Strategic Planning Initiative 2014-17

In spring 2014 WCSU embarked on a new Strategic Planning Initiative in order to examine and update the 2005 Strategic Plan. President Schmotter formed a Steering Committee and charged them with coordinating the university-wide effort to revisit the university’s Mission, Vision & Values, and Strategic Goals.

Meaningful, effective strategic planning necessitates the participation of WCSU faculty, staff, and students as well as key individuals from the nonprofit, governmental, and business communities. Participation will be sought through these and other avenues:

  • School opening meetings
  • Meetings with specific internal and external groups
  • Online survey and suggestion box
  • Open forums
  • Individual contacts
  • Stakeholders Conference
  • Shared Governance
  • Student government and organizations

Expected Planning Time Frame:

  • Formation of Steering Committee: January 2014
  • Establishment of Subcommittees: March 2014
  • Obtain feedback from WCSU community on existing Mission: August—October 2014
  • Steering Committee to draft Mission: October 2014
  • Stakeholders Conference
  • Obtain feedback and approval from WCSU community and external stakeholders on draft Mission: December 2014—February 2015
  • Draft Values: January 2015—August 2015
  • Obtain approval from the University Senate for the Mission and Values: Spring 2015
  • Identify key challenges/issues/aspirations: Fall 2015
  • Develop Strategic Goals and Vision: Spring 2016-Fall 2016
  • Obtain approval from the University Senate for the Strategic Goals and Vision: Spring 2017
  • Obtain approval from the CSCU Board of Regents for the Strategic Mission and Vision: Spring 2017
