STRATEGIC PLANNING IS CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
The strategic planning process can also be a time where different constituent groups lobby for their priorities to be strategic priorities. How can we, as student affairs professionals, provide feedback that civic engagement should be part of the strategic plan? If the strategic planning process centers on “how the students will get there,” i.e. what the institution will do to help them achieve the mission, then these are the core questions for constituent groups: What do our students need? What do we do well that helps them and what should we do to help students meet those needs? Likely, phrases such as linking to the work, global citizenship, multiple perspectives, and media literacy will emerge as what students need to “get there.” These are all elements of civic engagement. An institution does not have to have the words civic engagement in its strategic plan to prioritize it.
