Shepherd University is at a crossroads moment. It is a moment filled with potential, where anything is possible. It is a moment resulting from the wisdom and hard work of those crafting Shepherd's future in the past decades--the faculty, the classified and non-classified employees, and the administrative teams who have made good decisions, working steadily toward the stability Shepherd enjoys today. It is now up to us to make the most of this moment.
Valuable groundwork has been laid by those who contributed to the strategic planning process, ongoing over the past two years. The members of the Strategic Planning Committee have invested a great deal of time and effort into this process, for which we all are grateful. Please note the names of the committee members on their report of the proposed strategic priorities listed on the following pages.
All of the hopes and dreams of those crafting this plan are now evident and organized. It is time for us to review together those dreams and create from them the vision for our future. How can we do this, with all the input and good thinking the campus community can offer?
1. Create strategies to fund the strategic plan.
2. Study the document.
3. Contribute to finalizing the plan and its funding strategies.
In March, the Strategic Planning Committee will review all input from these important discussions and finalize the Strategic Plan. On April 16th, the Strategic Plan will be presented to the Board of Governors in a public session for discussion and approval.
You have made Shepherd what it is today--a strong and stable university poised for great new directions. Thank you for continuing to contribute to Shepherd's future vision through your engagement in this important crossroads moment.
