To advance the implementation stage of Beyond Boundaries, the university’s strategic plan, operations teams have been named for each goal theme. Each theme (Academic Excellence, Research in Action, Culture of Inclusion, Community Engagement, Formation of Hearts and Minds and Sustainability of Resources) is led by a theme leader who oversees the Beyond Boundaries Operations Team in managing projects, executing tactics, and measuring outcomes.
According to the Beyond Boundaries website, “Implementing Marquette’s strategic plan in an integrated, college-centric manner that is inextricably tied to the university’s mission, vision and Guiding Values takes organizational effort and depends on the ability of cross-functional teams to collaborate and turn strategic thoughts into operational action through the plan’s six strategic goal themes. For this reason, it is necessary to organize people and teams responsible for implementing action and development. Many people or departments are needed to implement a specific action and progress will be documented using metrics and qualitative indicators for assessing the completion of goals, objectives, and strategic initiatives.”
More information on implementing Beyond Boundaries, including the operations teams (see pop-down menus at bottom of page), is available online.
