The Strategic Planning Council
The Strategic Planning Council was established by President Allen who appointed faculty, staff, students, alumni and trustees with the following charge:
- To advise the president on the development, coordination, integration and evaluation of the strategic plan;
- To study and interpret data relevant to the institution and the external environment;
- To assist in engaging the total institutional community as fully as possible in the planning process and in communicating with key stakeholders.
Three task forces were established to assist with key components of the planning process. The Situation Analysis Task Force was responsible for collecting and interpreting data to better understand the planning context and identify strategic issues. The Stakeholders Conference Task Force assisted in planning a large group event designed to engage the university’s major stakeholders in the planning process. The Outcomes and Measures Task Force developed outcome statements and suggested ways to measure progress toward achieving the mission and vision.
