Bridge Plan Update – Feb. 2020
The University of Houston-Downtown’s Bridge Plan Strategic Planning Committee and Work Groups (Student Success, Student Access, Programmatic Advancement, Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities, External Partnerships, & Administration and Infrastructure) are currently analyzing data collected from recent surveys disseminated to University constituents. Likewise, the committee and work groups are identifying objectives for the Bridge Plan.
Next month, the UHD Community can learn more about the Bridge Plan’s progress and continue to weigh in on its development during two scheduled town hall meetings. Meeting schedules are as follows:
March 18 – 11:30 a.m. TDECU Tour Room
March 19 – 4:30 p.m. TDECU Tour Room
These town hall meetings are just some of the opportunities to offer feedback on the Bridge Plan. UHD Community members can also participate in the development of the Bridge Plan by receiving updates and sharing feedback on its website.
Among those who recently shared their insights related to the plan’s development were faculty, staff and students who took time to complete the aforementioned survey. The following stakeholders were selected at random to receive gift cards for participating:
Staff – Keyana Moseley, Ralph Estrada
Faculty – Susan Baker, Judith Quander
Students – Rebecca Vasgoya, Kaylen Sexton
