Strategic Planning

A light bulb graphic.

Join the entire D'Youville community as we plan for our future and define our purpose as a leader in education through the creation of our strategic plan.

The Adaptive Planning Framework

D’Youville adopted a new adaptive planning process that forms the basis for a data-informed, strategic approach to creating focus and purpose across D’Youville, aligning long-range plans to the critical daily work of teaching and learning, managing limited resources and making decisions that move the college toward achieving its vision, mission, aspirations and strategic goals. This new approach also helps the campus to meet Middle States Standard VI. 


Establishing Priorities & Strategies

Clear goals and priorities will be established by the Board of Trustees, President and senior leaders that will be routinely reviewed to determine if any need to be changed, added or archived.


Drop Box Participation

The campus community will have opportunities to submit ideas online that can help shape the new adaptive strategic plan.


Submission Review

The Strategic Planning Working Group will review new ideas submitted by campus stakeholders monthly, for goal and priority alignment.


Open Campus Review Period

New ideas will be posted online for one month for the campus community to weigh in on.


Leadership Review

If the ideas meet the set criteria, they will be forwarded to leadership for prioritization. Designated priority ideas will be added to the rolling Strategic Plan and non-priority ideas will be added to an Idea Archive for development at a later date.


The D'Youville Playbook

D’Youville Playbook will be published in a reader friendly format. The annual playbook will compile the priorities, initiatives, and tasks identified for the next budget year.


Ideation Huddle

Campus community members are invited to a yearly retreat-like “huddle” for campus to brainstorm new ideas, goals, and priorities as well as review progress on current projects.
