Faculty, staff, community partners, students and various other relevant stakeholders gathered in 2011 to formulate and update the Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health’s most recent strategic plan. The process of reviewing and updating that strategic plan was suspended in 2017 with the announcement of the then Dean’s retirement. The process began again in earnest in fall 2019 subsequent to the arrival of the current Dean. A strategic planning retreat was scheduled for April 2020. That retreat, and activities related to a college-level strategic plan, were suspended due to the vital role the college was playing in the COVID-19 pandemic in Arkansas. The possibility of moving forward with strategic planning in a virtual manner was considered; however, it was determined that the students and college as a whole would be better served by moving forward with strategic planning at a later date. Expectations are that strategic planning will begin again during the spring semester of 2022.
Please send any questions or comments regarding the college’s strategic planning to the Office of Planning and Policy.
