The University of St. Thomas, as part of the flexible pathways priority in its strategic plan, will explore whether to open a two-year Catholic college as a way to increase access and affordability and ultimately lead to four-year degrees for Minneapolis and St. Paul-area high school students.
The Strategic Planning Oversight Committee has assembled eight task forces that will facilitate the implementation of the university’s various strategic initiatives.
St. Thomas has completed the first phase of a project to develop a comprehensive brand strategy for the university and has retained an Atlanta firm that specializes in higher education to work on the next phase.
Task forces representing the eight strategic priorities are being formed.
The University of St. Thomas has a new strategic plan, “St. Thomas 2020: Living Our Mission, Expanding Our Horizon.” The Board of Trustees unanimously has approved the plan.

The first is scheduled for Monday, March 10, and will focus on the goals of Catholic Mission, Diversity and Inclusive Culture, and Globalization. Faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to attend.
