Planning & Institutional Effectiveness

Bowie State University’s strategic plan serves as a road map to advance the University’s mission of providing an excellent education for all students. Through its undergraduate and graduate programs, the University is focused primarily on enhancing the quality and value of its offerings to students, alumni, and the community. In addition, the University’s Core Values of excellence, civility, integrity, diversity, and accountability provide the foundation for decision making and for building a better University.
