Plan and Process

University-Wide Strategic Plan and Process


California State University, San Bernardino is launching their second strategic planning process that will involve all levels of the university in an effort to define the university's priorities for the next 5 years. In 2014/2015, the university embarked on its first comprehensive 5-year strategic planning process with five-measurable goals, objectives, and strategies. CSUSB’s vision, mission, and core values were developed by the campus community. The plan was extended for two-years while under a successful re-accreditation and a global pandemic. The university's 2022/2023 planning process, as designed, represents the opportunity to build on previously accomplished goals and continue to reach for new ones. 

In May 2022 at the President's Leadership Retreat, four goals were determined; 1. Student Success; 2. Faculty and Staff Success; 3. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; 4. Internationalization. The Strategic Planning Committee, with support from nationally-recognized experts, has developed and is leading the university-wide process, which will create the 2023-2028 strategic plan. The Strategic Planning Task Force charge is to create the 2023-2028 CSUSB Strategic Plan, utilizing workgroups to develop goal statements, objectives, strategies, and measurables around each of the four pillars: 1. Student Success,; 2. Faculty and Staff Success; 3. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; and 4. Internationalization. The process must include opportunities to solicit input, through a variety of means, from the entire campus community, ensuring that this initiative is organic and transparent. Learn more about those involved by visiting the Teams section.

California State University, San Bernardino’s strategic planning process will include:

  • A diverse group of committee members, representing members of our campus community: students, faculty (including lecturers and Senate members), staff, and administrators.
  • Review of the previous strategic plan and vision/mission/values.
  • Regular campus-wide communications, to include information and updates and opportunities for feedback.
  • Campus community open forums and feedback surveys from all representative groups on campus: students, faculty, staff, and administrators.
  • Development of goal statements, objectives, strategies, and measurable outcomes developed by workgroups will be finalized and a five year implementation plan will be created.

Statement of Community

As California State University, San Bernardino is developing new objectives, the full participation of students, faculty, staff, and administrators is critical. Every university division, college and auxiliary must be involved in the process that will map out the university’s strategic priorities.

Through this process, we commit to open and transparent communications and promise to promote compassion, care, equity, and civility. We recognize that when conflict emerges, it can be used to promote understanding and move us to a better place. It is important to understand and appreciate who we are individually, and what we each contribute to our departments, the university and extended community. Our differences and similarities enrich our critical thoughts and conversations and will serve us well as we embark on shaping the future of CSUSB.
