This week the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will begin plotting out its future. UGA officials want input from people all over the state.
The first of six regional strategic planning meetings takes place Thursday in Tifton. University of Georgia President Michael Adams is asking all UGA schools and colleges to develop plans through 2020. The university released its own ten-year plan last year. UGA’s Laura Perry-Johnson is on the planning committee. She says the group will finish by June when budget requests are made.
“From that massive amount of input we will start to look at common themes and then try to develop a plan that we can more closely target our resources.”
Johnson says right now those resources are limited. The study will also examine what the school does well and how it can improve and create partnerships with other institutions.
