Our Vision:

An effective vision statement is vital to a strategic planning process. A vision statement describes what an institution aspires to become in the future and the values it enshrines. It captures in detail what things could be like at the institution level if it were functioning effectively and focuses on the contribution the institution will make to society. In the long run, a successful strategic plan must be premised on institution values, such as:

  • Academic freedom;
  • Institutional autonomy;
  • High quality;
  • Equal access; and
  • Non-discrimination (by race, ethnic affiliation, religion and gender)

Our Mission:

A mission statement is fundamental to strategic planning. It is an assertion of an institution raison d’être, or purpose, and should clearly define its ideals as well as the services it offers to various stakeholders. It informs an institution’s financial planning, budgeting, staffing and academic programming. One aspect of a mission statement relates to students, in terms of both institutional commitments and expectations.

The mission statement should be a general statement of values, aims and goals of the state. An effective mission statement will be clear, precise and transparent about commitments, long-term goals and values. It usually includes a commitment to high standards and levels of performance, discussion of the context of the institution environment, recognition of institution obligations to the community, the nation and the world, and commitment to its students. A mission statement ordinarily consists of two parts:

  • A high-level preamble that encapsulates the gist of the institution mission; and
  • A narrative portion that lists the particularities and elaborates on the implications of the mission statement in practical terms.
