Strategic Visioning Process

In the next few months, we will work to develop a vision and plan for the future of Rutgers University-Newark. The process will be democratic and participatory, with the hope for a productive discussion of ways to build on our excellence as a research university and leader in higher education for the 21st century.

Here is how you can participate:

Listening Tour:
The Listening Tour is being conducted in coordination with the leaders of schools and colleges, academic and instructional units, centers and institutes, student leaders and organizations, and other divisions of the university, with those leaders helping schedule and frame the context for listening sessions. Sessions are occurring now through March and run 90 minutes, with multiple sessions being scheduled to accommodate larger audiences and every attempt being made to schedule sessions during the university’s free (non-class) periods.

Charrette Groups:
The concept comes from the design disciplines:bring a small, diverse group together over a series of meetings to:

  • Define Challenges
  • Propose means to address them.
