Update on Progress: Themes ready for review soon

First-phase strategic renewal conversations wrapped up at the end of December. Now, the advisory committee is working on summarizing inputs from the fall into a number of overarching themes and exploring those themes further. The result will be a draft document that will be shared with the community for consultation. Feedback from that consultation will be used to prepare a final set of recommendations for the Senate and Board of Governors to review.

The Final Product: What to Expect

When the strategic renewal process is complete, we’ll provide a widely available, high-level document that contains aspirational stretch-goals for the University.

Over the next five to 10 years, this document will be a critical platform in developing all of the University’s academic and operational plans.

Beginning in fall 2016, we’ll share regular updates about the University’s future plans that reflect the strategic goals and how we’re progressing with them.

Why strategic renewal matters

A renewed strategic vision will help us capture the University’s common purpose and what its future should look like over the next five to 10 years. Through strategic renewal, we’ll reclaim and assert essential traditions and long-standing areas of strength, while integrating them with new opportunities. Together, we are charting our path forward.
