In the last year, the Board of Trustees of Augustana University has conducted extensive research and analysis to identify how best to reach the goals and objectives outlined in the university's strategic plan. The board has unanimously approved a new strategic plan – Viking Bold: The Journey to 2030.

According to a release by Augustana University, the strategic plan lays the foundation for Augustana to enhance its standing as a top-ranked regional university and elevate its national profile amidst an extraordinary change in higher education.

The transition to NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletics will open a higher level of competition and recruiting.

Augustana President Stephanie Herseth Sandlin says, “As a liberal arts university that bears witness to the transformational power of education, Augustana, over the next decade, will develop and deliver new and bold academic offerings to more students, amplify excellence through the arts and athletics, enhance intercultural awareness and understanding, and adapt the physical campus and IT infrastructure to inspire and support future generations of Augustana students and the broader community.”
