Sept. 17 - University System of Georgia to host Savannah regional forum on Sept. 19

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

September 17, 2019 - On Thursday, Sept. 17 the University System of Georgia invites the public to attend a Savannah regional forum, as part of the USG's 2019 strategic planning effort. The forum will take place at 3:15 p.m. at the Savannah Convention Center in the Oglethorpe Auditorium.

The new strategic plan will set USG’s agenda for the next four years and beyond. This is a chance to weigh in on how the system will face the challenges and opportunities of public higher education in Georgia.

The strategic planning forum is being held in conjunction with the system’s annual interactUSG technology conference, which requires registration. The forum itself, however, is fully open to the public – no registration required.

The Board of Regents laid the foundation for the plan in March. Over the summer, working groups that include University System Office staff as well as presidents representing each of USG’s four academic sectors have gathered ideas and refined them into draft goals, which will be discussed at the forums.

As the system gathers feedback from its stakeholders, both these and new goals will be firmed up to help outline strategies moving the system forward. Metrics, broken out by sector, will also be developed to measure progress toward the plan.

More details about each forum is posted on the system’s homepage at
