Board Unanimously Endorses Strategic Plan
November 05, 2012
The Lewis & Clark Board of Trustees has unanimously endorsed the College’s new strategic plan, capping a nearly two-year planning process and setting in motion a series of actions to implement this blueprint for the future.
With the Board’s enthusiastic endorsement of The Journey Forward: A Lewis & Clark Strategic Plan for 2020, the College now has an operative vision and framework for action. The plan emphasizes international and environmental education and experience and concerted efforts to enhance the institution’s visibility, reputation, and financial support—all toward making Lewis & Clark the destination college for students seeking this kind of innovative education in undergraduate liberal arts, or in graduate programs in law, teaching, and counseling. (For details on the process and a complete draft of the plan, visit the strategic planning website.)
Rob Kugler, professor of religious studies and director of strategic initiatives, will convene a new strategic planning council to oversee the implementation of the plan. Kugler has led the strategic planning process to this point and presented the plan to the Board at the October 27 meeting.
“We now have an exciting vision for Lewis & Clark in 2020 and beyond, and a blueprint for the concrete actions that will make that vision a reality,” President Barry Glassner said. “Our strategic plan invites every member of the Lewis & Clark community— students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and friends of the College—to help bring this vision to reality. I’m grateful to the many dozens of Pioneers who contributed their time and knowledge in the planning process.”
