WSU Tri-Cities Strategic Plan

Goal Six

Institutional Effectiveness

Prioritize the strategic and efficient stewardship of resources.


1. Establish and maintain sustainable operations and mechanisms for generating critical resources for growth.

2. Create processes that are transparent, consistent, and inclusive of the campus community and the WSU system.

3. Refine and establish inclusive processes and procedures to promote a culture of accountability, efficiency and growth.

Our preferred future…

Resources are managed through a comprehensive annual process that engages the entire campus community. Campus core operations are fully supported by the revenue they generate. New initiatives, selected through the annual planning process, are tied directly to strategic initiatives. Funding is clearly identified and tied to the performance of these programs and reevaluated annually. Each unit tracks key performance indicators that contribute to our culture of planning, accountability and data-informed decision making.
