Welcome From President Cabrera
On August 17, 2012, the Board of Visitors adopted a resolution that charged me with the creation of a new Strategic Vision for the University in collaboration with the faculty and key internal and external stakeholders. The new Vision will be the basis for a new academic strategic plan and a new comprehensive campaign. During our board meeting last week, I shared with the board the process we will follow to produce this Vision and the structure of the outcome I plan to bring for their consideration (and, hopefully, their enthusiastic endorsement!). Here are the highlights.
In terms of outcome, I envision a short, one-page document that will include (a) a concise and memorable mission statement, (b) a set of values describing “The Mason Way” of doing things, (c) a profile of the attributes we wish to see in all our graduates and therefore have embedded in every one of our programs, which we’re referring to as “The Mason Graduate”, and (d) a set of aspirational and inspirational commitments for the next decade.
