2023 Strategic Plan
Thank you for participating in charting the course the College will take over the next five years.
We encourage students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners to visit often to find updates and contribute feedback during this important process. Here we will post source documents, minutes from committee meetings, information about upcoming listening sessions, surveys to assist in providing comments and pose questions, and drafts of the strategic plan for your review.
Strategic Plan Draft
With leadership from co-chairs Thyra Knapp and Becky Simmons and input from many of you along with other stakeholders, the Strategic Plan Committee has created the A&S Strategic Plan draft.
We would love to hear from you! After reviewing the plan draft, please take a moment to complete the survey at the link below to provide your feedback.
A&S Strategic Plan Timeline
Initiated by Dean Rundquist in May 2022, the planning process began over the summer and the committee formed and met initially in September 2022. The committee members, representing a variety of constituencies, will meet regularly, hold listening sessions with stakeholders, and share their progress here (and via email) to ensure that the strategic planning process remains open, inclusive, and collaborative.
