The goal of the Strategic Planning Committee is to conduct a strategic review of AILG operations, and of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats associated with the FSILG community at MIT; and to develop a 5-year Strategic Plan addressing the findings of this review.
Toward the end of the 2011-2012 academic year, each of the major governing groups presented the plan to their constituencies. The three undergraduate councils – the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the sorority’s Panhellenic Association, and the ILG’s Living Group Council – all endorsed the plan. The AILG, which represents all the FSILG alumni corporations, discussed it at the AILG Annual Meeting on June 13. The membership voted to support all the Themes, Initiatives, and Purpose of the plan, but requested changes to the wording in several places – especially to clarify the optional nature of many proposed activities. These corrections were made and the full plan was endorsed at the September AILG Plenary meeting in September.
In 2013, the focus has moved toward implementation and building the organization to implement the Plan, specifically on recruiting stakeholders as Initiative champions and Strategic Theme Teams members. As of the end of 2012, 16 of the 21 Initiatives had alumni or staff champions. Many also have student champions, and all of the undergraduate governing councils are actively recruiting for the Spring term.
The AILG Strategic Planning Steering Committee members are: Steve Baker ’84 (Chair), Bob Ferrara ’67 (DSL), David Hutchings ’10, Marlena Love (FSILG Office), Steve Stuntz ’67, and Sara Wilmer ’03.
