DENVER - University of Denver Vice Chancellor for Athletics and Recreation and Ritchie Center Operations, Peg Bradley-Doppes, released the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan on Thursday. The new five-year plan will go into effect for the upcoming academic year.
The plan is part of the Division of Athletics and Recreation's mission to provide athletic, recreational and entertainment opportunities that meet the needs of students, faculty, staff, alumni and the Denver community.
In 2017, Denver will be celebrating its 150th anniversary of athletics and is the optimal time to introduce the Division's third Strategic Plan. The plan looks to align with the institution's overall strategic plan - DU IMPACT 2025.
