It is going to be It's Time

Redefining St. Cloud State University


The world is changing and so is St. Cloud State University. We are taking a new approach to higher education as we boldly redefine what it means to be a state university. It's Time is our strategic framework for the future, outlining key areas for investment and innovation as we deliver market-relevant programs, certifications, and degrees from nationally recognized programs.

It's Time is focused on fields that are important to our state, its citizens and its businesses. We are excelling in the fields of engineering and applied science, holistic health and wellness, education, and leadership. Additionally, we deliver an education with a strong liberal arts foundation, as students pursue their intellectual interests, broaden their perspectives, and strengthen the skills that are highly sought after by employers.

Students are at the heart of the St. Cloud State experience, and with our focus on individualized student success, we are investing in advisors who guide students to stay on pace for graduation, and most importantly, realize their dreams. Students work closely with professors on academic research and gain experiences through an extensive network of industry partners and more than 125,000 alumni. Our graduates are ready for life as global citizens and as professionals with fulfilling and impactful careers.

From SCSU President Robbyn Wacker’s perspective, "It's Time recognizes and builds upon St. Cloud State’s institutional strengths, forward-thinking research, and academic excellence as we identify new and innovative ways to serve our students and state." SCSU is bold, innovative, and focused as it leads the way providing a life-changing educational experience for it’s students.
