UHSP Strategic Plan 2021-2023

Since we embarked on our strategic plan, STLCOP 20/20, in 2011, our institution has grown and evolved in countless ways. We have added academic programs at the bachelor’s and master’s levels, transformed our physical campus, grown our research capacity, and established collaborations with local and regional partners to increase student opportunities.Cover of the UHSP 2021-23 strategic plan
