The organization’s allocation of resources and processes for evaluation and planning demonstrate its capacity to fulfill its mission, improve the quality of its education, and respond to future challenges and opportunities.

St. Cloud State University allocates resources in support of the university mission. Since our last reaccreditation in 1997, we have strengthened our planning process by developing goals in support of the mission, and our evaluation processes are now designed to inform campus units and the university of the extent to which we achieve our goals. Information from external sources, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) Chancellor’s Office, and local sources is used regularly to assist university personnel as they engage in their activities and prepare for the future.
