The planning process will be open and inclusive.
We will engage individuals across the campus and our broader communities. After consultation with deans, the Faculty Senate, the Staff Advisory Council and other groups, we will convene a Strategic Plan Steering Committee composed of faculty, students, staff and alumni, and in turn launch individual working groups to concentrate specifically on some of the plan's key elements.
In the coming weeks and months we will conduct multiple open forums to provide information and updates and hear your thoughts about the university's future.
We also will provide online opportunities to learn more about the process, and to submit comments electronically.
This process allows us to reflect upon lessons learned from the past five years, and to consider how we best can make CWRU competitive among comprehensive private research universities.
