Macaulay Honors College announces the launch of a new strategic planning initiative.

During the 2017-2018 academic year Macaulay Honors College  will develop a new strategic plan that establishes clear goals to guide the college into the future. The plan will help us define our vision and ensure our longterm capacity as the honors college of the City University of New York.

“We will develop a strategic framework that builds upon the strengths of Macaulay, our partner campuses, and CUNY,” said Dean Mary C. Pearl. “We will also design a process of inclusive, continuous planning to ensure that we are aware of our environment and responsive to any challenges and opportunities that arise.”

The initiative will culminate in the early fall of the 2018-2019 academic year with the release of a strategic plan.

The strategic planning process is intended to be a process with input from all college  stakeholders:

  • faculty
  • students
  • staff
  • alumni
  • Foundation Board members
  • Advisory Board members
  • other supporters

The process provides an opportunity for stakeholders to work together to evaluate Macaulay’s mission, values and priorities.

Participants will be able to access up-to-date information about the plan’s formation and have opportunities to provide input based on their unique relationships to the college.

To guide the plan’s development, Dean Pearl has established a committee of faculty, administrators, staff, alumni and students. The committee’s first milestone has been to create an online portal that tracks the college’s progress and provides mechanisms for ongoing feedback from the community. (Photo: Anthony Delanoix)
