Guiding Principles

  • Communication and transparency are key. The planning committee will share information and seek input throughout the planning process.
  • The process is as important as the plan itself. We value broad participation in the development of our plan, and we strive to include all voices.
  • This plan will be developed over the course of the 2015-2016 academic year yet we will be patient with the process. Patience opens space for discovery, learning, reflection and sense making.
  • Our plan will be based on our community's best effort at envisioning the future of Dickinson and articulating our aspirations. There are no predetermined outcomes.
