Seven Themes

June 30, 2017

Montana State Athletics has moved into the next phase of its strategic plan, unveiling Our Heritage - Our Future, a roadmap which will guide the Bobcats to identify and prioritize the requirements to achieve its vision and mission, MSU Director of Athletics Leon Costello announced Thursday morning.

Behind its vision statement, new mission statement and set of core values, Montana State Athletics has identified seven themes which will set the course for the department over the next five years. During the planning process, MSU consulted with CarrSports and received input from several stakeholder groups including University leadership, coaches, staff, student-athletes and fans.

The seven strategic themes include student-athlete well-being and performance; competitive excellence; championship quality facilities; learning and leading; financial responsibility and sustainability; inclusion, diversity and respect; and engagement. Each of the seven themes contains several goals to chart progress and accountability and can be found at  

"It's an exciting time to be a Bobcat and the new strategic plan provides the vision for the future of MSU Athletics," Costello said. "We have big dreams and goals and this plan is the roadmap to accomplish each. I want to thank CarrSports for their dedicated service to the project. I also need to thank our staff, student-athletes, fans and campus leadership for their participation in the process."
