Retrospective on Strategic Action

Strategic Action is designed to provide a philosophical and fiscal framework for the implementation of the Strategic Planning and Thinking that have taken place over the last few years. It is not meant to replace the detailed planning developed at all levels. These plans will continue to be refined and focused, guided by the overarching direction of this Strategic Action plan. The details will continue to be found in unit plans in place at various levels of the University.
