Strategic Planning Update
I am pleased to report that the Strategic Planning Process is progressing well and to encourage you to participate in upcoming opportunities to review and improve the emerging plan. Current versions of working drafts of a revised mission statement, core values, a vision statement, and six campus goals can be found at the Strategic Planning website at http://www.d.umn.edu/chancellor/planning/
This week we will share elements of the plan with community members in a series of community forums, and the Strategic Planning Steering Committee will meet again to review the plan's progress and to incorporate the community input into our draft documents. Next week a second campus forum will be held 3:00-4:30 p.m. on March 29 in the Kirby Ballroom. At this forum a complete draft of the strategic plan, including action steps for each of the six goals, will be presented. I hope you will be able to participate in the forum and provide feedback on the draft plan, but if you cannot, please visit the Strategic Planning website and share your thoughts through the blog or by email.
I appreciate everyone's contributions to the planning activities to date and look forward to bringing the process to a successful conclusion.
