• Envision UCSC, UCSC's first-ever campuswide strategic planning effort, launched in October, 2013. Building upon UCSC’s remarkable history, renewing our commitment to the state and its students, and taking advantage of new opportunities in the learning and research environment, we will identify goals in this process that will inform our decisions as we seek to enhance and energize our programs, research, and student experiences. Led by a 57-member task force of faculty, staff, and administrators, Planning Task Force members will tap broad swaths of the UC Santa Cruz community through focus groups, town halls, and meetings to capture broad input. Your participation will contribute to the eventual result of a concise, two-page document that envisions our future and empowers everyone on campus—as units, departments, and individuals—to support campuswide goals.
