Strategic Plan, 2018-2021

WPU Librarians lead various university-wide initiatives, including the new Faculty Lecture Series to elevate the faculty and student experience. Our strategic plan is based on user needs. These needs were articulated in campus survey results and consultations with campus partners like the Department of Student Leadership and Multicultural Programs, the Academic Success Center and the First Year Learning Communities (FYLC).
