2P1 Determining Other Distinctive Objectives
Western’s distinctive objectives were identified through strategic planning and implementation processes that involved more than 400 students, faculty, staff, administrators, Western’s Board of Governors, and other influential members within Western’s immediate community (O1). Strategic planning involved open forums and committees for seven focus areas and structured implementation sharing and reports, culminating in an
Annual Progress Report on the Strategic Plan (8C1, 8C2, 8P1).
Student Engagement includes representatives from the faculty, admissions, financial aid, academic and student affairs, deans, the honors program, marketing/pubic relations, residential life, the business office, student body, vice-presidents, and the Provost.
Communicating Quality involves the campus and surrounding community, with more than 100 individuals actively involved in creating and implementing the Communicating Quality plan. The creation of departmental brochures, alumni posters, and web pages brought this project to every department on campus.
The Banner Gold project, crafted by the Technology Management Team (TMT), includes campus-wide involvement and impacts every functional unit.
