Setting Presidential Priorities

Presidential 500 Day Status Report – April 2014

Presidential 500 Day Plan V.2

The Presidential 500-Day Plan presents five dimensions of presidential priorities along with specific actions that will be taken to achieve desired results. Following the completion of my first 500-Day Plan in May 2012, I assessed progress in the areas of academic advancement, campus climate, civic engagement, financial stewardship, and institutional leadership and released in July 2012 a review of the extent to which the desired results were achieved.

I’m pleased to share V.2 of my 500-Day Plan that will guide my efforts from October 2012 to May 2014.  It reflects Clarion University’s mission, vision, and strategic goals that were established as a result of our 2011-2012 strategic directions initiative and articulates priorities related to success, equity and diversity, civic engagement, leadership, and financial sustainability.

I welcome your comments on these reports and invite you to submit them to me at
