As part of the strategic planning process, a number of discussion groups (sub-groups) were established to delve into specific subject areas. Reports from those groups were included in the final Strategic Plan as a series of appendices. The charge to the various sub groups was to produce a report that provided:
• a summary of where UMW stood with respect to the group’s defined topic area
• a list of key issues/challenges associated with the area
• a set of goals for the area that would enable UMW to meet larger visions of the strategic plan
• a timetable and benchmarks for achieving area goals
Each Discussion Group report appears below.
