Aggie Ingeniero, November 2017




By way of developing a strategic plan in which all of our constituencies take ownership, we have taken steps to compile data and trends on college research productivity, enrollment and retention and faculty strengths.  A survey was sent to all our faculty and staff to compile our collective strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and aspirations.  A small committee at the college level is looking at this data closely and I plan to hold a couple of meetings during the next few months to summarize the findings and recommendations to our faculty, staff, students and advisory council members.  My goal is to have a plan that is collectively developed and openly shared with all of our constituencies, and vitalized with clear intention to meet the goals and metrics.  I view our alumni and employers as important groups that could provide very important feedback in this process.  I invite any input these groups can provide for us as we move forward with this important activity.
