dc.description.abstract Background The Academic Affairs Division, in partnership with the Academic Senate, initiated a process of strategic planning during the 2003-04 academic year. This process is designed to develop a general strategy for the division that will provide both guidance in identifying priorities for division-wide initiatives and a context for resource allocation decisions within the schools. The first stage of this planning process was completed during the Fall 2003 semester. It included two division-wide community meetings that provided an opportunity to air concerns, to review the process that would be followed, and to obtain broad input into an articulation of values, mission, and vision for Academic Affairs. Over several subsequent meetings, a large Strategic Planning Committee of faculty, staff, and administrators from the division developed draft mission and vision statements that were released to the community for review and comment and posted on this Web site. During the spring 2004 semester the Committee undertook the tasks of specification of strategic areas, and general strategies and initiatives under each area. The initiatives developed are broad in scope and will require implementation plans that include identification of measurable objectives, required resources, timelines, and responsible parties. Community input has been collected from the full membership of the Academic Senate and other members of the community on the draft of the plan developed so far, and will be incorporated by the Committee in developing the final version of the plan by the end of the Spring 2005 semester. The current draft plan has already provided guidance to various units within the Academic Affairs Division as they formulated their goals and objectives for the 2004-05 academic year. Partly based on the positive experience in Academic Affairs, the President has initiated a similar strategic planning process for the University. The priorities developed in the Academic Affairs plan will provide a valuable model for the formulation of the broader University priorities and strategy. This important Academic Affairs initiative has been a positive experience for Sonoma State University. We are grateful for the commitment and contributions of the members of the Strategic Planning Committee and for the interest and feedback of all other members of the AA community Eduardo M.
