July / August 2013 - Town Hall Meetings
Email: July 23, 2013
I am pleased to submit to you the attached review draft of the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan. The release of this draft to the campus community marks yet another milestone toward the conclusion of our next strategic plan.
The Vice Presidents, UPC co-chairs Donna Savage and Javier Garza, and I will serve as panel members during these meetings and we look forward to hosting you. The discussions will provide members of the Tarleton family an opportunity to ask questions about and provide final input on the 2015-2020 strategic plan. If you cannot
attend one of the sessions next week, you are welcome to send comments to Donna or Javier by Friday, August 2nd.
In June, the Executive Cabinet met to conduct a final review of the objectives and strategies provided by
the UPC and Council of Chairs. Since that time, the Executive Cabinet has identified "Strategy Leaders" to review the plan and to make suggestions for measurements for each strategy.
Again, I would like to thank all of you who have dedicated time and effort to this process, especially Donna and Javier. This plan is special for many reasons, but most importantly because it has been developed in such an organic manner with input from across the university community.
F. Dominic Dottavio, Ph.D.
