Stetson University

University Planning

In 2013-14, the Stetson community will engage in the development of a new Strategic Map. Pertinent strategic planning documents will continue to be posted in this space throughout the year, so please check back often for information updates and new resources.

"Seeing Stetson In Context" Open Discussions

It's a time to think big, toss ideas around, examine major trends in higher education and assess the opportunities that lie before us. Plan to attend any of these one-hour discussions. Take a look at the Resources page on this website and bring your own material for conversation!

Online Survey

In October, we'll launch a short, anonymous, open-ended survey that asks the Stetson community for their thoughts on Stetson's strengths, critical issues we face, and key priorities we should establish. Your input is important and will help shape our 2014-19 Strategic Map.
