Our own chair of Writing and Rhetoric, Stephanie Vie, presented on the Strategic Alignment panel during the Collective Impact Institutionalization Plan Roll-Out. Dr. Vie, along with others such as the Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science, answered questions relating to their involvement and strategies in aligning their departments with the university’s Collective Impact plan. The purpose of this event was to make the campus community and internal stakeholders aware of the institutionalization plan and to build excitement for the future of the university and meeting certain metrics. In addition, it was an opportunity to communicate different ideas and strategies to keep the departments and colleges in line with the Collective Impact Plan. It is an honor to have a leader that is actively involved with meeting the university’s future goals, and ensuring that the department is contributing to the plan. Thank you, Dr. Vie, for representing us!
