TECH 2020 in 2010 is President Dan Reneau’s initiative to renew, refresh, and refocus the original TECH 2020 strategic plan to ensure that the University stays in tune with academic, economic, and research trends in the State, region, and nation.
The TECH 2020 Steering Committee, appointed by Dr. Reneau, has been reviewing TECH 2020 and assessing current and future issues that can be viewed as strengths and challenges to Louisiana Tech University.
The Steering Committee has developed a "Roadmap" for TECH 2020 in 2010 to serve as a starting point for discussions among the constituents of the University. Initially, seven Focus Areas have been identified as critical to sustaining the University’s growth and economic viability: Recruitment, Retention, Student Success, Enrollment, Diversity, Institutional Partnerships, and Research & Development.
To facilitate campus-wide discussion and to foster broad-based engagement with Dr. Reneau’s initiative, the Steering Committee has developed a preliminary list of implementing strategies, actions, agents, and target dates under each of the Focus Areas. This Roadmap is designed to be the catalyst for discussion, brainstorming, developing strategies, and assessing outcomes with a view to improving and enhancing the University. As such, the Roadmap is a living document, subject to revision and open to creative problem solving.
We must take action now to energize faculty, administrators, staff, and students as productive collaborators in this critical initiative. The deadlines are ambitious, but the times demand that we review how we operate and provide the services necessary to ensure the success of our students and our University.
We have developed this website to provide our campus community with useful information about this effort and a means of providing valuable feedback. We would like to encourage you to take advantage of this resource and contribute to the success of this initiative.
