Mission, Vision, and Core Values
Our Mission and Vision statements carry with them the responsibility, traditions, and forward-thinking exemplified by all who are associated with the institution. Supported by our Core Values, we continue to be the avenue of upward mobility and realization of human potential for so many in Central Arkansas and beyond.
Arkansas State University-Beebe will become a nationally benchmarked institution that empowers individuals, embraces communities, and transforms lives.
Our Strategic Plan is framed by four assumptions we recognize as being vital to our success as a comprehensive liberal arts and sciences, and workforce education institution of higher education.
The Strategic Plan assumes that the College operates as one college with multiple locations, programs and services. Common application of policy, practice and procedures will guide the College as the Strategic Plan is implemented. While each campus and location is unique and serves different populations, the priority must always be an institution-wide focus of "What is best for ASU-Beebe as a whole?" The College's emphasis will be to provide consistent, quality educational experience across all locations, programs, and services.
The Strategic Plan assumes that the College strives to increase operational efficiencies and continuously seeks out methods to reduce costs. This includes seeking new funding sources as well as exploring innovative technologies.
The Strategic Plan assumes that the College embraces data-informed decision making. The College will seek to answer the question of "How does this advance student success?" at every turn. The College will provide the necessary support to institutional research to ensure the data on which all decisions are based is sound.
The Strategic Goals we have identified serve as the guiding themes of the Strategic Plan.
Arkansas State University-Beebe is committed to providing students and employees the resources and support they require to be successful. From applicant through graduate, the College will seek to ensure students have the information and support services they need to make informed decisions about their educational endeavors. Likewise, the College will provide employees with the onboarding, mentoring, and professional development opportunities necessary to fulfill their responsibilities to the students they serve.
While recognizing and valuing the uniqueness and strengths of individual campuses, Arkansas State University-Beebe is committed to a one-college approach to serving students. As such, the College will leverage our collective strengths to focus on consistent application of policy, practice, and procedures across all locations, programs, and services to ensure overall student success.
Arkansas State University-Beebe is committed to having a positive impact on the quality of life outside the classroom; to ensuring students are prepared to enter and compete in an economy that is increasingly global and competitive; to embracing a culture of collegiality where employees are accountable for their behavior and job performance; to being an active participant in our communities by participating in community events, hosting events on campus that draw community members to us, and providing the training that our workforce and industry partners need.
The Strategic Priorities we have adopted will steer the action plans associated with each Strategic Goal.
