By way of background, some things have changed since our previous plan, but others have remained the same. For example, all seven of the major goals of the 2005-2008 plan have been retained, with minor editing of Goal Four, while an eighth goal encouraging civic engagement has been added in this new strategic plan. Even though seven of the goals have remained the same as in the previous plan, our objectives, methods and success criteria for those goals have been updated and strengthened.
