West Virginia University Strategic Planning Council Chair Dr. Nigel Clark will be on the WVU Tech campus on November 16 for the “Dialogue for Our Future: The WVU Strategic Plan” forum. The event, which will be held in the WVU Tech Engineering Auditorium at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, is open to all faculty and staff, students, alumni, policymakers, and community members.
WVU President James P. Clements outlined the draft for the strategic plan during his State of the University address on October 11, highlighting five goals intended to move the state’s flagship institution into the next decade. More information on the process and a draft of the plan are available online at: http://strategicplan.wvu.edu/.
“Now that the draft plan has been out there circulating for a couple of weeks, it’s time for faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, policymakers, residents of our state everyone whose lives are touched by WVU in some way to have a voice in shaping and redefining our University’s future role and success,” said Dr. Clark. “All of us can contribute to the vision and plans for WVU’s role in education, research and outreach. This is your time to talk and our time to listen about ways to advance WVU’s goals.”
“The action plans and goals of WVU’s 10-year strategic plan fit well with Tech’s own 5-year strategic plan, and we look forward to a harmonious collaboration in reaching our collective objectives,” explained Dr. Guy Vitaglione, WVU Tech’s Strategic Planning Coordinator.
