans also established Strategic Priorities. Through conversations, study and a survey, he honed those priorities to the most essential eight. At the heart of each is the desire to become an even stronger premier provider of education, create critical pathways to opportunity, unite UIW programs and communities, and become One Word. In doing so, UIW will better prepare students to address the challenges of the future and live a life of greater purpose.
