In the summer of 2018, the Center began a strategic planning process to address the changing landscape of the Center's membership and research programs. To kick off the strategic planning process, a survey was distributed and an all-Center retreat was held to gather input and feedback on the main goals of the Center.

A committee structure was subsequently adopted to manage the various activities and needs of the Center.
Since summer 2018, the SEC has been meeting monthly and working with Executive Coach Donna Rawady to draft a strategic plan. A CMSR Retreat was held on August 25, 2022 to provide an update to and solicit feedback from Center faculty on the drafted strategic plan. Committee updates are also being provided on a regular basis at the Friday morning PI meetings:
