As the holiday season approaches, I extend my warmest wishes to you and your families.
I am writing to share updates on the strategic planning processes currently underway in the colleges and schools. A common thread among these plans is the commitment to inclusivity and engagement, reflecting our university’s dynamic and diverse academic environment. Following is a brief summary of the activities in each college.
Each plan is in a dynamic state of development, continually evolving to reflect the changing needs and aspirations of our academic disciplines.
As you are aware, there is much data that are available on the Institutional Research & Market Analytics website that can provide you with insights as you contribute to the unit’s strategic plan. For specific information regarding your program or department, you might want to take a look at the Department and Program Resource Room which provides you with specific program information including but not limited to new and continuing enrollment by program, DFW rates, average class sizes, and a newly added retention resource room.
Your input and engagement are invaluable in this ongoing process. Should you have insights or questions, I encourage you to reach out to your respective deans. They are instrumental in shaping these living documents and can offer insights into how your contributions can further refine and enhance our collective vision. Thank you for your dedication to our shared mission and for your contributions towards shaping a future that reflects our collective aspirations and values.
Wishing you and yours the very best for the holiday season and beyond.
