In 2017, Ohio University’s Division of Student Affairs embarked on a strategic planning process that will help to maximize the support services provided to Ohio University students. By identifying a common vision and mission, division leadership seeks to unite staff, highlight its collective strength and promote a culture of care—care for students and for one another.
The division is committed to engaging with a broad range of students, faculty, staff and community partners to prioritize the needs of OHIO students and redefine the scope of student services at Ohio University. In an effort to foster collective ownership of the end product, the division aims to engender meaningful participation by all division employees in the planning process.
The division’s 15 month strategic planning process will culminate in March 2018, with the plan’s publication. Not only will the final plan determine the work that the division undertakes in the future, it will also help division employees realize their impact and their potential as student affairs professionals.
