Welcome Back & Strategic Planning Community Forums

Dear UConn Faculty & Staff,

We hope you are getting settled into the semester after a successful Fall Opening and first few weeks of classes. It is because of you that our students experience such a warm welcome to our campuses and are excited to be a part of our vibrant community.

This year in particular holds great promise, as we embark on a journey of strategic growth and development. As many of you may know, we have begun engaging in the strategic planning process aimed at shaping the future of our institution. We are pleased to share with you a new webpage that will host information about committee and working group membership, our progress forward, and ways to participate with us. We are excited to be serving as the Co-Chairs of this extremely important initiative for the university and grateful to the steering committee and working group members for their commitment to this work.

Your engagement is essential to the success of this process. We believe that the collective wisdom of our faculty, staff, and students is integral to shaping the future of our university. To this end, we are pleased to announce that community forums will be held the week of September 18th, providing an opportunity for everyone to actively participate in discussions, share insights, and help define our strategic priorities. There will be opportunities to engage either in-person on the Storrs campus or virtually.

Each member of our faculty and staff holds a unique perspective on what the future of UConn can be. We want to hear from you about what you think is most important for us moving forward, and how you think we can get there. Together, we will build a future that builds on our strengths while embracing new opportunities for progress.
