I am sharing the Action Plan presentation I gave to the Board of Governors (BOG) on July 7th. The slides that accompanied my presentation are also available. Please be advised we were limited by time, content and format on what we could present. For instance, each University was limited to 4 academic programs they could highlight.
Through this presentation, I shared where we have been and more importantly, where we are going. I identified our strengths and our challenges. I publicly declared, "Mansfield University is Pennsylvania's Premier Public Liberal Arts University". I identified our competitors, our niche, and our value proposition. Since the BOG presentation in July, I have presented this information to elected state officials in small group and/or individual sessions. There is great support for Mansfield University and its stated path.
As we face and overcome immediate challenges before us, always remember: this is our University and we are the masters of its destiny. Each of us has an important role to play in its success and in its long-term sustainment.
