Our Strategic Plan for 2021-2025
Accelerate 2025 is Robinson’s five-year strategic plan; it provides a laser-focused purpose for everything we do. Accelerate 2025 isn’t just a document. Instead, it is a roadmap the college’s constituents tirelessly worked on for more than a year to get right.
The Strategic Planning Committee distributed surveys to internal and external stakeholders to collect perspectives, conducted research to identify the strategic issues the plan needed to address and hosted Visioning Day. In this half-day brainstorming session, college and university stakeholders came together to brainstorm what success will look like when we reach our most critical goals. Deciding the trajectory of Robinson’s future was a 360-degree process. We appreciate everyone who participated in this effort.
Now for the fun part: activating the plan! Check back often to monitor our progress.
