Strategic Map

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011
John “Robby” Glass ’13, President and Student Delegate to the Board of Trustees

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 students; and

Whereas the Thelomathesian Society supports the vision of St. Lawrence that the Map helps us all to see; and Whereas the Thelomathesian Society expects that student input will be integral in the development of specific goals, objectives, strategies and tactics, including the campus facilities master plan, that create the plans to realize the Map; and Whereas the Thelomathesian Society expects that the Strategic Map will enhance the St. Lawrence student experience;

Therefore be it resolved that the Thelomathesian Society endorses the St. Lawrence University Strategic Map; and

Be it further resolved that the Thelomathesian Society directs the President and the senior staff to work with all Laurentian constituencies, especially students, to begin identifying the resources and processes for its implementation.
