As Saint Mary’s moves through the strategic planning process, several themes for differentiating the College have been emerging. The current themes, which are listed here, will continue to evolve throughout the process and will ultimately form the pillars of the strategic plan.
Innovation Teams will develop ideas these ideas into more specific, implementable proposals that address strategic criteria. Initial Innovation Teams will represent Listening Tour themes: Women's Leadership, Health and Sciences, Environmental Studies, Design Thinking, and Women Religious.
Emerging themes will be identified through the open call and Innovation Sessions. Additional Innovation Teams will be established to focus on those themes. Innovation Teams will be interdisciplinary and interdivisional, comprised of faculty, staff, students, and, where appropriate, alumnae and/or other leaders in community, business, and industry.
