Hello, I am Steve Perez, your Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. I would like to welcome you to our Strategic Plan site. This Strategic Plan was developed during the 2017-18 academic year and is the result of extensive conversation and collaboration. That being said, I believe it should be a dynamic document. To accomplish that, we would like to inspire vibrant conversations with the campus community as we enact the Plan and its goals. We are currently working on a strategy for regularly reviewing it, so we invite you to share your thoughts on the Strategic Plan by sending an email to academicaffairs@csus.edu.
