Graduates must be prepared for the requirements of a world in which societies, economies and labor markets are increasingly globalized. The preparation must extend beyond academic knowledge to encompass social and intercultural skills. Examine the role of globalization and the development of global perspectives in undergraduate education, graduate education, research and creative activity and service to community and state in the context of the overarching goal of becoming an emerging research university with an unparalleled commitment to student success, closing gaps in achievement and delivering a robust campus experience. Through that examination, propose university-wide goals as well as the actions needed to achieve those goals. Attention should also be paid to promoting efficiency and effectiveness.  Include time frames for expected attainment of goals and actions, proposed assessment and targets for goals, and estimates of human, physical and financial resources required.
