Coordinating Committee Membership

The strategic planning Coordinating Committee is a working committee convened to gather information, feedback and input from across the university to help inform the creation of a university-wide strategic plan, and to scan the external environment for information and trends that will affect strategic planning decisions. The Coordinating Committee will not be writing the plan or setting priorities; the President and Provost are responsible for the final plan. Individual committee members were chosen for their specific expertise and skills. Work groups representative of a broad range of campus stakeholders will be convened by the Coordinating Committee and other members of university leadership throughout the planning year to ensure full representation of the diverse range of university perspectives.
