Para Hulo' | UOG Strategic Plan 2019-2024
In January 2019, the 11th president of the University of Guam, Thomas W. Krise, launched a new strategic planning process designed to build on the University's strengths and capacities developed over the last 20 years.
The five-year plan, dubbed "Para Hulo'" -- CHamoru for the University's Latin motto "excelsior," or "ever upward" -- will prepare the University for its next WASC Senior College & University Commission accreditation site visit in 2024 and continue the University's desired trajectory toward greatness.
The University’s Latin motto is “Excelsior,” or “Ever Upward.” Over the last few years, UOG has been working to become a great university, and it is primed to continue moving in that ever-upward trajectory. To represent this, we have titled our strategic plan "Para Hulo' "— which is the CHamoru translation for "Ever Upward."
This website provides information about the strategic planning process, each of the strategic initiatives and corresponding goals and objectives, and major updates in each initiative.
The plan will continue under UOG's 12th President, Dr. Anita Borja Enriquez through
