The Strategic Planning Committee is hosting four informational sessions on the draft Strategic Plan that will guide the University to 2025. We will present the draft content and invite your reflections on it. We have scheduled four sessions to accommodate as many schedules as possible - there is no need to come to more than one.
The Strategic Planning Committee has been hard at work this summer assembling all of the input we have received, looking for themes and consensus, and developing metrics and actions that will demonstrate progress on the plan’s goals. We have included these changes in the plan and posted a new draft. You can see online how the drafts have evolved over the last year as we have incorporated changes we heard from you were important. We hope you will see in this draft the desired future of Montana State as we have heard you describe it.That future is one where our work has impact and is relevant to the needs of our students and state. The plan describes the promise of the land-grant university to transform lives and sustain communities.While the high level direction described in the plan has been vetted for many months, there are still ways we can make the plan more compelling, more exciting, and more promising. We hope you will help us.SPC members have all expressed gratitude for the wisdom and attention you have devoted to planning so far. Of course, not everything we have heard will find its way into the final plan, particularly when we have heard divergent opinions. The SPC was charged with writing a plan informed by the University community that is more focused than the current plan, and we have done our best to be disciplined. Strategic plans require we make choices among good ideas. In this plan, we choose to highlight the things Montana State needs to do differently, better, or at scale, recognizing that there are many important activities that are not mentioned in the plan that we will continue to do with excellence.
