Strategic Planning in Higher Education

Take your university or college to the next level with a strategic plan that helps realize your vision.

Successful strategic planning in higher education requires engaging all key stakeholders in a highly collaborative and open process that creates both insight and buy-in to the collective vision, mission, goals and priorities for the institution. We facilitate a process that engenders trust and transparency through thoughtful and frequent communication, authentic engagement, and multiple touch points throughout the process for stakeholder input.

We support universities and colleges with strategic planning by:


Designing a strategic planning approach that fits the distinct needs and goals of the organization


Designing data gathering and engagement strategies that will ensure effective planning outcomes and robust stakeholder engagement


Designing and facilitating stakeholder engagement workshops and activities to allow 360 degree input and feedback


Serving as an objective third party to draw out candid feedback


Partnering with the Strategic Plan governance team to ensure their effective leadership and guidance, from data gathering through draft creation and implementation

Using creative methodologies to draw out the institution’s best and most innovative thinking and ideas

Supporting with project management and execution to develop and implement effective processes
