Phase I Strategic Planning

Getting Organized

(Establishing the planning task force and focusing on capacity building and organization of the process)

As the 2006-2011 strategic planning cycle came to an end, the Strategic Planning and Resources Council (SPARC) at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke was reorganized to include more faculty involvement.  Dr. Kyle Carter, Chancellor, appointed two co-chairs for the council:  Dr. Ken Kitts, Provost, and Dr. Mario Paparozzi, Chair, Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice.  In the summer of 2011, SPARC members attended a retreat in order to experience the kinds of data-gathering designs they would need to engage with stakeholders.
