Academic Years 2012–2020
Approved by the Hunter College Senate on April 27, 2011
Hunter College‘s strategic planning process does not end with formal adoption of a plan. No plan can resolve all of the challenges and tensions that we face as we pursue several very worthy goals. The model we have chosen to embrace—the university that defines itself in terms of student success at a high level, important scholarship and creative activity, and dedicated public service—sets Hunter College apart. At the same time, to realize this model we must continue to engage in identifying possibilities, testing and evaluating them and examining the interplay of complex, interwoven elements.
To facilitate prompt implementation of the plan, we have appended the four task force reports that include numerous possible actions the Hunter community may wish to consider. As part of the follow-up process, various assessment measures should be designed promptly so we will be able to evaluate progress toward meeting our strategic goals. Progress reports, including assessment outcomes, should be presented to the Hunter College Senate periodically over the life of the plan. Further, this is a plan for the entire institution, and our component schools and units should also engage in planning processes appropriate to their particular roles and missions.
