Strategic Planning: The 6-Month Update
When you think about 2035, you might see a world where a trip to the International Space Station is a reality for most middle class Americans and there are cures for common cancers. The goal of Designing the Future: A Strategic Vision and Plan is to get everyone across campus thinking about what the world — and specifically, Georgia Tech — will look like in 25 years. Sure, we’re only about six months into the plan, but members of the Tech community have already been busy implementing the ten institutional initiatives introduced with the kick-off of the plan, developing new initiatives and taking action. For example, leaders from academic and research units across campus came together in December for a strategic planning implementation retreat. About 120 white papers were submitted by the colleges, research units and academic support units for discussion and consideration. This article officially kicks off The Whistle’s coverage of strategic plan implementation on campus. We’ve featured eight ideas that have been initiated or are being considered for implementation by Institute leadership. Given we are only months into a 25-year plan, some of these ideas are still in the discussion and conceptual stages. With each idea, we’ve provided the basic details and what the main participating units are or might be. Most importantly, we’ve highlighted the strategic goal(s) to which the idea corresponds. In case you need a refresher, the strategic goals outlined in the plan are:
- Goal 1: Be among the most highly respected technology-focused institutions in the world.
- Goal 2: Sustain and enhance excellence in scholarship and research.
- Goal 3: Ensure that innovation, entrepreneurship and public service are fundamental characteristics of our graduates.
- Goal 4: Expand our global footprint and influence to ensure that we are graduating good global citizens.
- Goal 5: Relentlessly pursue institutional effectiveness.
