Interdivisional Implementation Initiatives

The following committees and initiatives lead implementation of strategic plan goals with interdivisional functions. Each initiative builds on a specific BSU strategic plan goal and is directly tied to outcomes. An initiative plan guides the process and each committee is comprised of BSU representatives from across divisions. The BSU strategic plan also includes initiatives led by each university division through their divisional strategic plans.
