UVA Board of Visitors Starts Strategic Planning Process

Posted: Updated:

Long-term planning for the University of Virginia was center-stage in the attempted ouster of President Teresa Sullivan in June, and Friday the roadmap for the school's strategic planning process was laid out for some of the board of visitors.

The Special Committee on Strategic Planning provided a progress report that included information gathered from work group meetings over the last few months. Twenty priorities were on the table Friday, but in the end that number will drop significantly.

"For a plan for about five years in the future I think we'll have to boil them down to about five big ideas or priorities, admittedly with sub-priorities," President Sullivan said. "We will also need to add our aspirations and talk about intellectual direction. We will need to add specific tactics for how you meet each strategy and metrics to see whether we have succeeded."

The planning process will continue through the spring. Sullivan hopes to have the plan finalized when fall classes begin.
