UPDATED Jan. 13:

The District Design Team convened Jan. 9-10 to begin developing RISD’s next five-year strategic plan. For two days, 50 community members, including students, staff, parents, and business partners, met to start the design process by reviewing the community engagement survey from last spring, the Graduate Profile, and various other district data.

The District Design Team also worked on RISD’s Call to Action statement that will be used to set the direction for the strategic plan work this spring and beyond. The team then used a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) protocol to prioritize a draft of strategic goals for considerations. The community now has the opportunity to provide feedback and input on these goals, as well as help identify metrics and actions the district will need to achieve them.
