Ragin’ Cajuns Reflect on 2020 Progress Made in Strategic Plan

Department of Athletics takes tremendous steps forward on key objectives


LAFAYETTE – Beginning with the 2019-20 athletic year, the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Department of Athletics has monitored its many advancements and successes in coordination with its strategic plan, which was unveiled by Director of Athletics Bryan Maggard in October 2019.

Of the nine specific goals and 27 measurable objectives within the "Let’s Geaux" strategic plan, Maggard and the Ragin’ Cajuns are proud to announce that 15 objectives have been met already as the department turns the page into the 2021 calendar year.

"We can all certainly agree that 2020 has been a tremendously unique and challenging year, not just for our department, but for everyone in our community and across the country," said Maggard. "With that said, I am extremely proud of our coaches, student-athletes and staff for staying committed to academic and competitive excellence, while maintaining a focus on the health and safety of themselves and others."

The plan’s three main priorities of student-athlete experience, fiscal and facility management and cULture have all received considerable time and effort. The department is monitoring ongoing progress in the completion of five more specific goals, with just an additional seven final goals yet to be met.

"Our strategic plan has given our department the ability to track and measure our progress on reaching the many goals we set for ourselves back in the fall of 2019," said Maggard. "One emphasis we have as a department is to provide updates to our fans and the general public as both a means of transparency and way to help Cajun Nation stay connected with our achievements. We look forward to continuing our positive momentum into the 2021 calendar year and our winter and spring sports seasons."
