Strategic Plan Implementation

The Academic Affairs Strategic Planning (AASP) Committee completed their work during the spring 2021 semester with the finalization of the division's Mission, Vision and Values and the creation of three Strategic Goals.

Phase One

In May 2021, Phase One of AASP implementation began with the hiring of a part-time AASP Project Manager to guide and support the process of developing Objectives and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for each Strategic Goal. In an initial meeting with Academic Council in June 2021, the decision was made to allow the direct reports of the provost to create strategic goals and objectives for their units and submit them to the Provost Office by December 2021. The goals and objectives submitted were reviewed, themed and synthesized into divisional objectives. These objectives were brought before Academic Council for review and editing in the Spring 2022. Objectives were finalized for each of the Strategic Goals in May of 2022. 

With the hiring of the Associate Provost for Inclusive Strategies and Equity Initiatives (APISEI), the decision was made that leadership for the achievement of Strategic Goal 2 would be the responsibility of the new Associate Provost. In the summer and fall of 2022, the APISEI consulted with DEI leaders throughout the division to update Strategic Goal 2. The Academic Affairs Anti-Racist and Anti-Discrimination Agenda that was established in the Fall of 2020 was retired and replaced by a new Strategic Goal 2 and four new Objectives.

Phase Two

Phase Two of the AASP began August of 2022 at the Academic Council Sumer Retreat when members began drafting Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and Action Items. The Fall 2022 semester was spent working with members of Academic Council in small groups and collectively to develop and finalize the initial set of KPIs and Action Items. These will be shared with the division in early 2023. Work has begun to document measurement strategies and gather data to create KPI metric and Action Item visual displays. We will be creating and sharing provisional data displays in Spring 2023.
