Abstract

As we approach the midpoint of Lesley University’s strategic planning process, Lesley 2030, our goal is to reflect upon and explore the influence of community engagement on institutional identity and development. For over 100 years, the Lesley community has embraced Edith Lesley’s inspirational talent for identifying a need or an opportunity, and her passion for crafting something new in response. Building upon her legacy, we aim to recapture our institutional dedication to innovation and practicing social change by finding new and effective ways of developing, conveying and applying knowledge to address the current sociopolitical state of our local, national and global communities. Active, university-wide collaboration, and bringing together diverse identities, experiences, and perspectives from the Lesley community, adds significant value to the strategic planning efforts and initiatives. Furthermore, this communal work provides an opportunity to surface groundbreaking ideas and create new opportunities, and examine and adjust current practices so we can ensure that we are well-positioned to meet the needs that will exist in an age of constant change. We hope to share the emerging contours of the strategic plan as well as our reflections from our continued work with all members from the Lesley community.
