About OSPA

The Office of Strategy, Planning, and Analysis (OSPA) was formed to bring clarity and focus to planning at WSU. We envision a future where:

The system strategic plan will be alive and relevant for the entire WSU community

WSU will operate as a data-informed institution, and OSPA will be at the center.

WSU will benefit from a deep and robust culture of planning and informed decision making led by OSPA

WSU will be empowered with access to tools, guidance, and information for strategic planning, decision-making, and innovation.

OSPA will serve as a conduit, breaking down siloed thinking and acting.
