Reaching for the future.
In the 2008-2009 academic year the School of Business and Economics undertook a comprehensive strategic planning effort, beginning with ideas generated in school meetings, executive team retreats, and in advisory board sessions. In the spring of 2009, a formal strategic planning retreat was held involving faculty, staff, students, alumni, university leaders, and members of the business community. In the fall of 2009, task forces were formed to generate the actions that will focus our School for the next five years. A final Stakeholder Summit was held in December 2009 to assimilate feedback on the plan and engage broad participation in the activity it has generated.
This Executive Summary reflects the highlights and results of that process with an emphasis on the actions that will guide our work over the next few years. Please read our executive summary and join us in reaching for the future (pdf).
And - a strategic plan should be a living document that evolves as conditions change, and new opportunities arise. All comments, ideas, and recommendations are welcome! Please direct your suggestions to Dr. William Silver, Dean.
