Focus Areas Collaborative Council

Members of the Executive Planning Committee (EPC) who developed the Drexel 2030 Strategic Plan continue their work through implementation by ensuring continuity and providing guidance and insights to the initiative teams through membership on the Focus Areas Collaborative Council.

The council meets one to two times per year with the CORE team and chairs of the twelve initiative teams to report on progress and strategize around prioritization and implementation of strategic initiatives.

Area Owners & Operational Leads

After completion of the ideation phase, initiative teams work closely with area owners, or senior leaders of the related unit(s), and operational leads within that unit, to review, prioritize, and implement strategic initiatives, as well as determine a mechanism for tracking and measuring progress.

Drexel 2030 progress is being tracked and measured through a set of goals and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) surrounding the Drexel 2030 imperatives.
