At Georgia Southern University, strategic planning is the process by which the institution sets its vision, defines its mission, and articulates a strategy for achieving these goals consistent with the values of the institution. Key among these values are transparency and inclusiveness in the planning process.
Periodically, the University's leadership convenes to discuss and develop action items that advance the University's vision and goals. The deans and department chairs share these action steps with faculty, staff, and students for review and comment. Study teams are formed and charged with moving specific action items forward. These teams consist of faculty, staff, and, where appropriate, students. All constituencies are welcome and encouraged to participate in the University's planning process.
