Planning for the Future

The process for creating the strategic plan began with collecting feedback from all stakeholders (students, parents, alumni, faculty/staff, and Board of Trustees) in the form of focus groups and surveys to help determine our areas of focus. We have committed to hosting annual focus group opportunities to ensure we continue to understand the needs of our current families, especially during a time of such rapid societal change. Grandview's strategic planning for 2021-2026 is distinguished by 3 primary areas of focus; 1) Institutional Advancement, 2) Mission-Driven Instruction and Professional Development, and 3) Physical Plant and Capital Improvements.
