Moving Forward: The Next 3 Years
This document briefly describes the strategic plan for the ISSP. This plan is intended to guide the ISSP leadership, including its Committees and Task Forces, in translating the Society’s core ideology, outlined below, into action. We recognize that strategic plans are context-dependent. In this document, we articulate specific goals for the ISSP that we anticipate will assist in guiding the college over the upcoming years.

More frequently, the Society will need to reevaluate the success of its strategies in enabling the Society to achieve its stated goals and introduce necessary amendments.
