by Dr. David Rylander, Strategic Planning Co-Chair
The Strategic Planning Design Team is pleased to announce that we are nearing a draft plan, after extensive input from listening sessions and planning groups. Over 80 people, including faculty, staff, administrators and students, have worked hard developing ideas in key areas of importance. We will have the draft plan ready for review and feedback next semester. We are also excited to announce that Amy O’Keefe has agreed to fill Heather Speed’s position as Co-Chair of the strategic planning process.
This process has been challenging, as we have followed Chancellor Feyten’s desire for a more inclusive, organic plan, but the end result should be better than a top-down approach. With your help, we will have a plan that distinguishes and strengthens TWU and works for all employees and students. I also want to thank the staff for having the biggest turnouts at our listening sessions, and I hope you will continue to give your input as we vet the plan next semester.
