UW-Madison’s Lifelong Learning 2020 Initiative
With the support of the Chancellor and Provost, and in alignment with the University’s strategic plan, Lifelong Learning 2020 is UW-Madison’s first-ever strategic plan supporting lifelong learners.
Student demographics are shifting, and along with those shifts come changing student needs and expectations. Enrollment gains are predicted to come from professional master’s students, adult degree completers, community college transfers, and international undergraduates. Serving these students will require changes and investment in new and different models of student services, retooled policies, innovative technologies, and mutually beneficial partnerships. Lifelong Learning 2020 is our response.
Our goals are simple yet ambitious:
- Create transformative and meaningful learning experiences
- Serve more lifelong learners
- Generate more revenue for UW-Madison
