Finance Division Strategic Plan 2023 – 2027

Since October 2021, the Finance Division has been developing and socializing the Finance Division Strategic Plan 2023 – 2027. Since the last project update, the Finance Division has been working diligently obtaining the necessary approvals and making final adjustments to the strategic plan, as well as creating and launching a website that details the new plan.

We are excited to announce that the Finance Division Strategic Plan 2023 – 2027 is live! The new plan includes a refreshed division mission, vision and values, as well as high-level goals for the next five years, which focus on four key areas:

  • Employee recruitment, development and engagement
  • Financial sustainability and reporting
  • Policies, processes and compliance
  • Systems and technology

This five-year plan serves as a blueprint that will shape the university’s finance function to elevate financial talent, drive procedural and technical efficiencies and result in predictive and prescriptive insights that support optimal business performance.

We hope you take some time to explore the new Finance Division Strategic Plan 2023 – 2027 website, which in addition to outlining the strategic plan and progress toward our strategic goals and initiatives, also includes some exciting features that showcase our division staff, guiding principles, and a video message from me.

Thank you to the stakeholders from across the university and Finance Division staff members who provided vital feedback and insight, which was critical to the development process of the new strategic plan and website.

If you have any questions or comments related to this effort, please reach out to Angela Blanton, executive sponsor and vice president for Finance and chief financial officer, Monique Polas, project lead and assistant treasurer or any members any members of the Finance Division leadership team who served as the steering committee and goal ambassadors for this effort.

Thank you for your feedback and collaboration in making the Finance Division Strategic Plan 2023 – 2027 a success!
