Strategic priorities feedback sessions scheduled

NAU’s Strategic Planning Council will host a number of feedback sessions with the campus community to give NAU students, faculty and staff the opportunity to provide feedback on university near-term priorities.

“University planning is a cyclical process,” explained Pat Haeuser, vice president of Planning, Budget and Institutional Effectiveness. “Each year the NAU community is invited to react to current priorities and to help identify future directions.”

As part of the 2009 planning process, five major planning priorities will be discussed in the context of the recently developed strategic plan:

  • Faculty and staff salaries
  • Flagstaff campus facilities
  • Health-care education for Arizona
  • Serving rural Arizona
  • Economic development, workforce education and research
