Charge of the Committee

As set forth in the Strategic Plan Policy, the charge of the committee is to:

  • review of the university mission and vision statements; and
  • oversee the strategic planning process including development of a 5-year strategic plan and a cycle for implementation.

In addition, to facilitate an effective implementation of the strategic plan, following approval by the Board of Trustees of the 5-year strategic plan, the full Committee will typically meet twice annually to review the annual status and the results of annual assessment efforts. An Executive Committee consisting of the Provost, Vice President for Business Affairs and Treasurer, Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs/Dean of Students, Assistant Provost, Director of Institutional Planning and Assessment, and two other members elected by the full Committee, will meet more frequently in order to fulfill the Committees responsibilities.
