CEHD Strategic Plan 2015-2020
As noted in my December 4 email, the CEHD Strategic Plan has been finalized and submitted to the Provost. I appreciate the various individuals and groups who accessed the online document and provided feedback for the leadership team’s consideration.
Each department head, in consultant with their faculty and staff, is now in the process of creating a strategic plan for their department with anticipated final versions during the spring semester.
The PwC recommendations also have been submitted to the Provost. Pending the review by the Provost and President, reports from across the University (including academic colleges and other units) will be compiled and presented to the Board of Regents and PwC representatives in February.
