Kent State President Launches Forums to Provide Updates on Strategic Visioning Initiative
Kent State University President Beverly Warren is launching a new series of town hall meetings to update the university community on the Strategic Visioning Initiatives and the One University Commission.
The Forums for the Future events, which began Sept. 10 at Kent State University at Tuscarawas, continue with the first Kent Campus forums for faculty and staff on Sept. 24 at 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Ballroom Balcony. Forums will take place at all eight Kent State campuses and include sessions aimed at faculty, staff and students. Members of the Kent State community can watch their email for additional forum opportunities.
“We are at a defining moment in our history,” Warren said. “With such positive momentum generated in recent years, now is the time to build a bold vision for our best future. The forum series will provide an opportunity to share ideas and will help to create a strategic roadmap for our greatest success.”
Warren will begin each forum with a presentation that includes plans for creating a distinctive Kent State. Audience members will then have an opportunity to ask questions.
In March, Warren formed a Strategic Vision Advisory Committee to help guide the work to shape a vision, core values and university priorities.
