Strategic Planning

The strategic plan and process

The strategic planning process charting our school’s future from 2024-2029 is underway. 

A 10-person Steering Committee representing the school's three campuses as well as its diverse disciplines and programs has been formed and will meet regularly throughout the strategic plan creation. This process includes:

Phase 1 (November 2023 - February 2024): Identity Formation. We will crystallize our vision, mission, and core values through a comprehensive survey and collaborative workshops.

Phase 2 (February - August, 2024) : Strategic Planning. We will set our goals, formulate strategies, develop action plans, allocate resources, and initiate executive coaching for our leadership and strategy champions. Meetings have been planned with faculty, staff, students, community partners, peer institutions and more. 

Phase 3 (Fall 2024): Execution & Sustained Coaching Support. We will ensure the successful implementation of the strategic plan through ongoing coaching, monitoring, evaluation, and feedback loops. The new mission and vision for ColoradoSPH will be announced in March.
