The committee then divided into two groups to analyze the data from listening sessions and surveys. In addition to manual coding, both groups utilized qualitative software to identify prevailing themes to inform the contextual framework for the strategic plan. Overlapping themes in the data from both processes emerged.
To complete their work, the committee developed an initial draft featuring goals, objectives, and learning domains. Committee members shared an overview of the learning domains and themes with the Division of Student Affairs and the Academic Leadership Council, acquiring feedback to further inform development of the final draft. The strategic planning committee together with the Student Affairs Vice President Leadership Team and the Student Affairs Branding and Marketing Committee participated in a group writing workshop based on the skills sets and varying areas of expertise to develop a final draft.
