McCarthy discusses ‘strategic planning’ in second town hall
Today, as the start of Fenway Park’s 100th season has begun, Suffolk President James McCarthy announced the kickoff of the university’s strategic planning process at his monthly town hall meeting, which took place in the C. Walsh Theater.
With a packed room and at least 200 viewers watching on a Livestream.com feed, McCarthy presented the current state of the process, the members chosen for committee, as well as possible goals the committee could set for the university’s future. As the room quieted, McCarthy took to the stage in front of a screen displaying a PowerPoint presentation which read “Strategic Plan 2012-2017. Launch: April 5, 2012.”
The university is currently in the process of accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) which makes the strategic planning process critical. The data will be utilized to, according to a letter by McCarthy posted online, “inform the various NEASC committees, we will make sure to intentionally coordinate our efforts at critical milestones.”
The president’s presentation continued with the announcement of the committee co-chairs—
