The Northwestern University Division of Student Affairs Strategic Plan for 2021-2026 was developed through an inclusive six-month process that incorporated input from:

That process included virtual strategic planning retreat sessions lead by NASPA Advisory Services during which members of the Division reviewed data collected earlier in the process and met in small and large groups to draft vision and mission statements, develop lists of values and behaviors, and define high-priority strategic areas and themes for the planning period. The Student Affairs Plan will nest within and support the Northwestern University Strategic Plan; it will provide strong direction for the Division in advancing student learning, building community, and strengthening the student experience.
