Future Possibilities

Phase II: Spring 2014

Phase II focuses on sensing and actualizing emerging futures. It is anticipated that the reports on the fall ‘possibility’ conversations will present ways of seeing our world that give us the ability to re-perceive reality in ways that lead to strategic insights into how higher education in general and Chico State in particular may evolve over the coming years and decades.

To accomplish these insights, we will:

  • Conduct a series of mini-retreats to collectively interpret the findings from Phase I.
  • Identify the themes and meta-themes contained in the 61 possibility conversation reports.
  • Conduct the next set of commitment and action conversations around selected themes identified.
  • Hold consultations with Academic Affairs and campus constituents on desired elements of a revised Academic Plan.
  • Launch the 2014-2019 Academic Plan in May of 2014.
