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
