The PSU College of Education (COE) this week unveiled a 2019-22 Strategic Plan for the COE that features a vision of counselors and educators who create a just and equitable world.

COE Dean Marvin Lynn disseminated the Strategic Plan to the faculty and staff this week. The plan not only features a far-thinking mission about the counselors and educators who work and learn in the COE, but it also bears a mission of empowerment for educators and human services professionals.

“The plan provides us with important direction for shaping the future of the College of Education,” Lynn said.

The plan states that the COE faculty and staff members will be expected to meet three imperatives: prioritize student excellence and success, foster inclusive excellence (as defined by University of Denver Center for Multicultural Excellence), and enhance the COE’s visibility and impact.

The Strategic Planning Committee spent several months crafting early ideas for the plan, and that committee included faculty, staff, students, and alumni. The COE also received guidance for the strategic plan process from Coraggio Group, a Portland business management consulting firm. In addition, the strategic plan was supported by a generous gift from Mr. David Sampsell.

“I’m quite proud of the work we’ve accomplished together,” Lynn said.

The COE leadership team will create an implementation plan this summer for the 2019-22 Strategic Plan that they plan to share with faculty and staff in the fall.

“No plan is perfect,” Lynn said. “But I hope you will agree that this plan best represents our future direction in a clear, succinct, and interconnected manner.”
