Has the institution adopted a framework for community stakeholder engagement in governance, strategy and operations?:

A brief description of the policies and procedures that ensure community stakeholder engagement is applied systematically and regularly across the institution’s activities:

Community stakeholders are involved in the Stakeholder visioning session, held once every 5 years as part of the development of a new strategic plan. In small groups, they are asked to provide ideas for what Stout might look like in the next 5-7 years. Community stakeholders are also included in various Stout committees and advisory boards. UW-Stout faculty/staff also have membership on various community committees, organizations, and boards.
