RE: Strategic Planning Next Steps – YOUR input
The Strategic Planning Task Force is quickly building momentum. They are embarking on one of the most consequential steps in developing the next five-year plan for Purdue University Northwest —gathering input from you.
As the second phase of Imagine PNW, the strategic plan captures the spirit and vision of PNW’s future. For this to be the best possible plan in this period of dramatic change across higher education, the Strategic Planning Task Force needs YOU.
Task force members will begin a series of meetings, called engagement sessions, with various groups and stakeholders within and outside of PNW. These sessions are designed to give everyone who is part of our collective university community an opportunity to share their understandings of PNW, our challenges and our opportunities to become better.
While sessions are being planned in May and June, several for students and faculty will be conducted before the end of this semester. The complete list of engagement sessions is in the process of being posted to the Strategic Planning section of the Imagine PNW website. (See the initial list of engagement sessions.)
Please review the list carefully to find the one that makes the most sense for you to attend. If you do not see one that aligns with a group you are part of, a link will also be posted to submit a session request for the SPTF to consider.
The output from each session will be collected, evaluated by the Task Force, and soon after, posted to the Imagine PNW website.
Be part of imagining PNW’s future. Please make time to attend an engagement session.
