UAlbany Strategic Planning

During the academic year 2016‐17, the University at Albany will be developing its next strategic plan. Provost James Stellar and Chief of Staff Leanne Wirkkula are co‐leading this initiative.

The university community will have many opportunities to contribute their ideas. During the fall semester, teams will develop a number of futuring papers on key topics. There will also be a university‐wide meeting to engage a large number of people in generating many ideas.

The planning effort will be open, inclusive and transparent. A small steering committee of faculty and staff has been established to guide the process.

The university will use design thinking – an innovative approach that first generates many possibilities, then thoughtfully narrows them down to ultimately create our guiding strategic framework. This site is a resource for all members of the university to keep informed about the strategic planning initiative. It will be updated over the course of the year.
