New Tech Mission, Vision Statements In The Works

SOCORRO, N.M. January 31, 2014– The newly formed Strategic Planning Committee is taking initial steps toward developing a new three- to five-year plan for New Mexico Tech.

The 27-member committee is focusing its attention on developing Tech’s mission statement and vision statement, in preparation for establishing the university’s goals. Committee members include staff members, faculty members, research staff, administrators, students, alumni and community members.

The committee will post public documents about meetings, discussions and decisions at its website, http://www.nmt.edu/spc-home. Regular announcements, updates and emails will be distributed periodically to the campus community.

Committee chair Dr. Lorie Liebrock said, “As we collectively look toward the future of New Mexico Tech, this Strategic Plan will help focus the overall efforts of faculty, staff and administration toward a set of common goals. Even though we are early in the process, it’s been energizing and inspiring to share ideas with others on campus.”

The group meets every other week and will continue to meet throughout the year. The goal is to have a new Strategic Plan document finalized by January 1, 2015.
