Following the spring semester's intensive creation and dialogue about the major themes, the steering committee incorporates feedback into the plan. The Board of Trustees also holds a retreat to explore the plan in detail. Toward the end of June, the steering committee moves toward final or near-final refinements of all plan components: the vision, mission, values, goals, and objectives.
The steering committee focuses its efforts on final revisions, and the plan is prepared for its official release.
In September, a campus-wide event celebrates the completion of the plan and marks the kickoff of implementation efforts.
The implementation plan is presented to the Board of Trustees during their October meeting.
