Strategic Planning for SF State’s
Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies

 

Dear RTC Community and Stakeholders,

Below you will find the most recent draft of the RTC Strategic Plan, notes from strategic planning meetings, background reference materials that have informed our thinking and an online forum for providing ongoing input and exchange of ideas. This web page is a complement to the targeted stakeholder meetings we're holding where we gather in person feedback. We invite feedback from RTC faculty, staff and students as well as from our stakeholders at SF State, the RTC Advisory Board, the SF Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) and interested local community members. We created the RTC Strategic planning community blog for on the fly, in the moment, I just had an idea, darn I wish I had thought to say, etc. type of input. Your constructive feedback, comments, suggestions and ideas are encouraged and invited! Please CLICK HERE to go to our comments page.
