Valdosta State University embarked on an aggressive strategic planning initiative entitled “Strategic Focus.” Faculty, staff, and students have participated in developing standards that will advance VSU. Strategic Focus 2013 allows VSU to ask the questions:
- “What can we do to attract new students who would otherwise not apply?”
- “What can we do to keep students at VSU who would otherwise leave?”
- “How can we enhance VSU’s reputation as a community of scholars?”
Strategic Focus has become part of our annual planning cycle, which includes review and evaluation of proposals. This annual review solicits new initiatives, measures the effectiveness of previously funded initiatives (in future years), and selects initiatives for the coming academic year. The Strategic Focus annual process places emphasis on the importance of this strategic planning effort as a continuing practice at VSU.
The strategic planning activity, referred to as “Strategic Focus,” literally defines those enhancements to academic life at VSU that have the potential to grow VSU into premier residential university with a national reputation.
