Strategic planning groups await provost’s feedback

Leaders of the five strategic planning working groups are awaiting feedback from the provost on the strategies they’ve developed for advancing the University’s strategic goals to:

• Advance educational excellence;
• Engage in research of impact;
• Strengthen communities;
• Build foundational strength; and
• Embrace diversity and inclusion.

Details on a handful of “signature initiatives” already are posted in the “working groups” section at

However, just before spring break, group leaders submitted reports containing specific initiatives and strategies they’ve developed for achieving the goals.

They are to meet with Provost Patricia E. Beeson April 1 to map out final steps for completing their work, Executive Vice Provost David DeJong told the University Times. Final steps are expected to wrap up in June.

Once the reports are approved, they’ll be presented to the University community in public forums. Those sessions have yet to be scheduled, DeJong said.
