Strategic Planning Blog update: October, 2013
Welcome back everyone to Malone University’s Strategic Planning blog!

Personally, I felt that last spring’s blog discussions were one of the most interesting, encouraging cross-campus, community experiences that I’ve had the opportunity to participate in over my five years here at Malone. Perhaps an ancient king’s observation might help us to find the time and motivation in our busy schedules to support this blog initiative once again:
Folly brings joy to one who has no sense,
but whoever has understanding keeps a straight course.
Plans fail for lack of counsel,
but with many advisers they succeed. (Prov. 15:21-22)
