PURPOSE AND PROCESS
In the fall of 2010 a steering committee of 12 Fredonia stakeholders was charged by President Hefner with leading the campus in developing a five-year strategic plan that would provide direction and focus for the university. The 2011-2016 plan, “The Power of Fredonia,” builds upon the successful completion of the 2006 “Fredonia Plan” and links the work at SUNY Fredonia with the state-wide strategic plan, “The Power of SUNY.” Specifically, the committee was dedicated to developing a process that was both inclusive and collaborative. The result is a document that took into consideration the input of hundreds of people and centered its twenty action items around five emergent themes—all with the singular goal of making SUNY Fredonia an even better university.
This toolkit is a set of exercises to prompt ideas and discussion about the future of SUNY Fredonia in the next five years. Any group associated with the campus--student groups, departments, alumni, staff, divisions, community members--is invited to be part of this process. If you're a leader of a group or want to organize a group for this purpose, you're welcome to choose an exercise and submit your ideas.
