Strategic Planning

Rowan University

Organizational Structure

The strategic governance of an institution "needs to serve as a vehicle to bring talented people with good ideas from across campus into productive relationships with one another. . . . and to draw upon, encourage, and strategically connect the best educational and administrative practices that are emerging in different parts of the organization" (Morrill, Strategic Leadership, p. 89).

Entities and Functions

The Board of Trustees, President, and President's Cabinet determine the strategic direction of the institution.

The Deans' Council makes decisions about academic priorities. The Deans work with the strategic planning leadership of their Colleges and Departments to define strategies to execute these priorities. The Deans' Council also identifies support needed from the institution's non-academic Divisions. The Strategic Planning Council members work with their respective Divisions to meet these needs and to advance the strategic direction of the institution.

The Strategic Planning Advisory Committee engages the campus community in dialogue about strategic planning and facilitates input into the process.

Institutional Effectiveness, Research, and Planning provides data to support decision-making.
