ASHEVILLE, NC (November 30, 2018) – Collegiate Consulting recently assisted with the completion of a comprehensive strategic plan for the University of North Carolina Asheville.

The strategic plan entitled "Believe. Achieve. Thrive." is the road map for UNC Asheville athletics over the course of the next five years. The strategic plan outlines key areas of focus and growth in developing lifetime leaders from the most valuable resource that UNC Asheville athletics has in its student-athletes.

Collegiate Consulting, through a series of on-campus interviews, benchmarking and external research, worked with UNC Asheville athletics senior staff to identify key themes, goals and strategies across every area of the department.  The primary themes of the plan include: Athletic Competitiveness, Student-Athlete Success, Community Engagement, and Organizational Capacity.

UNC Asheville athletics and Collegiate Consulting constructed "Believe. Achieve. Thrive." to deliver sustained success in developing high-impact lifetime leaders.

"Believe. Achieve. Thrive." is the framework for operational excellence that provides the greater Bulldog community a road map on how to engage with and participate in a thriving NCAA Division I Program.

The strategic plan also continues to allow UNC Asheville athletics to align with its vision of being recognized nationally for developing "Champions in Athletics & Leaders in Life" by winning in the classroom, community and competition.
