Winthrop Strategic Priorities:
1. Promote access and degree attainment for an increasing number of diverse traditional, post-traditional, and graduate students.

Continually enhance the quality of the Winthrop University Experience, using high impact practices to ensure that all Winthrop students are prepared for career success, engaged in our democratic society, involved in local and global concerns, and grounded in values that give meaning to their lives.
3. Create and maintain a work place culture consistent with our core values and characterized by collaborative decision making, transparency, civility, fair salaries and wages, and investment in the professional development of our faculty and staff.
4. Elevate Winthrop’s institutional reputation regionally and nationally in ways that highlight the value of a Winthrop University education and support enrollment management, fundraising, and public funding.
5. Cultivate a “culture of philanthropy” that will enable our rising aspirations.
6. Forge new and solidify existing governmental, educational, organizational, and business partnerships that create mutual benefit.
From these strategic priorities we are now in the process of identifying goals and their associated initiatives. Upon acceptance by the Board, the goals, initiatives, and resulting work plan will be promulgated to the campus.
