Campus Participation Needed at February Strategic Plan Meetings

Two faculty and two staff meetings have been scheduled for February as we continue work on the Archways Plan 2017, the university's strategic plan.

At the February meetings faculty and staff will have the opportunity to score and discuss a set of strategic objectives that are on a preliminary strategy map. That strategy map has grown out of the campus forums held in November. Through a winnowing process with several stages, we are in the process of moving from more than 150 initial suggestions to a final strategy map that we estimate will have 5-7 key strategic objectives for NWU to pursue during 2014-2017.

Staff: The regular monthly staff meeting scheduled for Monday, February 10, from 9-10 a.m. in Callen will be used to share the strategy map and score the draft strategic objectives on the map. A second special staff meeting is planned for Wednesday, February 19, from 9-10 a.m. to see the results of the scoring process and discuss in small groups the benefits of including the draft strategic objectives in the final strategy map to be shared with the Board of Governors.

Faculty: Members of the faculty are asked to review the strategy map and score the draft strategic objectives during the division meetings scheduled for Monday, February 17, from 4-5 p.m. A second series of meetings with the faculty will be held on Tuesday, February 25, from 4-5 p.m. Faculty will see the results of the scoring process and discuss in small groups the benefits of including the draft strategic objectives in the final strategy map to be shared with the Board of Governors.

Faculty and staff input is extremely important as we continue with this second campus-wide phase of the planning process. 

All Archways Plan 2017 documents are posted on the Faculty/Staff web page.
