In response to rapid changes in the education landscape and in recognition of PALNI's broad scope, the consortium has developed a dynamic planning tool, the Strategic Framework 2020-2023. The framework empowers PALNI with greater agility to meet the needs of our supported institutions.

The PALNI Framework is a tool used to evaluate needs and set priorities. To support student success, PALNI adjusts action plans on a quarterly basis to address evolving challenges and opportunities—ensuring we optimize our time, expertise, and resources.
