As part of a University-wide initiative, all WVU colleges and schools were asked to develop their own five-year strategic plans in alignment with the University’s 2010 strategic plan.
The School of Journalism worked on its plan during the 2007-2008 academic year to help set priorities for the School in the areas of enrollment, curriculum and faculty development and retention.
Efforts began in early Fall 2007 with an all-day faculty retreat led by a professional facilitator, during which the School’s overall mission, vision and goals were established. SOJ administration continued to work with faculty in smaller group sessions to develop the measurable objectives and action steps.
Dean Maryanne Reed presented a draft of the SOJ’s strategic plan to the Advisory Committee in Spring 2008 for reaction and feedback and will continue to work with the Provost’s Office to finalize the plan.
