Strategic Planning: Retreat invite and website live

The facilitation team is moving along with the strategic planning work this summer, and we have a few updates to share:

  • The logistics for the college-wide retreat have been confirmed. We will come together on Saturday, October 5, from 9am to 5pm at CERC in Magnuson Park.

RSVP to let us know you can make it and to receive reminders.

  • You can now find updates on the strategic planning process at dean.be.uw.edu/strategic-planning. Right now, the page has limited information. Over the course of the academic year, the page will serve as a space to stay informed, share ideas and collaborate on the future of our college.

In other news, we are in the process of interviewing facilitators to find the best fit. We’ll have an update on our pick in two weeks. We are working to develop a comprehensive communication and outreach plan with the hopes of making the strategic planning process as inclusive as possible. If you have any ideas or thoughts, please feel free to share.

You can reach the facilitation team at our new email address, ftplanning@uw.edu, with any questions or ideas. The email will go to the two team co-leads and be shared as needed among the team members.

Thank you again for your time.
