LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Once again, the Lock Haven University strategic planning committee invites members of the community to participate in an online survey. Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and
work in Pennsylvania.
The input from the previous survey was used to draft possible mission and vision statements. Now, the public is invited to respond to the draft statements in a second online survey.
Committee co-chair Deborah Erickson said, “We would appreciate the community’s input on the revised mission/vision and core values.” She noted that response to the previous survey, along with self-studies and numerous discussions, helped the committee draft the revised mission and vision. Erickson added, “The mission and vision drive the strategic plan, and the development of the strategic goals is the next phase of this strategic planning process.” She urged members of the public to take part in the survey.
Co-Chair Fay Cook, professor of health science, commented on the role of the survey in the strategic planning process. “We are grateful to the community for their input, and hope to have a mission statement, vision, and core values very soon. Once this has been fine-tuned, we will have as solid base from which to develop a Strategic Plan that accurately reflects the ideals and strengths of Lock Haven University.”
