The Wooster Campus Strategic Plan continues to progress, Dave Benfield, director of the CFAES Wooster Campus, reported in a recent email to faculty and staff. The Strategic Planning Task Force is taking a “deeper dive” into comments received during public sessions in September and October, he wrote, and subcommittees now are pursuing six areas as part of the plan: Operational Excellence and Resource Stewardship, Civic and Community Relations, Education, Outreach/Extension, Research, and Private-Sector Partnerships. Those areas are coordinated with CFAES’ four grand challenges: Sustainability, One Health, the Rural-Urban Interface, and Preparing the Next Generation of Scientists and Leaders.
You can find further details and updates on the plan’s website. You’re encouraged to contact any task force member with ideas and suggestions you may have. (Photo: Aerial image of CFAES Wooster Campus, 2016, Ken Chamberlain, CFAES.)
