|Access To Excellence gathered input from hundreds of people on campus.|
The final report regarding Access to Excellence held on March 2, is available online for the campus community.
Throughout the daylong event, upwards of 1,000 people gave their input regarding the direction the university should be headed in the next 10 years.
The California State University Board of Trustees required each of the 23 campuses to partake in the large-scale brainstorming session to identify strategic priorities to meet the challenges facing the CSU and the individual campuses. Access to Excellence is intended to provide an additional basis for initiatives needed to ensure access and excellence into the future.
The purpose of beginning the process at the campus level is to ensure that the next CSU strategic plan will be broadly inclusive, involving dialogue among – and outreach to – the multiple constituencies that define the CSU and its mission.
A system-wide summit will be held in the coming weeks to review feedback from the campus conversations prior to the development of a draft plan. Following internal consultation and revisions, the draft plan will be the basis for a series of public convocations this fall targeting key external stakeholder groups, including public policy audiences.
The system-wide final plan will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for approval in May 2008.
