The workshop concluded with a short address from the Chancellor who summarized the next steps for the planning process that included:

1. The Strategic Objectives Workshop itself;
2. Strategic objectives’ review and analysis process, making sense of all the findings presented, and the strategic ideas proposed;
3. Developing the university level strategic objectives, actions, and initiatives;
4. Pre-General Assembly PTF – where these would further be presented before the PTF, and upon approval would be presented to the General Assembly;
5. The General Assembly;
6. Post-General Assembly PTF reflections to further discuss the first draft and receive feedback;
7. First Draft of the plan to be shared with the PTF for review;
8. PTF review of the first draft;
9. Final feedbacks to be incorporated into the draft, and development of Strategic Plan; and
10. The launch of the plan to be held in late February/early March.

The next step is for the PTF to review the results and fine-tune these objectives. The University has made great strides in the past several years in not only identifying, but acting on its strategic goals. Much has been accomplished but more challenges and successes lay ahead as we summarize the challenges of progress towards our vision and mission…
