Phase II Strategic Planning

Data Gathering and Engagement

The heart of the Collaborative Strategic Planning approach is meaningful engagement of stakeholders throughout the institution.  Every SPARC member was assigned to a team whose job it was to gather information from a particular group, e.g., faculty, staff, Board of Trustees, undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, etc.  The guiding principle behind this data-gathering was that every voice included in the process makes the resulting strategic plan stronger.
