The Massachusetts Board of Higher Education (BHE) approved MassArt at 150, Strategic Plan 2018-2023 in June 2019.
During our strategic planning process, we promised to create a public presence where the progress of the plan’s implementation could be followed. Our Vision for the Future is the new online home for this presence. At this site, you will find a live dashboard that provides an overall update of the items in our plan as well as the annual reports presented to MassArt’s Board of Trustees every September.
As you check out the dashboard, remember that you’re looking at a current snapshot of a five-year plan. We’ll continue to post periodic assessments until we approach our 150th anniversary in 2023.
Ongoing progress during plan implementation will be tracked using an online platform, and quarterly updates will be available to the community via a public dashboard. The Strategic Planning Assessment Team will be presenting an annual report to MassArt's Board of Trustees in September.
Accomplishing our goals requires action plans and realignment of our budgets and resources. A Tactical Team has been working to make recommendations to the President’s Cabinet regarding implementation of the plan. For 2019-2020, the Tactical Team is made up of the following members:
Julie Barrett, Project Management (chair)
Brenda Bailey, Justice, Equity, and Transformation (JET)
David Carder, Graduate Programs / Professional and Continuing Education
Karalyn Gau, Institutional Research, Effectiveness, and Planning
Jocelyn McElrath, Student Development
Ernie Plowman, Academic Affairs
Kate Russell, President’s Office
Dan Serig, Academic Affairs
Faith Teycer, Human Resources
Marc Holland, Studio Foundation (advisor)
Throughout the planning process, we have been practicing ways of dialoguing with each other, and new ways of working and organizing ourselves. The Tactical Team is continuing this practice of listening to learn, and while this process may seem slow to some, it emphasizes the importance of input from our knowledge base and those who carry out this work every day.
This plan will carry us through the five years leading up to our 150th anniversary. In five years, we will celebrate the accomplishments of this plan, as well as our 150-year legacy as we envision MassArt for generations to come.
