Unanimously approved by the Arkansas State University System Board of Trustees, this plan will guide the institution to new heights.

Vision: ASU-Beebe will become a nationally benchmarked institution that empowers individuals, embraces communities, and transforms lives.
Core Values: student success, integrity, diversity, quality, and community.

Foundational Assumptions

Emphasize One-College Approach

The Strategic Plan assumes that the College operates as one college with multiple locations, programs and services. The 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 on "What is best for ASU-Beebe as a whole?" The College will emphasize providing a consistent, quality educational experience across all locations, programs, and services.

Continuously Evaluate for Efficiency

The Strategic Plan assumes that the College strives to increase operational efficiencies and continuously seeks methods to reduce costs. This includes seeking new funding sources as well as exploring innovative technologies. 

Embrace Data-Informed Decision Making

The Strategic Plan assumes that the College embraces data-informed decision-making.  The College will seek to answer "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.

Timely and Effective Communication

The Strategic Plan assumes that the College will communicate the information necessary to cultivate active support around the goals and strategies in the plan.  These communications will involve all employees and be open and transparent.
