Memo from the President - March 20, 2013

Date: March 20, 2013
To: FIT Community
From: Dr. Joyce F. Brown, President
Subject:FIT Draft Strategic Plan

I am pleased to share with you a draft of the colleges refreshed strategic plan. As I said in my most recent memo to the community, this draft is the result of many months of hard work by the Planning Council and its subcommittees and includes, as well, the thoughts and ideas culled from individual interviews and focus groups. Every community constituent has contributed---students, faculty, employees, board and foundation members as well as industry representatives.

To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be heard, we are placing the plan on the FIT portal-- --for review and comment. Click on the Announcements and Web Resources tab. We are interested in your thoughts about goals and strategies we may have missed as well as anything that requires further clarity, expansion or discussion. I encourage you to read the draft carefully as well as my introductory letter.

Comments can be submitted to the following: [email protected] Because we are on a tight schedule, we will need your comments no later than April 15, 2013. Your comments will be reviewed together with those that we collect at the roundtable discussions taking place in April. I thank you in advance for finding the time to respond and look forward with enthusiasm to your contributions.
