SCU: Impact 2028 will be an aspirational, authentic plan that outlines goals and strategies for forming leaders of competence, conscience, and compassion. A broad swath of stakeholders (including students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, regents, and the Jesuit community) will have opportunities for input throughout the process.
President Sullivan announced the initiation of SCU’s strategic planning process. PAC met to review the steps, examine the landscape of higher education, and create a process for inviting community input as it begins to ideate around the vision for SCU’s next five years.
Aspirations and opportunities
PAC collected survey data from faculty, students, staff, and alumni about aspirations for SCU, distinctive strengths, and greatest opportunities, and combined it with feedback collected from trustees and regents.
Initial themes and priorities
Over the course of two working sessions, PAC met to review baseline ideas and aspirations from the community and SCU's opportunities, synthesizing this data with insights about the higher education landscape. PAC defined initial themes and priorities.
Students, faculty, staff, administrative leaders, alumni, trustees, regents, and Jesuit community members provided feedback on preliminary ideas and themes. Consultation occurred with Faculty, Student, and Staff Senates.
PAC working sessions
In the final session of the academic year, PAC built on feedback from focus groups to draft goals and an initial set of strategies. Over the summer, PAC will organize advisory groups to evaluate the feasibility of proposed initiatives.
Community town halls
PAC will share the draft set of strategies that form the pillars of SCU: Impact 2028, and gather insights from attendees to help refine these action plans.
Finalizing the strategic plan
Considering feedback from stakeholders across campus, PAC will refine the strategies and actions that form the pillars of SCU: Impact 2028 for ratification by the Board of Trustees.
