The Goal of Strategic Thinking Week

The goal of Strategic Thinking Week was to bring representatives from our many constituencies together to continue to define what an impactful, innovative School of Education must look like in 2020 and how the Rossier School will achieve that status.

The Planning Team

The Week was organized by a planning team consisting of:

  • Karen Gallagher
  • Mary Andres
  • Darnell Cole
  • Michael Escalante
  • Guilbert C. Hentschke
  • Eugenia Mora-Flores
  • Board Chair Ira Krinsky
  • Anne Wicks (Assistant Dean of Advancement)
  • Nancy Aronson (Facilitator)
  • Rosi Barbeau (Facilitator)

Concentration Meetings

During Strategic Thinking Week, the faculty from each one of our four concentrations met for a half-day and focused specifically on that concentration.

Concentration Meeting Agenda

Concentrations

  • K-12 Education Policy – Monday, September 19
  • Teacher Education in a Multicultural Society – Tuesday, September 20
  • Educational Psychology- Wednesday, September 21
  • Higher Education – Thursday, September 22

Key Questions

The faculty brainstormed and generated ideas that  answered key questions:

  1. What distinguishes our graduates?
  2. What impact do we want our graduates to make in the field?
  3. What impact can our research have on urban education?

 Session Outcomes

The work of these four half-day sessions served as the foundation for the Integration Meeting on Friday and 1/2 day Saturday.   This meeting  broadened the scope of the discussion and involve representatives, chosen by the planning committee, from our faculty, staff, the student body, alumni, and other external stakeholders.  This Integration Meeting  used the work of the concentrations to focus on establishing bold goals for the School’s future, in the context of an educational landscape that continues to change dramatically.  The process of drafting a new Strategic Plan began from the outcomes of the Integration Meeting.
