Strategic Planning


A message from Chancellor Michael F. Collins

February 3, 2020

Beginning in the summer of 2018, hundreds of members of the UMMS community began their work on one of the most important—and formidable—tasks that an institution like ours can undertake: creating a roadmap for future growth, development, investment and change. Over the past 18 months, faculty, staff and students have contributed to discussions about our future direction, our priorities and our aspirations, which we have turned into a coherent and concrete plan to guide our actions over the next five years on behalf of the diverse communities we serve.

We have now made final our plan, IMPACT 2025, and I invite you read or download it below.

While the plan document is complete, the work, of course, is just beginning. We pledge to update you regularly on our progress and continue to encourage members of our campus community to actively participate in this work. The success of this endeavor depends greatly on the willingness of the UMMS academic community to embrace change and contribute to the future direction of our great public medical school.
