University Strategic Plan Gets More Detailed
It’s been a long time in the making, but the University Strategic Planning Process is nearing completion, though some work remains to be done. President Larry Edward Penley launched the overall process in Spring 2004. Following a series of general planning meetings, he charged Task Forces with the responsibility to develop discrete components of the overall plan.
Dr. Lance Perryman, Dean of the College and co-chair of the Discovery Task Force, noted that final reports from the Task Forces are due Feb. 15. At that point, Dr. Tony Frank, Vice President for Research and Information Technology; Provost Peter Nicholls; and Patricia Beaty, Vice Chancellor for Strategic Planning for the CSU System, will merge the Task Force reports into a cohesive document. Once complete, this document will be posted to the University web site. Dr. Perryman encourages all faculty, staff and students to review the document and let him know of any questions or concerns. The document can be viewed at http://www.president.colostate.edu/strategicplanning/. The web site also features an FAQ section, University mission and values, overview of the strategic planning process, response and input sections for comments, planning timeline, and more.
In addition to the University Strategic Plan, each college has been asked to develop a parallel strategic plan and file that plan on or shortly after April 15. Dr. Perryman will be drafting the College strategic plan and will post that draft to the College web site for comments and feedback. When complete, the draft plan will be posted to www.cvmbs.colostate.edu.
“As a follow-up to the University Strategic Plan and College Strategic Plan, each department will be asked to examine their own strategic plan and determine what changes need to be made over the remainder of the calendar year to bring it in step with overall University and College goals and missions,” said Dr. Perryman. “This comprehensive process will help us to chart a robust course for the University, as well as our College and its departments.”
