President Dr. Thomas KriseMessage from the President

Welcome to the Para Hulo' Strategic Plan Website! The University developed the strategic plan from February to August 2019 to guide our decisions and pursuits throughout the next five years and beyond.  

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. 

I have also prepared a whitepaper that presents a recent history of the University and how Para Hulo' prepares our insititution for the future. You can download and read the publication here. 

I want to thank the Para Hulo' Strategic Planning Committee and all of our faculty, staff, administrators, and students for their collaboration and dedication to this institution throughout the planning process. 

We are excited for the continued great work of our University and accomplishing our goals in this strategic plan.  

Si Yu'os ma'åse', and Biba UOG!

Thomas W. Krise, Ph.D.
