2018-2019 Strategic Plan

  • In Fall 2017, Vice President for Administration and Finance, Josee Larochelle identified the need for a new division-wide strategic plan.
  • To gather information for this plan, a Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) Analysis was conducted in October and November 2017.
  • Results of this analysis identified four strategic directions to improve the division:
    • Communication
    • Efficiencies through technology, space utilization, and use of facilities
    • Morale and Teambuilding
    • Retention and Development of Current Employees
  • A strategic planning retreat was held in February 2018 involving representation from all administration and finance departments. At this retreat, new mission, vision, and values were crafted; teams were identified to review the four areas above; and preliminary work plans were developed.
