TO: The San Diego State University community FROM: Bill Eadie, Chair, University Senate RE: Invitation to a Forum on the University's Strategic Plan On behalf of the University Senate, I would like to invite any interested member of the SDSU community to attend an open forum on the university's strategic plan. The forum will be held in conjunction with the February 5 University Senate meeting in AL 101. The Senate meeting will convene at 2 p.m., and the forum will start as soon as the Senate has concluded its business or 3 p.m., whichever comes first. During the fall semester, working groups and task forces consisting of faculty, staff, students, alumni, administrators and community members have been meeting to gather information and ideas and make suggestions for strategic priorities for SDSU to implement in the next two-five years. Working groups reported to one of five task forces: - Student Success and Academic Excellence - Research and Creative Endeavors - Community Engagement (inclusive of Campus Climate, K-12 partnerships, Alumni Engagement and Economic Development) - Diversity - Internationalization Final versions of the task force reports will be posted on February 1 to the strategic plan website: Strategic plan website A summary of the task force reports will be included in the Senate agenda, which is posted at: Senate Agenda The forum will begin with a brief summary of each task force's recommendations, provided by one of the Senate representatives to that task force. We will then take comments and questions until approximately 4 p.m. The comments will be used by the strategic plan steering committee as it winnows the task force reports further to form a set of campus priorities.
