2021 - 2031 Strategic Plan

Although we cannot predict the future, we can identify the values and principles that unite us, and we can create shared goals and targets that will help us align our work to achieve new degrees of excellence.

In August 2020, Chancellor Juan Sánchez Muñoz asked Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Gregg Camfield to lead the university’s first comprehensive strategic planning process to imagine what UC Merced will look like in 2030, as we near 15,000 students and fulfill the promise of this campus to bring prosperity to the Central Valley.

The strategic goals and objectives represent our promise to realize our long-term aims as an institution, including achieving R1 status, while caring for our dedicated faculty and staff and serving our remarkable students so that they can create a better and more prosperous future for themselves, their families, their communities and the world. Our past has been remarkable, and we know our future is brighter still.
