The broad goal of the “listening sessions” is the give every Cameron University stakeholder the opportunity to provide her or his perspectives on the state of Cameron University.  This information will help inform and prepare for the process of developing a new strategic plan.  The listening sessions are a part of the pre-planning phase.  It will engage constituencies across the campus and reach out beyond our campus for community input, in preparation for the formal PLAN 2023 strategic plan development during the summer and fall of 2017. Listening sessions will be held during the Spring semester of 2017.  These meetings will each take 1-2 hours and be interactive, offering an opportunity for everyone to give his or her view.  In addition, an online survey will be launched in Spring semester of 2017 that will complement the listening sessions and provide an additional course of information for the strategic planning process.  Your attendance at a listening session will be very much appreciated.  Your unique views on the future direction of Cameron University are critical to the development of a clear and holistic strategic plan that reflects the challenges and opportunities the university faces and gives firm direction from the future.


The key objectives of the listening tour are to:

  1. Give an overview of the planning process itself, including the timeframe and how to contribute.
  2. Ascertain which parts of PLAN 2018 remain relevant and should be carried forward.
  3. Determine what really matters to you as we begin the next strategic planning process.
  4. Gain ideas for suggested new and relevant Cameron University strategic goals and measures (where possible).
