Western Michigan University's Five-Year Comprehensive Master Plan report is developed each year, for the five-year period starting two years after the plan is developed. For example, the plan submitted in 2014 is for the fiscal years 2016-20.
The purpose of the plan is to "set the direction for development and growth at Western Michigan University," in order to support WMU's vision to be "learner-centered, discovery driven, and globally engaged." The plan entails many aspects of Western Michigan University, including instructional programming, facility assessment and initiatives to be taken in the future.
