“I never used the words ‘strategic planning’…”
Mark Heckler has served as president of Valparaiso University since 2008. In his tenure so far, the institution has achieved some notable wins: expanded facilities, expanded academic programs and a five-year campaign achieving the largest fundraising goal ever achieved by a Lutheran University. Today, Dr. Heckler is overseeing the implementation of the most expansive and comprehensive strategic plan in the university’s 150-year history. He joins us on the show to talk about the planning process employed at Valparaiso, and how he and his team created a framework for crafting the next chapter of the institution with an eye toward inclusivity and diversity of perspective.
