New Horizons: 2020-2025 Strategic Plan
Presents aren’t the only thing being unwrapped this holiday season.
Assessment & Strategic Planning unveiled its 2020-2025 Strategic Plan at the Student Affairs Fall Summit on Dec. 4.
The plan focuses on several initiatives to guide Student Affairs, encompassing themes of Student Affairs’ core values, missions & vision statements and the Auburn Creed.
The first goal states that Student Affairs will work to create a welcoming environment and inclusive community. This will be accomplished through creating, expanding and supporting programs and initiatives that engage students and promote a welcoming and inclusive environment.
The second goal is to provide professional development through meaningful engagement. This can be done by engaging students in growth-oriented experiential learning and creating and enhancing collaborate programs and services that prepare students to lead.
The third goal focuses on health, wellness and safety. These goals will be promoted through a holistic, data-informed approach that focuses on prevention, education, care, support and intervention. Student Affairs will implement staff training and compliance to create a safe learning and living environment for students.
The fourth and final goal is to achieve organizational excellence. This will be accomplished through fostering a data-informed and outcome-driven culture, providing excellent service to enhance the student experience and managing budgets, technology, marketing and human resources to operate with responsiveness, efficiency and effectiveness.
Director of Assessment & Strategic Planning Abby Langham oversaw the project from start to finish. Langham says her favorite part of the project was seeing everyone’s ideas culminate into tangible ideas and piecing it all together.
“I wanted our staff to feel like they really ‘own’ this plan, and that it’s something that they really created, because it is,” Langham says. “It’s something that’s going to expand and enhance the already great Auburn student experience. As an Auburn alum, it feels good to produce something that’s going to have a lasting impact.”
