In 2010, the NC State Department of Intercollegiate Athletics embarked on a comprehensive and inclusive strategic planning process. The objective was to outline the goals and strategies specific to Intercollegiate Athletics (ICA) for the next five years, as well as guiding the department’s decision-making and prioritization during this period. The importance and value of the strategic planning process was emphasized by the concurrent economic and financial challenges of the nation, state, university, and ICA.
The resulting document produced by this process is Wolfpack Unlimited: A Strategic Plan for Advancing NC State’s Department of Athletics: 2012-2017. The goals and strategies identified in the Strategic Plan are assigned to the appropriate coaches and administrative units for implementation and completion. The department will conduct regular assessments of progress towards each goal and update the plan, as might be warranted by changes in our working environment. All ICA personnel are expected to work collaboratively, while basing their respective decision-making, prioritization and goal setting towards meeting the departmental goals identified in the plan.
