by Walter V. Wendler, Ph.D., President at West Texas A&M University.
Strategic planning in higher education is an essential component for both universities and colleges, especially given state funding for higher education continues to decrease throughout the nation. Please join Dr. Walter V. Wendler, 11th President of West Texas A&M University, for an informative webinar regarding a different perspective about strategic planning and the process of using generational planning to develop a strategic plan.
Dr. Wendler was appointed president of WTAMU in September 2016. He is excited to be a part of the transformation occurring at the university. President Wendler understands the importance of strategic planning work and this webinar will share insights regarding his experiences and the strategic planning process currently underway, entitled WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World, where West Texas A&M will plan to attain doctoral status in the Carnegie classifications of universities as it celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2035. Prior to his WT presidency, Dr. Wendler served as chancellor from 2001-2007 at Southern Illinois University (SIU) Carbondale, vice chancellor for Planning and System Integration at The Texas A&M University System and executive assistant to the president at Texas A&M University where he was responsible for directing the institution’s strategic plan, entitled Vision 2020: Creating a Culture of Excellence.
We hope that you will join us!

Having the opportunity to speak in a confidential setting among professional colleagues is a valuable resource that has paid off tenfold.
As you know, higher education in 2016 is changing as rapidly as the amount of apps introduced to Apple on a daily basis, which, according to International Business Times, average about 1,000/day. How do we, as the executive support staff in colleges and universities, assist our presidents and institutions in this fast-paced and ever-changing environment without support? We don’t!
We have NAPAHE! NAPAHE is an organization consisting of individuals like yourself who come together to discuss best practices in higher education on an array of topics.
Are there times when you have questions about policies and processes on such topics as new technologies, Title IX, or presidential transitions? Are there also times when, quite honestly, you could use a life raft? If so, NAPAHE is for you! Support is always available either by phone, email or by meeting your colleagues at the annual NAPAHE National Conference in March. I encourage you to join NAPAHE and join us at the conference! You will be glad you did.
