New CBE Strategic Plan to Guide Decisions from 2020 through 2025: Your input needed

College of Business and Economics is launching a strategic planning process to develop a new Strategic Plan 2020-2025 that would guide all internal decision making including investments, hiring, changes to curriculum and degrees offered. The Strategic Plan starts top-down from broad definitions of the CBE mission, vision, and values that will be translated into strategic programs to guide every function and every department of the college.

CBE needs your help to define what we should do for our diverse stakeholders, how we do it and why. Your input is critically important for college governance and development. Please describe how you would enhance CBE’s current mission, vision, values and expected outcomes by completing the survey below. The survey will be open until Saturday, February 1st of 2020.
