Western invites the community to a Public Forum on October 1st, 2014 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Multipurpose Center. The forum is one of several meetings scheduled with the Western campus and community during the next four months aimed at creating a new strategic plan for the college.
The process is an opportunity for those with the most invested in the college and the most to gain from its progress to share their ideas and help the college forge a new strategic plan and direction. John Cooper of the Voorhees Group, one of Western’s strategic planning professional advisers, will be engaging the public about the college’s strategic planning process, sharing a presentation and seeking feedback from those in attendance. All are welcome to attend and provide their input. For more information call Lisa Greenlee at 477-7702.
