Message of Support from the President
The values instilled by our founders, Woodbridge and Helen Ferris, remain just as strong today as they were 134 years ago. As we developed our University’s 2019-2024 strategic plan, I was reminded just how fortunate we are to have an extraordinary faculty and staff who came together to move our University forward, and while doing so, making a great University even greater. Together we will create a bright future full of promise for our University.
David L. Eisler
This is your Strategic Plan
The strategic plan is for the entire Ferris State University community. We want our
students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends to influence the direction of
our future while helping us to remain true to our mission, core values, vision and
traditions. We want to create a plan that is relevant, do-able, and which challenges the University.
