Your Input On The Strategic Plan Requested By Sept. 19

September 10, 2018

Dear Lewis & Clark Community,

I invite you to participate in our last survey on the Strategic Plan’s institutional goals and priorities. At their May meeting, our Board of Trustees approved the Vision, Purpose, and Values, and the Objectives and Priorities. Since then, the Executive Council and I have worked to build out each of the priorities in sufficient detail to get us started toward our goals. The board will review the final plan in October, so we seek your additional input now.

Please follow this link to read the full plan and provide feedback by Wednesday, September 19. 

In addition, we will hold sessions on each of the three campuses if you wish to discuss the plan or provide feedback in person. You may attend any of the sessions.

Please RSVP for each event you wish to attend: 

Law School Campus: McCarty Classroom 1 on Thursday, September 13, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m.

Undergraduate Campus: Stamm on Monday, September 17, from 11:30 to 1 p.m.

Graduate School Campus: South Chapel on Tuesday, September 18, from 4 to 5:20 p.m.

Thank you for participating in previous surveys and sessions. We’ve heard from hundreds of you, and I have reviewed all of your feedback. It has been instrumental in drafting our plan.

This process reinforces for me how much you all care about this institution—how proud you are about our strengths today and our potential for the future. I pledge that the entire Executive Council will hold itself accountable for the priorities the planning process will identify.

Of course, not everything will happen overnight: this will be a multiyear plan, and each of the three schools is working on its own strategic plan. But be assured I’m committed to working with you all, and to making sure our leadership team works with everyone to focus our strengths and to address our issues over time. The strategic plan will allow everyone to see where we are headed and to make decisions accordingly.

Again, thank you for your support and for your engagement in this process that is so vital to our success.
