Strategic Planning and Project Planning - Center for Organizational Leadership Skip to main content

Our Center offers a modular approach to strategic planning that allows units and departments to systematically clarify their mission, vision, and values, and establish measurable goals and action plans. We also assist units in translating their academic and administrative unit missions, future aspirations, and priorities into project plans.

Our strategic planning in higher education framework addresses any of the following areas, focusing specifically on the themes of Leadership, Communication, Assessment, Culture, Mission, and Follow-Through:

  • Mission, Vision, and Values
  • Stakeholder Perspectives
  • Environmental Scan and Benchmarking
  • Themes/Goals
  • Strategies, Priorities, and Action Plans
  • Plan Creation/Implementation
  • Outcomes and Achievements

We have assisted over 100 academic and administrative units in their planning efforts, including recent work with the following areas:

  • Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences
  • Rutgers Global
  • School of Graduate Studies
  • Department of Landscape Architecture
  • Innovation Ventures
  • Division of Continuing Studies-Media Services
  • Rutgers-Camden Division of Student Academic Success
  • Addiction and Opioid Abuse Task Force
  • Institute for Health, Health Policy, and Aging Research
  • Rutgers Global Health Institute
