Harvey, Dean Amy Hardison Tully and Deputy Athletic Director Ryan Peck have been appointed as Co-Chairs, and Dr. Susan Weeks is our Core Strategy Team Project Manager.
 
The team will work closely with members of the President's Cabinet and an advisory council of student, faculty, staff and alumni governance leaders, and has already begun to reach out to faculty, students, staff, alumni, employers, Trustees and the broader Fort Worth community to engage in workshops and listening sessions around four strategic pillars:

Vision in Action: Lead On

TCU’s growth in size and national presence has been guided by our current strategic plan, Vision in Action: Lead On. Adopted in 2017, the plan includes four goals centered on: 1) strengthening the academic profile and reputation; 2) strengthening the endowment; 3) strengthening the TCU experience and campus culture; and 4) strengthening the workforce: both employees and graduates.
