The Strategic Planning Committee is making progress in the College’s strategic planning effort, thanks to the active participation of many of you over the past few months. The framework is based on interviews with the UW Environment community, which lays out a set of working goals and elements of a vision for the College. Please read the draft framework and offer any feedback you have via our questionnaire.

Town Hall

On November 14, 2022 College of the Environment leadership held a Town Hall to gather community feedback on the initial draft Strategic Planning Framework developed by the Strategic Planning Committee. Leadership offered insight into why a plan is needed, how it will be used and shared the emerging vision, mission and four strategic priorities. Attendees asked questions and offered feedback on the draft plan.
