Faculty at the University College of the North are traveling to all campuses and regional centers. The strategic planning committee is setting up meetings to get public feedback on a new five year plan. Committee member Charlene Lafreniere says a date has been set for launching the 2015 – 2020 plan having approval by their tri-council by November allowing the staff to operationalize that plan and develop action plans over the next six months to implement in June of 2015 which is when they will start the new strategic plan. She adds they’ll also have a roll out communicating the plan before they develop their actions just to share what they’ve heard and what their new plan looks like.
During meetings in Thompson two of the biggest suggestions were better promotion and programming should be included in the new plan.
