During her first 100 days, Chancellor Phoebe A. Haddon invested a great deal of time and energy into listening to many of our diverse stakeholders who discussed thoughts, ideas, concerns, and ambitions for the future of our institution. Those meetings talked about the steps required to advance Rutgers University–Camden and our students, faculty, staff, alumni, supporters, and communities.
Rutgers–Camden is at an exciting juncture in its history. There are many opportunities before us and, in order to seize this moment and secure our future growth, we must have a strategic plan that is both forward-thinking in scope and realistic in implementation.
The Rutgers University–Camden Strategic Plan reflects the shared goals of our campus community for the coming five years. The plan incorporates the valuable insight from so many members of our Rutgers–Camden community with the extraordinary planning work that had been done by Chancellor Wendell Pritchett and the members of our campus.
This document represents a comma, and not a period, in our ongoing dialogue about the future of Rutgers University–Camden. We must be open to new priorities and to constantly evaluating our progress. During the next 100 days, Chancellor Haddon will appoint several committees to explore how we should prioritize, operationalize, and implement this plan.
Feedback is invited regarding the ambitious, yet clear-eyed, goals that the Rutgers–Camden community has set for itself.
