Input Sought: Institutional Strategic Plan for Global Engagement


These are exciting times in which you are invited to take an active role.

Our office is developing a strategic plan that will define our priorities and goals over the next several years. Cross-functional sub-committees have identified opportunities, challenges, and subsequent recommendations within four major areas of focus:

International Partnerships and Engagement
Global Education and Mobility Pathway
International Diversity and Campus Climate
Global Profile and Reputation

We invite faculty, staff and students to read a position paper on each focus area by clicking here. All position papers are hosted on Box, requiring a NetID to access. If you do not have a NetID, you will be granted access to these documents at a later date, once all internal university feedback has been collected and incorporated.

Each position paper also contains a link to a short (<2 min.) survey with unique questions relevant to its particular theme. We invite our university community to take the short, topical surveys after reading each paper. Thank you.

This initiative aligns with a more comprehensive strategic planning process, which will guide the future path of our entire university.

Focus Groups

Focus groups ran through the month of October 2022. Watch for more sessions coming in 2023!

Call to Action

READ the position papers and become aware of the important work being undertaken.
OFFER your feedback.
SHARE this strategic planning process with your colleagues so they too may participate.
SUPPORT the plan by being an active ambassador, touting university-wide value-adds.

What’s In It For Me?

None of  this work will happen in a vacuum. With obvious interdependencies, many of the recommendations being brought forward could impact departments beyond Global Engagement, including yours. Obtaining broad-based support will be crucial to ensuring our final plan can be fully achievable.


The Office for Global Engagement would like to acknowledge everyone who has contributed to this cross-functional effort, through our over-arching project committee and/or sub-committee work.
