INSIDE BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY
Strategic plan final report now available
According to Provost Mary Ann Swain, who chaired the Strategic Planning Committee, “The strategic plan was developed with very broad campus input throughout the process. After the committee developed a first draft, we asked for and received valuable and substantive input from the campus. The second draft incorporated recommenda-tions based on that input, and then we vetted that draft again with the campus. The feedback we received this time was more nuanced — dealing with changes in emphasis and language.
“This final draft addresses those recommendations. We are satisfied that we now have a plan that is based on our historical strengths while leading us in new directions that will empower us to evolve, grow and enrich the Binghamton University education over the next decade. I want to thank all of those who gave their thought and time to this important effort,” she said.
All divisions of the University are developing specific tactical recommendations to fulfill the broad direction of the plan. “We have the road map in place. Now we need the tangible pro-grams and initiatives that will help us advance in our chosen direction,” Swain said.
Further developments of the strategic plan will be communi-cated as the division plans are developed.
