Strategic Planning 2017-18

In 2017-18, Sonoma State University is engaged in a strategic planning process that will set the direction for the university for years to come. Changes in leadership, organizational structure, personnel, and student demographics provide the backdrop to this planning process.

Student success is a top priority as we continue to improve graduation and retention rates and seek to eliminate the under-represented and Pell-eligible student achievement gap.

The planning process will position Sonoma State to serve all stakeholders—students, faculty, staff, alumni, business leaders, and community members—with integrity and will help Sonoma State be a leader in public higher education for the region and the state.  

Input about strategic planning can be sent at any time to strategic@sonoma.edu. Thank you in advance for your participation in this important process!

Take the Survey

Share. Shape. Unite. The Sonoma State Strategic Planning Survey
   As part of our strategic planning process, we are asking students, faculty, staff, community members, alumni, and regional partners to respond to a short survey.
The survey should take 10 minutes. It simply asks you to share your perspective about Sonoma State and its role in our region and the state. 
   Thank you for your support of this important process. Together, we are building our future @ SSU!
     Sincerely,
     Lisa Vollendorf, Provost, and
