Bowling Green State University
The Charting Our Future process was created to bring together existing planning efforts and allow members of our community to participate in creating a unified plan. Each of the development phases is complete, the Board of Trustees has approved the plan and the University community is ready to move into execution.
STRATEGIC PLANNING READINESS (complete)
During spring and summer 2008, a strategic planning readiness team worked with University leadership to create a starting point for dialogue.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT (complete)
Charting Our Future week (September 8-12) brought approximately 600 faculty, staff and students together in eight collaborative dialogue sessions to talk about big ideas. Individuals who could not participate in person were invited to offer ideas through this blog.
STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT AND PRIORITIZATION (complete)
Nearly 200 potential Strategies were identified both by six cross-functional teams with representatives from the President’s Expanded Cabinet, Faculty Senate, Classified and Administrative Staff Councils and by individuals throughout the university via the blog. The rich set of submissions was enhanced during a forum, which resulted in seven distinct Strategies that cut across the Goals identified.
PLAN EXECUTION AND MONITORING (in progress)
Selected strategies will be cascaded to colleges and departments to determine appropriate actions to implement within their organization.
