Strategic Planning 2012-2013
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
During the 2012-2013 academic year, members of the Strategic Planning Stewardship Team and members of the university community continued to work diligently on implementing the strategic initiatives outlined in the 2011-2014 Strategic Plan. In addition to facilitating the current strategies, the university was in the second year of converting the strategies to the Balanced Scorecard Strategic Planning and Performance Management System (BSC) framework as a way of defining, managing, and demonstrating the progress of meeting goals and objectives of the Strategic Plan. This newly adopted process enables the university to communicate the University’s vision, mission, and strategy by ensuring that all levels of the University align their focus on the same goals and objectives.
As you will see in the annual report, we have accomplished many goals, and we continue to work on the goals yet to be accomplished. We continue to identify and respond to external challenges and changing needs. We are also identifying new opportunities for growth in order to grow and prosper.
We hope that you will find the 2012-2013 Strategic Planning Status Report below informative. We also thank you, the university community, for your commitment and continued support of the strategic initiatives outlined in the report.
