UHD Bridge Plan Update - Dec. 2019
The University of Houston-Downtown Strategic Planning Committee and Bridge Plan Work Groups (Student Success, Student Access, Programmatic Advancement, Research, Scholarship & Creative Activities, External Partnerships, & Administration and Infrastructure) have been meeting since the end of October to review the current strategic plan and to conduct a GAP analysis from UHD’s Revised Strategic Plan 2015-2020.
The work groups have also discussed new goals and targets for the Bridge Plan and laying a foundation for the next strategic plan.
Looking forward to next semester, the work groups will gather information to develop a “framing story” which may focus on group, program or departmental successes. Each work group will conduct surveys, focus groups and hold town halls to provide faculty/staff/student and external stakeholder input.
