Survey seeks input on university's strategic priorities

Emory Report | June 8, 2015

As Emory's current strategic plan, "Where Courageous Inquiry Leads," draws to a close, input is being sought from the campus community in preparation for the next cycle of strategy setting.

The first step in that process will involve a thorough review of the current strategic plan, and gathering public feedback on the plan's impact will be essential to that effort, according to a campus-wide message released by Claire Sterk, Emory provost and vice president of academic affairs, and Michael Sacks, vice provost for university strategies.

Members of the Emory community are invited to help launch that process by sharing opinions on two initial questions:

  • What university-level strategic priorities should be Emory's focus for the next five years?
  • How would you like us to engage or not engage you in this strategic process?

Beginning in mid-June, responses will be compiled and analyzed in order to help identify major themes. This fall, work will begin on creating an inclusive and transparent process for setting strategic priorities in support of Emory's mission.

Future plans will involve developing an initial draft of Emory's strategic initiatives for the next five years, including information on defining and measuring success. Drafts will be distributed for public feedback and revised accordingly.

Findings from the "Thinking and Acting Strategically" survey will be posted on the website of the Office of the Provost (www.provost.emory.edu), which is open to all members of the Emory community.
