Portland State slows down a bit over the summer, but work on the University’s new strategic plan will continue.
For the past nine months, the Strategic Plan Development Team has met regularly to home in on the key themes the plan will address. The team has gathered thousands of comments from across campus and has worked with Coraggio Group consultants to determine the main elements of a plan meant to guide PSU for the next five to 10 years.
The work took a big step forward during the Annual Leadership Session earlier this month, when faculty, staff and students gathered for a day of discussions about the plan. The high-energy meeting gave an added boost of momentum to the plan going into the summer break. (To see highlights of the meeting, click on the video above.)
Here are the next steps:
• A seven-member subcommittee of the Strategic Plan Development Team is meeting over the summer to distill all the ideas and campus feedback into a draft plan.
• The full team will review the draft plan in the fall, make necessary changes and put it out for public comment.
• President Wim Wiewel will review a final draft of the plan before offering it the PSU Board of Trustees for approval in December.

President Wiewel's open office hours will resume in October. Have a great summer!
