Campus Strategic Planning Process
Strategic planning is a process -- one that Chancellor Steinmetz believes should happen from the ground up, and be as inclusive as possible.
As part of this comprehensive approach to campus planning, Chancellor Steinmetz has met with every academic department, many interdisciplinary programs and centers on campus, students, faculty, and staff. The purpose was to help him to gain a deeper knowledge of the issues faced by the academic units, while providing an opportunity for departments to share their strengths, priorities, and future direction.
The process unfolded in several phases, the broad strokes of which are detailed below, and now enters the public review phase of a set of priorities, articulated below:
- (Spring Semester) Campus academic departments, centers and programs summarized their strengths, weaknesses, and challenges with an eye toward their future direction. They defined long-term goals, needs, priorities, directions and reported back to the chancellor’s and provost’s offices and the deans by the end of the semester via summary document.
- 75+ individual meetings held with the chancellor completed by May 31.
