Nearing Completion of Phase 2 of Strategic Plan
St. Jerome’s University’s (SJU) President and Vice Chancellor Peter Meehan is pleased to announce an update on the progress of the university’s Strategic Plan. The plan is currently in Phase 2 of a four-phase process of completion.
As part of its governance responsibilities, every five years the university goes through a strategic planning process to review and define its mission, values and goals; establish priorities as an institution; and map out how it is going to achieve them. A Strategic Plan Steering Committee is guiding the preparation of the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan. A working group made up of Faculty, Staff, Board, and Administration representatives are working as a subset of the committee on the first draft of the plan.
“Due to the diligence of this working group we are nearing the completion of a draft,” stated Meehan. “In the upcoming fall term the full Steering Committee will begin meeting again and with the support of our facilitator Rebecca Sutherns from Sage Solutions, we will bring the draft of the proposed plan back to our community for feedback.”
In Phase 3 the draft plan will be reviewed and refined to prepare a document to be presented to the university’s Board of Governors for final review and approval. Once approved the Steering Committee will complete the final work in the Strategic Plan process: Stage 4 – Roll-out.
“We remain committed to keeping our community updated on our progress as we complete these final stages,” added Meehan. “We look forward to working together to roll-out the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan when it is approved, and to supporting its commitments and achieving its identified goals for the university.”
