Strategic Planning Update

To the University Community:

As we approach the end of the semester, we are writing to provide you with an update on the progress of our strategic planning efforts. In early November, we hosted three virtual public forums to share the initiatives and areas of focus that had emerged through the last few months. The feedback and insights gathered from university wide surveys, previous forums, and individual meetings with groups of faculty, staff and students has been invaluable and was critical in shaping the direction of our shared goals and initiatives. The steering committee and working groups, led by their co-chairs, worked tirelessly to build a plan that reflects the vision of our community and speaks to who we are and who we want to be as a 21st century land-grant public research institution.

Throughout this process, we have had touchpoints and meaningful conversations with over 10,000 members of UConn Nation. This is above and beyond the typical input for a university-wide strategic plan. We are immensely proud of the commitment our faculty, staff, students and alumni have to this university and want to express sincere gratitude for the time, energy and effort that each of you have contributed.

We are in the final stages of drafting the plan and it is being shared with university leadership. The draft will be presented to the Board of Trustees in this month for their consideration and input. We will continue to share updates with you as we near the end of this stage of our process.

This does not mean we are finished. In the spring, we will launch into academic planning and developing operational plans to put our plan into action. Strategic planning is a continuous process, and we will need to rely on our people to help us move forward to implement our collective vision for the future of UConn. There will be more to share soon, so we encourage you to visit our strategic planning page for updates as they’re available.
