Student Housing and Dining Services Strategic Plan2021

I. Introduction

The UC Davis Student Housing Leadership Team began the process of updating the department strategic plan in spring 2013. The strategic planning process was initiated with an informationgathering phase that included discussions with the leaders and managers within the department, a survey sent to student residents and staff, interviews with key campus partners and a review of the annual community-assessment survey. In addition, focus groups organized by functional areas were conducted in May 2013. The focus groups were open to all staff and were well attended.

In the context of the input from our multiple stakeholders, and taking into account the Chancellor’s growth plan for the campus, the Student Housing Leadership Team has prepared a plan that describes our mission, primary activities, key priorities, and strategic initiatives as we move forward over the next 3–5 years. This document will serve not only as a planning framework, but also as a reference point as we respond to shifting campus priorities and unanticipated needs.
