The Charting Our Future process was created to bring together existing planning efforts and allow members of our community to participate in creating a unified plan. The planning process can be divided into several phases, some of which have been completed.
Strategic Planning Readiness (Complete)
During spring and summer 2008, a strategic planning readiness team worked with University leadership to create a starting point for dialogue.
Community Engagement (Complete)
Charting Our Future week (September 8-12) brought approximately 600 faculty, staff and students together in eight collaborative dialogue sessions to talk about big ideas. Individuals who could not participate in person were invited to offer ideas through this blog.
Strategy Development and Prioritization
A revised Working Framework was created based on the input from the Charting Our Futures Sessions. The Vision, Mission, Values and Goals identified in the framework will become the basis for developing distinctive and major approaches to support the accomplishment of Goals.
A process for strategy development has been designed in partnership with the Faculty Senate and the Administrative and Classified Staff councils. In addition, everyone in the BGSU community is invited and encouraged to participate in the development of strategies through this blog. Each of the six goals identified in the Working Framework have blog pages where you can submit your strategy ideas.
Plan Execution and Monitoring
Selected strategies will be cascaded to colleges and departments to determine appropriate actions to implement within their organization.
