          University Initiatives



          Through a consistent and systematic approach to addressing challenges and capitalizing on opportunities, Edinboro University works proactively to fulfill its mission as a public regional comprehensive university.

          Reeder Hall

          Under the leadership of President H. Fred Walker and through the framework of shared governance, the University pursues sustainability, growth, and refinement through a process of fact-finding, analysis, external validation and timely decision making. In keeping with a process grounded in integrity, transparency and accountability, details of each new University Initiative will be shared here as they develop.

          President's Listening Tour

          Throughout much of the 2016 Fall Semester, President Walker conducted his first Listening Tour of academic departments and other units of the University while simultaneously engaging in extensive efforts to build relationships with as many external constituents as possible. He plans to share the findings of the 2016 Listening Tour early in the Spring 2017 semester and to conduct the campus-wide listening initiative annually during the fall semester.

          Packages of Achievements/Interventions

          On October 12, 2016, the first iteration of a "Package of Interventions" (POI) was shared with the campus community to document actions taken to address challenges and capitalize on opportunities. A new POI will be shared approximately every 60 days.

          Working Groups

          Three Working Groups (WG's) are being formed in December 2016 with a charge of conducting fact-finding and a SCOT analysis to provide a frank and objective assessment of our university and help determine the path forward toward sustainability, growth and refinement. Our goal is to ensure all members of our university community clearly understand our financial position and the University's Strengths, Challenges, Opportunities and Threats preceding the development of strategy and plans to enhance our efficacy and effectiveness relative to our charter as a public regional comprehensive university.
