CSU Dominguez Hills Takes Next Steps in Strategic Planning Process
California State University, Dominguez Hills is taking the next steps to shape the vision and strategic plan that will support the university’s commitment to become a “model urban university.” Faculty, students, staff, alumni, and community members recently shared their thoughts and views at a series of Town Halls that took place in the Loker Student Union this past month. Participants participated in discussions and exercises that helped to answer what it would mean for CSU Dominguez Hills to become a model urban university. In addition, the campus and community members also participated in an online survey.
“I would like to thank everyone for participating in the strategic planning process by sharing with us your experiences, your stories, and your challenges,” said President Mildred García in a message to campus. “Your contribution to the Town Hall meetings and completion of the online survey has been crucial to the strategic planning process.”
With the feedback sessions completed, a committee comprising faculty and staff members, called “synthesizers,” will come together to process the information collected. The strategic planning synthesizers will be meeting over the course of three days (March 23-26, 2009) and will analyze the many ideas and aspirations that were shared by the campus community. They will then complete a first draft of the strategic framework, which will be circulated to various campus constituencies for further feedback and refinement. That process will take place in late March. A rollout of the final version of the strategic plan is expected by the end of May.
