Strategic Planning

In 2009 Dean Tom Venner appointed the CAS Strategic Planning Committee, formed of representatives of all CAS stakeholders. The committee identified short and long-term strategic goals for the College, aligned these goals with the university's strategic goals, and developed an implementation plan.

The Committee's objectives were:

  • address the challenges presented to us by the current volatile economic situation
  • clarify the direction in which the College is moving
  • define how we want to look in 5-10-20 years

The College's Plan has five strategic areas, with objectives associated with each area:
I. Teaching and Learning-Programming
II. Scholarly Research and Creative Activities
III. Student Experiences and Successes
IV. Improve CAS Identity
V. CAS Adaptability
