The Colorado School of Public Health Strategic Planning Process that will chart our school’s future for the coming five years is now underway.
A 12-person Steering Committee representing the school's three campuses, its diverse disciplines and programs, and its faculty, staff, and students was formed and meets regularly throughout the strategic planning process. Thus far, this process has included:
1) the development of an overall and accepted plan by the Steering Committee
2) implementation of working groups with foci determined by the Steering Committee through an open process
3) development of reports by the groups for communication to the school and revision after feedback
4) agreement on the final report and its recommendations
Groups external to the school, e.g., the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, were asked to provide input and representation may be sought for the Steering Committee.
