On Thursday, May 19, the Arkansas Tech Board of Trustees culminated a 12-month process by approving a strategic plan that is designed to chart the course for the university’s future.
“This document is a reflection of months of hard work from members of the executive planning council, strategic planning committee, working group chairs and working group members,” wrote Dr. Robin E. Bowen, Arkansas Tech president, in a memorandum presented to trustees. “Feedback and suggestions from our faculty, staff, and students have been considered, though not all have been included, in the final draft. In sum, I believe the strategic plan captures the spirit of what and where Arkansas Tech University aspires to be in the next five years. With your approval, I look forward to implementing the plan in fiscal year 2017 and beyond.”
