Guiding Principles

Inclusivity; the planning process should engage all members of the Fitchburg State community, affording all the opportunity to provide input and feel vested in the outcome. 
Transparency (communication); planning will not take place under veil of secrecy!

Taking a broad (vs. local, parochial) view:  determining goals and setting priorities based on what’s deemed best for the University as a whole rather than what’s best for me, my program, my department, my division

Consensus decision making; not every decision will be 100% supported by 100% of folks at the table.

Respect – for shared governance, for differing viewpoints, for process, for confidentiality
