The 2016-18 Dr. Stirling McDowell Foundation for Research Into Teaching Strategic Plan approved in June of 2016 by the McDowell Board of Directors provides overall direction for the organization. The plan provides both a roadmap and clear targets for the organization that can be used for planning, reporting and evaluation.
Specifically, the plan outlines the mission, mandate and values of the Foundation along with organizational commitments to social justice, inclusion and equity, professional responsibility and responsible stewardship. In addition, four strategic priority areas were identified including: Research Program, Public Relations, Fiscal Sustainability and Governance.
Over the next three years, the Foundation will work towards these established goals.
