Leadership Structure for System Strategic Planning Implementation

WSU’s first-ever system strategic plan was developed through a participatory and inclusive process that involved regents, administrators, faculty, staff, students, and community members statewide. The plan reflects the input of the entire university community who engaged in meetings, retreats, listening and dialog sessions, and systemwide conferences.

Continued engagement and involvement, both internally and externally, will be essential to the success of the plan’s implementation. A compendium of committees, institutional leaders, shared governance groups, and university stakeholders will continue to be involved and play important roles throughout the implementation process.

The WSU System Council and the System Strategic Planning Implementation Team will provide direct oversight and management of the system strategic plan and related system initiatives. The System Strategic Planners Council will focus on facilitating efficient and effective planning processes systemwide.
