Historical Information for RIT Libraries 2005-2010 Strategic Plan (Collapse)

In 2004, Rochester Institute of Technology began work on a campus-wide strategic plan, Category of One University: Uniquely Blending Academic Programs with Experiential Learning for Student Success. To coincide with the greater university strategic plan, the Wallace Library created its own proposal based on the question, "What can we do to improve library service for the university community?" Meetings began in July, and staff identified four directions to meet the goal:

  1. Increase support of undergraduate education and student success
  2. Increase support for graduate research
  3. Increase support for faculty scholarship
  4. Establish the Wallace Library as a center for RIT culture and information services

To address these four goals, library staff was divided into 4 workgroups, each tasked with gathering information from other universities, libraries, and the RIT community. Hundreds of faculty, staff, alumni, and students were interviewed. Additionally, staff forums were held for input and feedback on the final proposal, Creating the Category of One University (C1U) Library: 2005-2010, A Strategic Plan. In February 2005, plan objectives began to be implemented.

VHS and DVDs regarding the 2004 proposal Creating the Category of One University (C1U) Library: 2005-2010, A Strategic Plan. This proposal was created by RIT Libraries to coincide with the greater RIT university strategic plan.

Filmed VHS footage includes four fact-finding teams related to the stated goals for improving library services in these areas:

  1. Undergraduate student success
  2. Graduate research
  3. Faculty scholarship
  4. Cultural and information center.

RIT Libraries also held two open staff forums (November 30 and December 1, 2004) for questions and comments on the plan. Forums were moderated by Library Director Chandra McKenzie, and are covered on two DVDs. The first forum is also available in VHS.
