Update on Strategic Planning
I want to thank the faculty and staff who have participated in the most recent phase of conversations regarding the elaborated strategic plan. Approximately 15 open gatherings were held during the spring quarter and a few more are scheduled to take place in early summer. More than 50 faculty and staff served as discussion organizers and drafters of expanded descriptions of components of the plan. Approximately 135 additional faculty and staff participated in the discussions to develop more detailed and concrete ideas for implementing the elaborated strategic plan. The outcome of the process will be invaluable in informing the development of the comprehensive fundraising campaign.
As a reminder, text and historical background for Santa Clara 2020, the integrated strategic plan, can be viewed online. I also encourage you to visit the working site where a number of descriptions have been posted for the entire campus community to review. More descriptions will be posted over time.
