As you know, Luther Seminary is in the midst of discerning our strategic direction and your input is vital to the process. The survey we sent out in June was an important first step. Thanks to all who participated. We had a great response and your input really mattered. The design team used what we learned from the survey to craft three future scenarios, and it’s time for your input again.
Members of the Strategic Planning Design Team are guiding groups through a process to engage the three scenarios. The primary way of doing that is by working with existing work groups/teams. We also believe it is important to offer sessions open to the whole community.
Next week there will be two sessions – Monday and Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday, July 26, will be in-person (GH 104) and Tuesday, July 27, will be online. The Zoom link will be included in the community announcements email.
All staff and faculty are invited to attend, although these open sessions are voluntary and optional. They were included for the sake of those people who could not attend a similar session with their core team or work group, but you are also free to attend more than one session in case you have more to process and contribute. Ken Reynhout and Terri Elton are facilitating the in-person group. Elizabeth Schoenknecht and Heidi Droegemueller are facilitating the online group. If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of them.
