2014-2019 strategic plan:

The Strategic Plan of the Midwest Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators is intended to help guide the Association as it makes decisions about resource allocations, training, advocacy, and community support activities. This Plan is built on the guiding principles laid out in the Articles of Incorporation and summarized in the Mission Statement. The Strategic Plan uses these concepts to articulate a set of goals for the Association over the next few years. It is recommended that this plan be reviewed annually and amended as needed to reflect emerging circumstances. 

MASFAA GUIDING PRINCIPLES

MASFAA’s guiding principles come through four statements of purpose included in the Articles of Incorporation and are excerpted below. While our goals may change from time to time, these principles should remain as originally written.

  1. To foster and promote standards of professional preparation for the financial aid profession, and the appointment, effectiveness, recognition, and association of student financial aid administrators and counselors in post-secondary institutions and other public and private agencies and organizations concerned with or engaged in the support and/or administration of student financial aids.
  1. To serve the needs and interests of students, faculties, and administrations of postsecondary institutions and of individuals and public and private agencies and organizations concerned with or engaged in the support and/or administration of student financial aids by promoting and facilitating the coordination of student financial aid plans and programs and by advising and assisting them in the promotion and development of effective programs of student financial aids.  
  1. To promote and facilitate communications between secondary and post-secondary institutions and those organizations involved in the disbursement of student aid funds.

  1. To stimulate, promote, and conduct systematic studies and research, cooperative experiments, education, conferences, and such other related activities as are desirable or necessary in fulfilling the purposes of the regional, state, and national associations. 


MASFAA MISSION STATEMENT

The Mission Statement has been updated several times since the legal creation of the Association but has always reflected the vision of those aid professionals who founded MASFAA. The current Mission Statement is included below. 

The Midwest Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA) is a regional organization of individuals engaged in or concerned with the ethical administration and/or support of student financial aid. Our mission is to promote and provide quality training and professional development opportunities, to advocate and support financial aid programs, and to facilitate effective communication and coordination among interrelated professional associations, thereby serving the needs and interests of students and postsecondary institutions. 

STRATEGIC GOALS

This Plan sets goals for the 3 main areas identified in the Mission Statement: Training and Professional Development, Advocacy, and Enhanced Communication and Coordination. This Plan also reaffirms MASFAA’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in all activities and adds goals for Association Infrastructure since those must remain strong in order for the other goals to be achieved.
