The objective of this SIUE School of Pharmacy strategic plan is to provide an organizational map of actions necessary to achieve target goals for 2013-2018. In the Spring of 2012, the Strategic Planning Committee convened for the initial alignment of the school’s mission, vision and values to that of our current evolution and desired direction. Information reviewed included, but was not limited to, stakeholder focus groups, Dean’s reports, accreditation report and the 2009 strategic plan. Evaluations culminated in a strategic planning retreat that included primary stakeholders and/or representatives (faculty, staff, students, administration and community leaders). The strategic planning retreat encompassed analyses of School strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (S.W.O.T. analysis), review and evaluation of the School of Pharmacy’s mission, vision, and values and concluded with the initial development of goals and initiatives. Subsequent delineation and clarification of gathered information was performed by the Strategic Planning Committee in concert with various stakeholders and a draft plan was presented for stakeholder review on April 11, 2013. The finalized Strategic Plan was accepted for implementation on July 18, 2013.
Responsibility for the dissemination, monitoring and general oversight of the Strategic Plan resides with the Strategic Planning Committee, which will perform annual reviews each August in coordination with the Dean’s office and individuals/committees accountable for respective goals/initiatives.
