Video: Strategy Focus Teams meet to review questions

The College of Veterinary Medicine is in the process of developing a new vision for our future by participating in a comprehensive Strategic Planning initiative. What does the future of veterinary education, animal health, teaching, research and service look like? Where do we need to be? To find the answers to the these questions, the college has surveyed a variety of stakeholders. We had almost 1,000 responses to the stakeholder surveys sent out at the end of May. Thank you to all who responded to the survey. Every single response is valuable and was read by the facilitator.

What's New?

Survey Results have been posted. See the results here.

The Strategy Leadership Team (SLT) reviewed the survey responses in early August, and identified a list of "hot topics." These were then combined and prioritized, resulting in six areas to be analyzed by Strategy Focus Teams. These six priority areas are described here. Then those hot topics were scored and weighted in order to help develop a list of focused questions to be reviewed by several focus teams. 

On Aug. 27, six Strategy Focus Teams, composed of about 10-15 faculty, staff and students each, held their first meetings to review the questions and define boundary conditions (see the video above). The SFTs are meeting Sept. 24 and Oct. 29, and will then create a series of recommendations. Those recommendations will be posted in early November for review and input by other CVM stakeholders.
