Current News at SUNY Orange http://www.sunyorange.edu/wea/grapevine/campus Current News for Tuesday, September 2, 2014 Tue, 02 Sep 2014 04:00:00 +0000 Challenges and Opportunities Facing the College Colleagues

Attached is a copy of my report from the August Assembly meeting detailing the most significant challenges facing the College in the next few years, and the opportunities we may capitalize upon to address those challenges. In October, I will be giving a more detailed version of this report to the Board of Trustees.

Our responses to these challenges, and others that will arise in the not-to-distant future, may largely be framed by the revisions to our mission, vision and values, along with the strategic priorities that will be developed as part of our new Strategic Plan. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams and Christine Work are heading the steering committee that is undertaking the review of the mission, vision and values, as well as the strategic planning.

I ask you to consider what potential opportunities within your respective area may arise as we face these challenges. You may also see potential outcomes that could benefit SUNY Orange college-wide. Linda and Christine have arranged several open forums and other opportunities (including an online survey in which responses are requested by thisFriday, Sept. 5) for you to provide input. I encourage you to do so. Your thoughtful insights will help us consider all potentialities and assure the continued good health of the College in the coming years.
