Strategic Plan: Timeline

As part of this inclusive and transparent process, we reached out through online portals, poster sessions and interactive workshops to garner as many different perspectives and ideas as possible. Additionally, we provided more than 10 community-wide updates to ensure that all members of the community felt informed and a part of the process.

What’s next?

We now move into our next important stage of asking all departments and divisions to define specific initiatives, targets and measures consistent with the broad plan goals, along with identifying necessary resource and technology needs. By mid-April we will be ready to lay out the specific initiatives to be accomplished over the next five years. These initiatives and the resource needs will be presented to the Board of Trustees at their May 7 meeting.
