GW law enforcement officials have begun developing the school’s next strategic plan to assess the future of the law school and to prioritize teacher guidance in academic and administrative matters.
The law school began its strategic planning process at the first semester of the harvest semester earlier this month and has selected a professional consulting firm to help administrators implement the perspectives of teachers and other stakeholders. Law School Dean Dana Bowen Matthew said officials are planning a new strategic plan to make better use of the school’s resources and move it more “confidently.”
“Using the existing strengths of the law school and our location in Washington, DC, the strategic planning process will provide an opportunity for the law school to determine its priorities by assessing the extent to which various programs can help students. , ”Matthew said in an email.
In July 2020, Matthew became the dean of the law school, becoming the first woman in school history. In support of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives at the school to enhance representation between teachers and students, Matthew prioritized communication with students and teachers in a series of COVID-19 outbreaks.
Matthew b Twitter The school needs guidance and input from three former law school deans – Jack Friedentel, Fred Lawrence and Mike Young.
“The purpose of this process is to use the ideas and power of different groups in our community.
Prior to her appointment as Dean, law school professors pledged to implement anti-racist measures among teachers, such as training and discrimination reports. As part of the new policies outlined in the solution, officials have devised plans to increase the number of color teachers and staff, and the faculty has introduced more courses in the United States with more focus on race and conducted classroom discussions.
Law School’s final strategic planning process, convened in the 2013-14 school year, aims to improve facilities, academic programs and career development.
Roger Trangrudd Deloit, a professor of complex litigation and civil procedure, said he viewed the current strategic plan as “professional” and “organized.” Trangsrud, who led the previous strategic planning process, said the final strategic plan has a larger internal and external teacher and staff committee than the external company, and expects the current plan to extend beyond this school year.
According to Trangsudd, strategic planning process managers will help identify and address opportunities and challenges in the law school, such as online education and early online learning, to replace pensions in the near future. He said new deans, especially outside the institution, usually have a strategic planning process at the beginning of their deaning.
He said it would make sense for the new dean to have a strategic planning committee and process for the new dean to learn about the law school and the challenges and challenges.
Michael Abramovis, Dean of the Academy of Academic Affairs and Professor of Law at the School of Law, said the decision to enroll the Deloitte School will help officials assess the school’s future. He said administrators should take into account the input they receive from teacher interviews to develop a final plan of action.
“The dean was aware of the procedures used by counselors in other schools who had done very well for those schools, and we chose to go that route,” he said. From time to time, universities will want to consult with consulting firms to assist them in various decision-making activities.
According to Abramovis, Deloitte will work with administrators to develop strategic plans for areas such as academic programs and teacher management, rather than just being responsible for the planning process.
“We hope that the strategic plan will enable us to focus our efforts on making our students’ law school experience as strong as possible and continue to be successful, financially and academically,” he said.
Joan Meyer, a professor of clinical law, said that with the help of Deloitte, administrators believe they are aware of the future of the school and faculty in this planning process.
He said he hopes the Deloitte staff will listen carefully because of the effort to include faculties in the process. She said she is more than happy to participate in the planning process and to share her thoughts on various issues.
“I haven’t felt that much in the last few years,” says Meier.
