A New Chapter: CALS Strategic Plan 2013
Date posted on CALS News Center: December 20, 2012, updated January and February 2013
Dean Richard Linton leads the CALS strategic plan steering committee.
What will the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences look like in 10, 25, 50 years? This strategic planning initiative is designed to sketch a path to the future for the College. Through a series of listening sessions and other interactions with faculty, staff, students, friends and stakeholders, we hope to develop a picture of where the College is today along with a vision for where we want to be in the future.
We intend for this process to be inclusive and transparent. This web page is designed to keep you up-to-date about what’s going on with the initiative, and it will serve as an archive for what’s been accomplished so far. We plan to update the page frequently, so please check back and help us chart a path to the future.
