Bringing the plan to life
Implementing a 10-year strategic plan is an exciting process. It takes the collective energy of many people, working simultaneously on dozens of projects that move forward at a variety of paces.
Where to start?
First, we grouped our vision into 10 strategic “clusters”—like Designing and Developing Knowledge, DU and the Public Good, and Sustainable DU—and appointed leaders for each one. Under each cluster, small working groups that are charged with consulting broadly and, well, getting the work done.
The working groups articulate and research ideas. They gather input and feedback from stakeholders. They think critically and practically about how to turn those ideas into reality. Ultimately, their best ideas will be prioritized, budgeted for and funded.
