Strategic planning and involvement are central to the overall operations of the institution (8C1, Figure
O.2). This Systems Portfolio begins each section by listing the strategic goals and objectives. Processes are described in 8P1. Western’s Board approves the Strategic Plan and receives annual progress reports on the strategic planning implementation.
A Steering Committee guides the strategic planning of the institution and communicates through committees, sub-committees, and a web page on the institution’s intranet (Category
