Maintain Momentum & Continuity of Strategic Initiatives

The University of South Dakota has established a strong foundation of successful programs and initiatives under the leadership of outgoing President James W. Abbott. The incoming president should build on the existing strategic plan that guides the campus through 2020, while collaborating with campus constituents and key stakeholders to begin identifying and developing new campus-wide priorities that inform the next strategic plan. The campus seeks a president who will maintain and build on its positive, upward momentum and ensure continued growth and innovation into the future.
