Forum Presentation (PPT, 8 MB)

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Office of Planning and Assessment co-sponsored a series of regional strategic planning forums during the Spring 2017 semester. Each forum focused on a specific theme from the University’s strategic plan and the work being done to take ideas related to that theme and translate them into impactful, real-world initiatives.

This forum, held on Penn State’s Behrend campus, focused on Driving Digital Innovation, one of the strategic plan’s five thematic priorities. Panelists, including individuals representing the executive committee and steering committee focused on this theme, shared how they are taking the broad ideas articulated in the plan and developing actionable endeavors that reflect them. They then answered questions and solicited feedback.
