The 18-month process to create this strategic plan was inclusive, consultative and collaborative, with input from students, staff, faculty, parents, alumni and our extended community. Student development theory, information gathering, National Survey of Student Engagement (N.S.S.E.) data, campus climate surveys, data analysis, national best practices and benchmarking, research and university strategic alignment remain at the forefront of our intentional planning practice.
Sustaining meaningful partnerships and collaborations is one of the core values that guides our daily work. In honoring that commitment, we intentionally sought as much input as possible during the development of this plan.
