Implementing the Plan
NorthWEstern Will was developed through an inclusive process engaging faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Implementation of the plan will be similarly inclusive. Success will require input and action from University leaders and the entire Northwestern community.
In addition, some initiatives may need to be catalyzed outside of existing structures, and to facilitate this a Catalyst Workgroup has been assembled. This group is comprised of faculty, deans, and administrators, and will have a central role in facilitating the implementation of strategic initiatives that span across the University. Furthermore, the workgroup will move forward priority areas of the plan, address strategic issues, identify potential gaps and overlap in implementation efforts, and track progress.
The work group is chaired by Sandy Goldberg, Professor and Chair of Philosophy and will be led by the Office of Change Management and Office of Administration and Planning.
