Strategic Planning

Luther College faculty, staff, students, administrators, and regents will spend the 2016-17 academic year listening to the insights, ideas, and experiences of members of the campus community in order to create a strategic plan that will determine the goals and priorities of the college for 2018 and beyond.

The strategic planning process draws on the wisdom of the entire Luther College community — students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, and parents. At its core is a broadly representative campus committee, the Strategic Planning Committee, which serves as both a vehicle and a repository for communication with individual groups and with the campus.

The process will engage multiple constituents and provide a variety of opportunities for input and review. The process will be conducted in a transparent and inclusive manner at every stage; balance community-wide input with the vision of the college’s leadership; work within and through established structures and cultures of shared governance; and integrate aspirations and creative designs for the future with the practical fundamentals of educational, pedagogical, administrative, and fiscal feasibility.
