Strategic Priorities

Home > About us > UMP Vision 2030 > Strategic Priorities

Since its inception in 2013, UMP has grown in leaps and bounds surpassing the expected norms. Guided by the preceding Strategic Plan, UMP Vision 2022, the university pursued its vision and mission achieving 96,4% of the implementation measures outlined in the plan. This has laid a solid foundation from which the ambitions of the new Strategic Plan can be realised. This context and the continuing rapid growth of the university informed the stance of the new strategic plan. This plan consolidates the gains of UMP Vision 2022, while introducing new goals that are complementary and critical to building a sustainable and resilient institution. Thus, the new Strategic Plan is designated as UMP Vision 2030. In as much as UMP Vision 2030 seeks to build on UMP Vision 2022, it acutely addresses the aspiration to be a high performing university, implementing strategies that achieve UMP’s vision and mission, guided by their values, and cognizant of the opportunities and constraints of the external environment.
