In June, the State Board of Higher Education conducted a strategic planning retreat to help build upon the existing framework and pave the way forward for the future of higher education. Board members, presidents and university system staff looked at challenges, opportunities and creative ways forward to make an impact on the students that higher education serves.
There were four new Board members participating this year and incoming Chancellor Hagerott also had new perspectives to add to the conversation. The strategic plan remains a plan in process as input is gathered from across the state to ensure all perspectives are heard, listened to and captured within the document.
“We are in this together,” said Hagerott. The video from the retreat captures the highlights and interweaves the thoughts and themes of the existing strategic plan.
