Steering Committee

The Strategic Planning Steering Committee actively contributes to the realization of the SOM mission and vision through:

  • Identifying the most important strategic objectives related to strategic goals of the SOM
  • Facilitating the defining of metrics which will reflect success in achieving agreed-upon objectives and action plans.
  • Incorporating and assessing periodic environmental scans, followed by reassessment of the SOM’s strategic goals. 
  • Serving as a 2-way information conduit to SOM faculty, staff, students, and other stakeholders regarding strategic goals, objectives, and action plans.

The Strategic Planning Steering Committee is focusing efforts for the academic year 2020-2021 on new strategic initiatives that will expand diversity, improve equity and continue to build our culture of inclusion.
