Lehigh University (Lehigh University Art Galleries)

Log Number: MA-40-19-0275-19

The Lehigh University Art Galleries will initiate staff-wide learning in strategic thinking to maximize their impact for the diverse communities that they serve. With the guidance of an external consulting firm, the staff will build competency in strategic thinking, including the use of outcomes-based tools and approaches that align activities with impact. Staff members will participate in immersive knowledge-building workshops, group and individual practice exercises, study trips to nearby institutions, visits with invited guest experts, and ongoing self-assessment. The project will result in a new strategic plan for the galleries that aligns with the larger goals of Lehigh University and includes measurable outcomes and a plan for continuous improvement. To measure success, an external evaluator will conduct a baseline evaluation, a mid-process evaluation, and a summative evaluation at the close of the project.
