Whereas the Laurentian community of faculty, staff, students, trustees and alumni have collaborated to craft a Strategic Map for St. Lawrence’s future; and
Whereas the Strategic Map has been shaped by discussions among these constituents, beginning June 2009 as St. Lawrence welcomed a new president and faced the effects of a serious recession, continuing through the academic years 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 with task groups of faculty and staff who addressed financial challenges and suggested expense reductions and revenue enhancement ideas; and
Whereas the Strategic Map titled “The St. Lawrence Promise: A Lifelong Experience of Thoughtfulness” has been shared widely on campus, with trustees and with alumni leaders, and has benefitted from the wisdom and advice of those who care about the University; and
Whereas the Board of Trustees supports the process in which the Strategic Map was developed and the vision of St. Lawrence that the Map helps us all to see; and
Whereas the Board of Trustees expects that all constituencies of St. Lawrence University will be integrally involved with the development of specific goals, objectives, strategies and tactics that create the plans to realize the Map;
Therefore be it resolved that the Board of Trustees endorses the St. Lawrence University Strategic Map; and Be it further resolved that the Board of Trustees directs the President and the senior staff to work with all Laurentian constituencies to begin identifying the resources and processes for its implementation.
