With increasing pressure on higher education to demonstrate greater value and to educate students in new ways, we are being forced to make major changes in how we operate. Our strategic plans need to reflect those new ways of operating and prioritize the resources necessary to implement change. At the EACUBO Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD, Howard Teibel, Rebeca Mazzone, and Taylor Scott will address this important subject in their presentation, Building Momentum and True Dialogue in Strategic Planning.

How do you engage your entire campus community to make such a commitment? We are all aware that there is the writing of the plan; which is separate and apart from the undertaking of and commitment to the plan. Engage with the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) to learn how to develop a campus-wide effort to vision a strategy and prioritize resources to gain community buy-in and commitment. This initiative involved leaders from the President’s Cabinet, Deans Council and faculty to align institutional priorities with their Academic Plan.Learn how to bring everyone along in the conversation through candid dialogue, active listening and ability to put individual needs aside to create passion and enthusiasm for the Plan.
The EACUBO Annual Meeting runs from October 13-16 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. For more information visit EACUBO.org.
