Advisory Council for Strategic Planning

Led by the Elmhurst University Advisory Council for Strategic Planning (ACSP), the strategic plan process began in the summer of 2022 as faculty, staff, administrators, trustees, students, alumni and community members came together to address our needs and wants, to debate options, and to prioritize next steps.

The process was designed to be collaborative and inclusive, providing many opportunities and platforms for our constituents to contribute. The ACSP represents each of the University constituencies, including faculty, Board of Trustees, Student Government Association, alumni, staff and administration.
