Strategic Thinking and Acting

Object of Desire: to better integrate the professional development planning (PDP), budgeting, and strategic planning processes within the division.


  • Work with Faculty Leads to identify specific HSS strategic goals for the next year
  • Use these strategic goals as a way of framing faculty discussions of their individual PDPs
  • Engage the budgeting process earlier, and consciously tie discussions of our budget priorities with division strategic goals and PDPs


  • Collect division strategic plan, faculty PDPs, and budget at the end of the year, and analyze the degree to which alignment efforts have actually been successful
