At its July 2017 meeting, The Forum’s Board of Directors approved the 2017-21 Strategic Plan. The culmination of nearly 18 months of work involving hundreds of Forum colleagues, the Strategic Plan will act as a roadmap for The Forum to serve its members, and the field, to benefit students abroad. This Strategic Plan also articulates The Forum’s Mission, Vision and Foundational Principles.
The Forum thanks the Strategic Planning Team (Enda Carroll, University College Dublin; Nick Gozik, Boston College; Mary Anne Grant, Forum Board Chair and ISEP emerita; Susan Popko, Santa Clara University; Lorna Stern, Arcadia University; Natalie A. Mello and Annmarie Whalen, Forum staff) and the many Forum members, too numerous to name here, who offered their knowledge, expertise and opinions during plan’s development. Our special thanks to Mark Lenhart (CET Academic Programs) and John Lucas (ISEP) for serving as ex officio team members.
