The Strategic Planning Process and Inputs
The planning process will include an assessment of the outcomes and impact of the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, review of the College’s mission and values statements, an analysis of the internal and external environment, the formulation of strategies, and the development of specific goals and initiatives in support of those strategies. The final steps are to embed these strategies in goals, assign responsibility, and to assess outcomes and impact.
The College is currently in its Middle States Commission on Higher Education self-study process. The self-study process, the evidence inventory, the institutional priorities, and the report itself are important inputs to the strategic planning process.
The Strategic Plan Steering Committee is responsible for ensuring a transparent, inclusive, and meaningful process, one that seeks out and incorporates the voices and perspectives of all members of the Marist community. One of the first objectives of the Steering Committee will be to develop a robust communications and engagement strategy that ensures multiple opportunities and vehicles through which you can contribute your ideas, including participation on a working group, in a listening session or town hall, or through written feedback submitted via firstname.lastname@example.org.
