In 2019, the Strategic Planning Steering Committee was formed with 32 members representing students, faculty, staff, and administration. The committee held strategic planning kickoff events in September with the purpose of identifying initial strategic priorities for the campus. Far exceeding planned expectations, nearly 4,000 individuals (including our alumni) participated in the kickoff events and online participation options. The input we received was documented and analyzed by our external consultants from Emeritus Consulting Group and AASCU-Penson Center for Professional Development.
Informed by these results and contextual factors (e.g., performance data, rankings information, ongoing public feedback), the committee has produced a draft of five proposed strategic priorities, marking an important point in its year-long process to develop a strategic plan to chart SDSU’s future for the next five years and beyond.
As part of the ongoing process, campus and other community members are encouraged to visit the Strategic Planning website for the most up to date information.
