Overview / Philosophy:
CFAES wishes to position strategic planning as a learning and alignment process instead of a compliance requirement. This flips the traditional, linear process to a learning process that promotes focus on clarity, possibility, and encourages alignment via iteration. This will improve and transform the way we do things to meet our mission.
Our Guiding Question:
Given the grand challenges facing Ohio and our world today, how can our college become a modern and effective institution that consistently makes decisions and allocates resources in support of our mission in the next 3 to 5 years?
- Socialize our Mission: "We Sustain Life".
- Delineate our values and explore “Land Grant Principles”.
- Implement processes and practices to support our mission, vision and values.
- Articulate priorities for a modern and effective CFAES.
- Strengthen and align CFAES organizational culture.
- Finalize process for input, writing the plan, and communicating [Jan-Feb 2019]
- Gathering input [March-July 2019]
- Writing / wordsmithing [August-September 2019]
