UNIVERSITY OF Illinois President Dr. Timothy Killeen is leading the 2015 University-wide strategic planning initiative, a process that will chart the institution's path to the future for its campuses.
DR. KILLEEN called the strategic plan a roadmap for the University's future. He expects the plan to touch every aspect of the institution's operations. The plan will be "rooted in evidence and guided by experience," he said. The planning process is a team effort involving all of the U of I's stakeholders, including Academic Professionals and other employees.
DR. KILLEEN was directed by the University of Illinois trustees in March 2015 to begin the strategic planning process, which is expected to take 12-18 months.
THERE WILL be a Town Hall meeting about the process on Monday, Nov. 30, from 3-5 p.m. in Student Center East, Room A.
SEVERAL INDIVIDUALS from UIC are on the President’s Strategic Planning Steering Committee, including Chancellor Michael Amiridis; Student Trustee Jauwan Hall; Dr. Barbara Henley, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs; Mark Murphy, Chair, University Employee Advisory Committee; Dr. Sara Rusch, Regional Dean, College of Medicine, Peoria, Chicago campus; and Deon Thomas, Assistant Coach, UIC men’s basketball. Michael Bohlmann, Assistant Dean of Technology and Chair of the University Professional Personnel Advisory Committee (UPPAC) from the Urbana-Champaign campus, represents Academic Professionals.
THE PLANNING committee welcomes employee input and suggestions, noting that “your participation in the planning process is vital to the development of a plan that represents the range of perspectives on our campuses and in our communities.”
