Stop by the Plaza to help Re-Envision CSU on May 5

“Create web maps that identify where CSU is making contributions across the international community.”

“Build shelters for some Around the Horn stops.”

“Increase the dependent tuition scholarship. “

“Increase cultural competency training opportunities.”

“Raise the minimum wage for student employees to $12/hour”

“Better WiFi.”

These are just a few of the hundreds of ideas to improve Colorado State University that members of the campus community have submitted through Re-Envision Colorado State, an initiative designed to supplement institutional strategic planning and look beyond facts and figures to re-envision what the university can be and how it will continue to thrive for the next century and a half.

Through Re-Envision Colorado State, President Tony Frank invited the entire CSU community to share their ideas, both big and small, on how the university can be improved. The Re-Envision CSU process was launched by President Frank in his 2015 Fall Address to the University and is being led by CSU Faculty Council, Classified Personnel Council, Administrative Professional Council, and ASCSU. This leadership team has engaged the Center for Public Deliberation to help guide the campus discussion and solicit ideas and opinions over the coming months.

Ideas online or in person

Re-Envision ideas can be submitted any time online, or in person on May 5, 11 a.m-1 p.m., at the Re-Envision table on the Lory Student Center Plaza. KCSU-FM will be on hand to help promote the event with great music and cool giveaways.

The Re-Envision effort is currently in its first of three phases, focusing on discovery and listening. Phase Two will focus on reflection, analysis, and prioritization. Phase Three will focus on planning, budgeting, and implementation.

It is important to note that this is not a strategic planning exercise. The charge is to re-envision, re-imagine, and re-invent aspects of CSU. So whether you would like to see more smart classrooms, a sliding scale for parking permits, or smaller class sizes, submit your idea today.
