This Week's Message
Thank you to all who participated in the Augustana 2020 strategic planning process. By my count, over 200 faculty, staff and administrators participated with the task forces at the campus-wide retreat or at the October Board meeting. There is still time to comment on the current draft of the plan before the Board finalizes the plan in late January.
The most recent draft of the plan can be found at the Augustana 2020 website: http://www.augustana.edu/general-information/presidents-office/strategic-plan
As you review and comment on the plan, please consider whether the plan is consistent with our mission, but bold and innovative enough to address the disruptive changes we are seeing in higher education. Will Augustana be stronger in 2020 if we implement the plan? Does the plan effectively position Augustana as a top tier choice for students in the shrinking universe of traditional liberal arts colleges?
To share your feedback on the plan, please click on the survey monkey link below. Your responses will be anonymous.
I look forward to receiving your feedback and comments, as we work to finalize the plan for Board consideration in January 2014.
