Advancing the Flagship Review Committee Announced

  • September 15th, 2021

Since unveiling its strategic plan, Advancing the Flagship, in 2016, The University of Alabama has made substantial progress on its goals and objectives.

Over the past five years, these goals have been monitored and their advancements have been captured on the UA website. Continuing and expanding upon this progress, President Stuart R. Bell has announced a review of the University’s strategic plan. The review will assess accomplishments and opportunities for continued growth and ensure the plan remains aligned with best practices and UA’s mission.

A committee of faculty, staff and students has been established to execute the review. The committee will meet throughout the 2021-2022 academic year to discuss ways to enhance the current plan and will present its findings in May 2022.
