Strategic Planning

Facilitating Strategic Planning across Northwestern University

Coupling in-depth knowledge of Northwestern University's schools and units with peer insights, the Planning team facilitates strategic planning at multiple levels across the University.

At the broadest level, the Planning team coordinates University-wide strategic planning. The three most recent university strategic planning initiatives were facilitated by the Vice President of Administration and Planning and the Planning team: NorthWEstern Will (the University's current plan), Highest Order of Excellence II (2005-2010), and Highest Order of Excellence I (1997-2003). At the school and unit level, the Planning team provides strategic planning assistance and support to schools, units, and departments.
