Phase I: 64-Campus Tour
Chancellor Zimpher met with SUNY faculty members, staff, students, alumni groups, affiliate organizations, and community and business leaders during her visits to each of the campuses constituting Phase I of the strategic planning process. In addition, she met with congressional and legislative representatives, the SUNY Board of Trustees, the SUNY campus presidents and members of the media. The Campus Tour provided the Chancellor and her team with an invaluable perspective on the current state of SUNY and an initial understanding of SUNY's most pressing issues and possibilities from the ground up. Information collected from these activities along with responses submitted to Share Your Ideas and firstname.lastname@example.org was compiled. Sixteen preliminary themes and several core infrastructure issues emerged to serve as a foundation for Phase II development activities.
