This is an exciting time to be at UC Merced. Growing into a Research I university will allow us to better fund our research, offer opportunities to a diverse student body that rival the best research institutions, and increase our impact on the region, California, and the world.
The University of California, Merced’s first long-range comprehensive strategic plan culminates a year of thoughtful engagement by faculty, staff, students, and external partners.
The plan is a blueprint that will drive our success and momentum into the future as we build on this campus’ first 16 years of achievement. It is a vision of our future and an articulation of the measures by which we will judge our progress towards our goals. In 2024-25, nearly half-way through our plan, the campus plans to revisit the targets for each strategic plan measure.
