Strategic Plan 2025

In 2017-18, Sonoma State University engaged in a comprehensive process to share, shape and unite around a strategic plan, one that will set the direction for the university for years to come. Thanks to the participation of nearly 4,000 individuals including faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members, the work is now nearing completion.

See the proposed plan: Building Our Future @ SSU - Strategic Plan 2025.

The taskforce has referred the latest version of the plan to President Judy K. Sakaki. She has not signed the plan officially – she will do so in June 2018 so we can take our next steps. Please know that we continue to be open to substantive feedback through our input mechanism. We are committed to keeping that email open so we can ensure we do indeed have a living, breathing document throughout the life of the plan.

We want to thank everyone who contributed to making this process a success, resulting in a living document that will help Sonoma State achieve its vision of becoming a national model for higher education by 2025. But the hard work is really only beginning. The sharing and shaping phase is now over. It’s time to start building. Please mark your calendars for the official campus-wide launch of the Strategic Plan 2025 this fall when we will describe the next steps for “Building our Future @ SSU.” More information to come this summer.
