Welcome to my President's blog! I'm so glad you found us. I first had the idea to begin a blog in the middle of our Strategic Planning brainstorming meetings during the last few months. We've been collecting comments and feedback for the 12 questions that are a part of our Strategic Planning Survey since September. As we move forward from these surveys, I wanted to create a way to keep you updated on a regular basis on the progress we make as we take the feedback we'e receiving from these sessions and develop the long-term vision and mission of McNeese State University.
Once my staff and I have collected all of the responses and feedback, we will create a list of projects shaped by the feedback we receive. Some will be short-term projects that we can tackle right away- I call these the "low-hanging fruit". While others will be long-term projects that may depend on variables beyond our immediate control - these will be tagged for the future. These are the types of updates and news items you can expect to see here in this blog.
We still have a few of our "brainstorming sessions" left, so it's not too late for you to get involved! You can fill out the survey online by clicking the survey link above. Or we would love to see you at one of our remaining scheduled sessions:
- January 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office Training Center - 412 Bolivar Bishop Drive, DeRidder, La.
- January 19 at 5:30 p.m. at the Petroleum Club of Lafayette - 111 Heymann Blvd., Lafayette, La.
We'e working on confirming a date and time for a session in Kinder as well, and we'll announce that soon here and on the Strategic Planning page.
View the responses we've received from the questions so far.
Thank you for your support of McNeese. I look forward to hearing your ideas!
