Meetings to discuss the strategic planning process are being scheduled with more than 70 university constituent groups. Check the calendar on the Announcements page of the website to see what’s coming up. 

During the past week, members of the strategic planning team met, for example, with Newark City Council, HAVEN--UD’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Registered Student Organization, and the Academic Financial Group. Issues voiced by these groups ranged from the need for better internal communications at UD and the need to build in performance goals to the strategic planning process, to the desire for a bricks-and-mortar site with offices dedicated to the LGBTQ community—a single point for advocacy, assistance and guidance.
