Learning, equity, affinity, discovery, and service — they are the five pillars under which UND organized and developed its newly-released strategic plan.
In the introductory letter, UND President Armacost writes, “UND LEADS does not have an end point. Its five pillars – Learning, Equity, Affinity, Discovery, and Service – will be UND’s foundation for years to come; the strategies and priorities for each pillar may change, but our commitment to these underlying principles will not. This plan focuses on the ultimate outcome of an exemplary public research University fulfilled by UND’s collective vision to inspire a sense of wonder, a love of discovery and a commitment to serve.”
