Strategic planning campus town halls Sept. 15, 18

The Strategic Planning Steering Committee is pleased to announce a strategic planning framework and a process for the first phase of campus input and participation toward accelerating Boise State’s rise as a transformative university.

The strategic planning framework offers a vision and goals derived from the original “goalposts” that Dr. Marlene Tromp identified after studying the university during her candidacy and after her year-long listening tour with both the Boise State community and external stakeholders (See Dr. Tromp’s May 1 campus communication on strategic planning). The framework will guide campus discussion and contribution as together we shape the next chapter of Boise State’s evolution as a university.

There will be multiple opportunities for the campus community to engage in the planning process. The first campus-wide opportunities will be two town halls conducted via Zoom from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Sept. 15 and Sept. 18. The town halls will focus on the overall context and process for the strategic planning process and allow time for question and answer. If demand exceeds the capacity of these town halls (Boise State’s Zoom license limits us to 300 participants), more opportunities will be offered. Next week, the Boise State campus community will receive information about how to access the Zoom links for the town halls.

These goals will accelerate Boise State’s rise as a transformative university preparing people for a changing world and advancing innovation for Idaho, student success, and for global impact.
