In May, faculty, staff and students began the planning process for creating a new strategic plan for the University of Northern Iowa that will chart our course into the future. Over the summer a Strategic Planning Committee has worked diligently to develop a first draft of the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan. The Committee has gathered significant input from faculty, staff and students, as well as alumni, donors and community leaders from around Iowa and beyond. The Committee has utilized this input in developing the draft 2017-2022 Strategic Plan for your review.
The Committee requests your feedback on the first draft of the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan. I want to formally invite you to participate in one of the Town Hall Meetings hosted by the Strategic Planning Committee on September 15 and September 16 in the Commons Slife Ballroom.
Thursday, September 15, 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
Thursday, September 15, Noon to 1:00 p.m.
Friday, September 16, 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.
If you are unable to participate in one of the Town Hall Meeting, you can view the draft 2017-2022 Strategic Plan, beginning September 6, and provide feedback by going to the 2017-2022 Strategic Planning website.
I hope you will participate in one of the Town Hall Meetings or provide feedback online. Your participation is critical as we chart the path for the University of Northern Iowa’s future.
