Buffalo State's strategic planning process, officially launched October 18, 2001, is intended to be inclusive, highly participative, and open and respectful of existing governance systems. Over a 12-month period, more than 800 faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community leaders contributed to the creation of the 2003-2008 strategic plan, which was finalized in October 2002. Four years later the planning process for the 2009-2013 plan commenced.
Buffalo State views its strategic plan as a "compass" that will point the college in the direction it needs to move to best fit its changing educational, societal, and fiscal environment.
The College Planning Council
The College Planning Council (CPC) appointed by President Muriel A. Howard is guiding the planning and implementation of the strategic plan. The CPC includes faculty, staff, student, and administrative representatives. It was charged with drafting key elements of the plan (strategic directions, initiatives, and action steps) and ways to evaluate successful implementation.
All faculty, staff, and administrative CPC members have agreed to serve five-year terms (2003-2008) on the council. Student members remain on the council through their graduation.
