How will the campus be involved in providing input into the establishment of the initiatives?

 This effort will only be successful with the involvement of the entire University. Each initiative will have a committee with representatives from across the campus including students, staff, faculty and administration. These committees may have subcommittees or working groups with even broader representation. Open forums, surveys and other approaches will be employed to provide opportunities for every member of the campus community to participate.

How is this committee different from the Strategic Plan Steering Committee?

The Strategic Plan Steering Committee was established for the purpose of creating the current University Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan Steering Committee ended its work when the strategic plan was adopted. The strategic plan helps set the general direction for the campus, but this effort will assist in identifying specific ways the strategic plan will be implemented.
