Strategic Visioning Process
"We are the ones we've been waiting for."
Strategic Plan Convocation:
Background on the Strategic Planning Process
The process of strategic planning at RU-N was democratic and participatory, with productive discussion of ways to build on our excellence as a research university and leader in higher education for the 21st century. Faculty, staff, students, alumni, and external supporters and partners participated throughout, with the following activites:
The Spring 2014 Strategic Planning Dialogues included almost 20 days of listening tours with all current students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty and staff; input gathered through electronic communications with all current students, faculty, staff, and alumni; 4 town hall meetings; engagement with leadership bodies such as the RU-N Advisory Board and Newark Faculty Council; Essex County Legislators, Newark Municipal Council, community education advocates and nonprofit leaders, and feedback from strategic visioning charrettes that brought together 172 faculty, staff, and students in 11 representative groups. These engagements will continue in the fall with listening tours with alumni and conversations with public and private sector leaders and advocates.
