Georgia Southern University to host Mission and Vision Feedback Sessions, welcomes input from community

Georgia Southern University’s Strategic Planning Committee will host University Mission and Vision Feedback Sessions on March 5-7 at campuses in Statesboro, Savannah and Hinesville. The six facilitated events are open to the public and designed to gather feedback from the community and to offer the opportunity to shape Georgia Southern’s new mission and vision statements, values and goals — all of which will inform the University’s new Strategic Plan.

“This is an exciting time to be at Georgia Southern, as we work together to envision the future,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Carl L. Reiber, Ph.D., who is overseeing the Strategic Planning process. “It’s important that the University’s strategic planning process is as inclusive as possible, giving community members, alumni and other external stakeholders the opportunity to get involved.”

The University Mission and Vision Feedback Session schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, March 5
Liberty Campus – Hinesville
Classroom 105
2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.  

Wednesday, March 6
Statesboro Campus – Statesboro
Russell Union 2041
10:10 a.m. and 12:20 p.m.  

Thursday, March 7
Armstrong Campus – Savannah
Armstrong Center, Room 106
11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.  

“Mission and vision statements help to define who we are and what we aspire to be as an institution,” said Reiber. “We need a more concise mission statement that reflects our priorities and will guide us going forward.”

Throughout the 2018-2019 academic year, the University Strategic Planning Committee has engaged students, faculty, staff and community members in the strategic planning process. Most recently, the committee hosted several Town Hall events to facilitate community input that will help define the goals and priorities for the institution. The Strategic Plan, a five-year vision for the institution’s future, will move the University forward with a clear set of goals, strategies and measurable outcomes for key areas. The plan also will update the University’s mission and vision statements.

Parking for the community is available on each campus, free of charge, for the University Mission and Vision Feedback Sessions.
