CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina University has launched a new strategic plan to expand the learning experience and diversity on its campus.

The plan focuses on six key strategies that will be implemented starting the in the fall 2016 semester and span over the next five years to end in 2021.

Those six key strategies include: academic excellence and instructional quality; student excellence; an engaged staff and faculty; accessibility, inclusion, diversity; the CCU story; and financial stability and infrastructure

One of the questions posed about this five-year strategic plan is if it calls for a rise in tuition fees. 

CCU officials said that is currently not being considered, but the plan does put an emphasis on diversity and inclusion, and making sure each student has an engaging learning experience.

Darla Domke-Damonte, chair of CCU's strategic planning committee, said the university's strategic plan focuses on creating a learning environment with high impact engagement. 

"Every student here will have experimental learning as a result of this plan," Domke-Damonte said. 

She added feedback was taken from staff, students and members off campus to help the school develop the six key strategies.

Under each of those strategies there are 74 objectives that involve a clear timeline. 

"At the end of that five-year cycle, we'll be on track that by 2023 to get to 12,500 students," Domke-Damonte said. 

According to Domke-Damonte, the goal is to provide an educational environment that engages students, fosters inclusion and diversity, and ensures students, faculty and staff have the appropriate resources to achieve excellence.
