Implementation

Visit this site often to get updates on the actions we are undertaking to implement the strategic plan. The full strategic plan includes six goals and 22 individual strategies to achieve those goals. A small, but representative, Implementation Team is coordinating the overall logistics and implementation of Bold Aspirations. Our focus this year is on establishing a new core curriculum, strengthening the pipeline to and through KU, funding for doctoral education, and pursuit of the strategic initiatives. In addition to these areas of focus, there has also been momentum building for several first-year experience programs to be piloted in 2012-2013. The Implementation Team meets twice a month and you can follow updates from the group here.

The strategic plan is summarized below in graphical form; with its six goals and the strategies we are pursuing to achieve those goals. Click on any box to get detailed information about each individual strategy, and the steps we are taking to achieve our goals. The navy boxes indicate the strategies we are focusing on in the first year.
