Under the leadership of President Paul R. Brown, PhD, Monmouth University is commencing a comprehensive, inclusive, and transparent strategic planning process that will establish a path for programmatic, athletic, facility, and general funding priorities as we strive to achieve new heights of excellence.
The entire strategic planning process is informed by the University’s mission and core values. It is also informed by our collective privilege and obligation to help our students to unearth their intellectual passions in an environment that embraces their varied cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs.
Our collective journey will help establish benchmarks for what constitutes the best personalized learning experiences and outcomes for our students, tempered by the understanding that the real value of an education isn’t measured solely by objective benchmarks.
Each student who arrives on our campus richly deserves to understand and experience the unique opportunities that make a Monmouth University education personally relevant. Initially, three key themes were identified to guide the planning process: personalized learning experience, program relevance, and global and cultural awareness. After input from the campus community, a fourth theme has been added, a community of teaching, scholarship and collaboration. These themes can translate differently across different areas of campus, and even across different universities.
An overarching goal for the strategic planning process is to determine the optimal portfolio of graduate and undergraduate programs that will prepare our students for “life after Monmouth,” setting a foundation for both continuing intellectual development and economic advancement, by aligning our resources to provide the best match for what we have to offer them. This is a collective and holistic effort by everyone on campus.
Strategic thinking that encompasses the entire community will help us formalize a strong and comprehensive vision that will set our priorities in the years to come. All members of the campus community will be engaged in this important task.
In the fall of 2014 President Brown will submit to the Board of Trustees a strategic plan that has been endorsed by the campus community and expresses a clear vision and strategy for Monmouth’s future, reflecting the input of faculty, administrators, staff, students, alumni, and other stakeholders.
