University School of Milwaukee’s previous strategic plan, which spanned five years from 2006 through 2010, made significant enhancements to USM in the areas of faculty, curriculum and programs, facilities, value propositions, and financial planning.
University School of Milwaukee Strategic Plan 2013-2020
The current strategic plan, introduced at the end of former Head of School Laura Fuller's first year at USM, addresses the importance of continuing to provide the excellent academic experience that USM is known for, while embedding a culture of leadership for its faculty and students and maintaining a financially sustainable structure that provides the school with the ability to “think big.” Our primary goal remains ensuring that our students receive the best possible education, in every sense of the word—not only in the state of Wisconsin, but also nationally.
This strategic plan more formally introduces the concepts of global education and engagement, professional leadership, and innovation, and focuses on the importance of providing our students with an experiential learning component that ensures the vital hands-on experiences necessary for a true and demonstrated understanding of concepts, skills, and ideas.
The USM Board of Trustees has begun conversations about the school's next strategic plan, with more expected to be shared after the end of Head of School Steve Hancock's first year, in the summer of 2021, after USM completes its head transition plan.
