Strategic Plan Steering Committee

Steering Committee
The Steering Committee's charge was to guide the SPH through the strategic planning process and recommend a strategic plan to the Dean, the School of Public Health Executive Committee, and the Faculty Council for adoption. Members reviewed and made recommendations regarding the planning process; championed the process to School community; and gathered input. The Steering Committee met approximately monthly during the planning process. See member list

An outside consulting firm, BERK, facilitated the Steering Committee meetings and focus groups, interviewed external constituents, and provided guidance for the strategic planning effort.

Alisa Jenny, Special Assistant to the Dean, coordinated the Planning Process. Contact Alisa at:
