Strategic Plan

Year 1 of Implementation, 2017-18

To the members of the university community, friends, and stakeholders:

This web page is designed to detail progress to implement our Strategic Plan and to provide a history of the process. As we work to realize the goals of the plan, two committees have been constituted: the Implementation Committee and the Evaluation of Programs Committee.

The Implementation Committee is tracking progress on the goals, providing assistance by having representatives serve on committees dedicated to achieving specific action steps, and working to ensure that the plan is a dynamic one by hearing concerns that may arise as it is being rolled out.

Implementation Committee

Ann Atkinson, Co-Chair Academic Affairs
Mary-Ann Dease Financial Planning & Budgets
Carlos Dos Santos Student Government Association
Terrence Dwyer Ancell School of Business: Justice & Law Administration
Elisabeth Morel Student Affairs: AccessAbility Services
Gabriel Lomas School of Professional Studies: Education & Educational Psychology
Thomas Philbrick, Co-Chair University Senate
Catherine Vanaria Visual & Performing Arts: Art
Katy Wiss Macricostas School of Arts & Sciences: Communication & Media Arts


The Evaluation of Programs Committee is focused on the fifth goal of the plan—to create a self-sustaining financial model—by designing a template to be approved by the University Senate that will be used to evaluate all programs on campus—academic, support, outreach, and administrative. The committee hopes to present a draft of the template to the University Senate in April.

Evaluation of Programs Committee

Charles Alexander Student Affairs: Office of Judicial Affairs
Marcia Delcourt School of Professional Studies: Education & Educational Psychology

On the left side of the web page is a listing of the documents that informed the crafting of the mission, values, and vision statements and the goals of the plan as well as documents which discuss how the plan came to be.  

We will provide updates regularly so the campus community can see what action steps are being achieved, any changes to deadlines or approaches to strategies, and progress on each of the five goals.
