Strategic Planning Process


To the Cedar Crest community:

This fall, under new leadership and with renewed energy and optimism for the future, the campus community will launch a major planning project: the development, writing and implementation of a Strategic Plan.

Strategic Planning is, first and foremost, an inclusive, open, interactive process. There will be opportunities at multiple points for students, alumnae, trustees, faculty and staff to shape each part of our planning. There will be special time set aside at Board meetings, faculty meetings and Student Government meetings; Information Sessions and focus groups of alumnae, staff and students; and special January Summits at the beginning of the Spring Semester. It is essential that everyone is fully engaged during the entire process. Click on the Campus Involvement link at the left for more information about how each group can contribute.

This website will keep the community updated and provide the opportunity for everyone to participate in the planning process at an individual level using the special email address below. Links to all documents, including Cedar Crest’s new Mission Statement and Vision Statement, will enable you to see each new piece of the Strategic Planning process as it unfolds. We hope that you will visit this page frequently and, most importantly, that you will contribute your feedback and ideas.

With the President, I would like to invite you to participate in our Strategic Planning process, whether it be from within our walls or from across the country. The comments you make from your unique Cedar Crest experience and perspective will help us shape a Strategic Plan that builds a firm foundation for the College to thrive in the next decade and beyond.
