|The five-year strategic plan is the roadmap to enhance student success, meet state performance metrics to fund higher education, and fulfill FAMU’s institutional mission as an 1890 land-grant institution dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, resolution of complex issues and the empowerment of citizens and communities.|
|For the fifth consecutive year, U.S. News and World Reports has named the state of Florida as #1 for higher education. The same publication named Florida A&M as the #1 HBCU in the country. FAMU is rising, and we aspire to even greater heights.|
There are several challenges in higher education – increasing competition for the best and brightest students, college readiness among high school graduates, reductions in state appropriated funding, stiff competition for research funds, a growing desire for “free college” and student loan forgiveness, rising costs of IT and security, changing requirements in need-based financial aid and Parent Plus loan availability, and balancing historical missions with outcomes-based funding, to name a few.
The strategic planning process will engage in a comprehensive process to explore historical trends, gather data and insights, and take an inside-out approach to developing the 2022-27 strategic plan.
