Strategic Plan Regional Forums

NEW! Please see new dates below for the two forums rescheduled due to Hurricane Dorian: The University System of Georgia invites the public to attend any of five upcoming regional forums being held in September as part of its 2019 strategic planning effort.

The new strategic plan will set the system’s agenda for the next four years and beyond, making this input crucial. The system and state face challenges and opportunities in the coming years that make the plan imperative for our institutions. It is important not only for the system’s success but, more importantly, the success of our students.

All forums are open to the public, and are expected to last about 1.5 hours. They provide a direct opportunity for our key stakeholder groups — especially those of faculty, staff and students — to provide face-to-face feedback on the new strategic plan’s direction.
