Charting the Future of Our University

About the Charting the Future Process

In August 2003, President Kay Norton initiated a comprehensive planning process to guide the University of Northern Colorado.

The impetus came from the previous year’s budget process, in which UNC saw a decrease of 25 percent in its state appropriation due to a poor state economy. In “Charting the Future,” the planning process, the UNC campus community will spend the 2003-04 academic year examining its mix of programs and services.

The goal is to create a map that will allow UNC to live up to its promise as a great university. The process will be directed by a set of guiding principles that the university community holds dear. President Norton has asked the university to · discover opportunities, · foster imagination and · invest for greatness on its way to Charting the Future.
