Comments sought on newest draft of strategic plan

The university is soliciting comments on the newest version of an outline for Cornell's strategic plan.

The second and complete draft of the outline is now available at Please send comments and suggestions to by April 1.

The Strategic Planning Advisory Council (SPAC) revised and expanded the previous version, based on the feedback from the university community over the last six weeks.

The Cornell community can also provide input at a public discussion April 1, 4:45-5:45 p.m., B45 Warren Hall, hosted by Provost Kent Fuchs and Edward Lawler, the SPAC chair and Martin P. Catherwood Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations.

The SPAC aims to complete a final draft of the plan by May.

The strategic plan is part of the university's three-pronged effort to "reimagine Cornell." While the SPAC drafts a plan for the university's vision and goals through 2015, the Initiatives Coordinating Office is implementing administrative reorganization initiatives, and Fuchs is considering recommendations from 20 task forces on ways to strengthen the university's academic enterprise with tighter budgets.
