Ideas and proposals requested for new strategic plan
Dear colleagues, students, alumni and all friends of the university
The university’s current Strategic Plan will expire in two years and therefore it is time we started reviewing what we have achieved and formulating our objectives and tasks for the next period.
Achievement of the objectives of the University of Tartu depends on the everyday work of us all and so it is important that the general common goals harmonised with the values and aims of our entire academic family. This can only be realised if we formulate our strategic objectives together, supporting on broad-based experience.
I wish that the new Strategic Plan focused even more on valuing the people who appreciate common objectives and contribute every day to attain them. That is why it is important for each and every member of the university to have the opportunity and the desire to think along about setting the university’s objectives. I invite all employees, students and graduates of the university to send their suggestions, ideas and descriptions of problems for the new Strategic Plan.
We ask you to send your proposals and opinions via the special online form by 31 October 2018. Thereafter, your input will be used, along with reference data of other universities and other important materials, by the strategic planning committee. We definitely plan to offer our employees and students opportunities for involvement in future, during the whole period of strategic planning.
The new Strategic Plan will be approved in the autumn of 2019.
Having recently started work with new members, the Rector’s Office would like – in addition to setting long-term goals – to deal with current problems that need solving right away. This is why we also expect proposals, comments and stories from you that help us get an idea of the most urgent problems and offer solutions.
Looking forward to our cooperation,
