There will be two upcoming focus groups on Dec 6 and Dec 7 to share feedback that will help frame the strategic plan.

Sign up for a mixed group session (*Any students, staff, faculty, and alums are welcome to join) or alumni session to meet a cross-section of community members! Sessions will be held on Zoom for 90 minutes.

Tuesday, Dec. 6 | 11:30am–1pm

ALUMNI focus group - Click to Sign Up

Wednesday, Dec 7 | 5pm–6:30pm

These sessions will explore questions about our purpose as a public art + design university, what success might look like ten years from now, and some of the challenges and opportunities we face.

Each group has space for 15 participants and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once you sign up, you will receive a personalized Zoom link to participate on the day of your session.

Our facilitators are Dorla Tune and JP Baker from Vantage Point, who have been supporting us throughout the strategic planning process. A notetaker will be present to capture the critical ideas and issues. Notes from each discussion will not be attributed to specific individuals.

More Opportunities to Participate!

Question of the Week: Since September, we’ve asked a weekly question to ECU about topics such as teaching and learning, student experience, and institutional purpose and identity. Thank you for sharing your thoughts each week, and we encourage you to keep sharing your feedback. Need to catch up? You can visit the form anytime and answer questions from previous weeks.

Hands-On Activities: Please join in and participate in our Engagement Wall, located in the MOEC between the library and RBC Media Gallery, to engage in a collaborative activity to map out a vision for a future ECU. Look out for more interactive opportunities rolling out next year, including a storybooth to record personal stories about learning at ECU!

Don’t hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions about this initiative.

Thank you,
