One of the hallmarks of our brand of “Engaged Learning” at CSU is the way we collaborate and work together – faculty, staff and students alike.
When we started conceptualizing “CSU 2.0
” almost a year ago, we engaged all members of our campus community in a thorough and comprehensive process designed to capture the essence of who we are and how we will build upon it to achieve our collective aspirations. We assessed, debated, listened, road-mapped and listened some more. What we learned became part of our blueprint.
This week, 81 percent of our Faculty Senate voted affirmatively on the full CSU 2.0 plan, and a majority of senators voted similarly in support of realigning our colleges as part of the plan.
Now that the voices of our faculty – and our entire campus community – have been heard and incorporated into our vision, we are ready to begin work on implementation.
And your voices will continue to be heard, particularly as we work through the many details involved. You have our continuing commitment to include faculty and staff leaders on our implementation team and in our process, and we will have ample opportunity to work collectively in areas where we need to adjust our course.
Over the next several weeks, we will establish a framework to outline and oversee our implementation plan. Several of our deans and vice presidents, with faculty and staff participation, have already begun discussing how to begin this process as it relates to academic realignment. More details to come on this soon.
We truly appreciate and are grateful for your collective and individual efforts and look forward to advancing our positive momentum in the months and years ahead!
