After several months of work, details of a Binghamton University strategic plan will be released Monday.

The "Road Map" implementation launch event is to be held in the Mandela Room of the University Union on the Vestal campus starting at 4 p.m.

Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program Friday, university president Harvey Stenger said about 400 volunteers were involved in developing the plan.

Faculty, staff, students, area residents and alumni contributed to the process. Weekly meetings of nine teams were held in recent months.

Stenger said the strategic plan that's emerged will focus on five priorities. He said the top priority will involve the university's graduate education research and scholarship programs.

The president said it'll be an "exciting unwrapping" of the plan at Monday's event, which will be open to the public.

Stenger said the "Road Map" goal is to move Binghamton toward becoming the "premier public university" in the years ahead.

Stenger said the launch of such a plan is critical to developing momentum to move toward achieving its goals.

Several hundred people are expected to attend Monday's launch of the Binghamton University "Road Map."
