Strategic Planning Process: Presentation to the Senior Administrators Group February 13, 2014 The Office of Data Analytics and Institutional Research (DAIR)
Why? To develop a community consensus about and board support for University priorities over the next five years, as a guide to decision- making and allocation of resources This process will produce a strategic plan for AUC that: Sets out a clear framework for achieving AUC's institutional priorities over the next five to seven years; Enhances AUC's ability to raise and invest its resources to achieve its goals; Provides measures to monitor and assess progress and revise the plan as needed. Previous plan, Transforming AUC: , ended last year Where do we want to be in 2019, our 100 th anniversary?
The Process Designed to engage a wide range of stakeholders, be transparent, and provide accountability. A Steering Committee, composed of faculty and academic administrators, students, alumni, members of the administration and University trustees, will oversee the process and supervise work of task forces. Task forces will manage deliberations on strategic directions of the university. Task forces are expected to consult widely with relevant constituencies.
The Process Task force work should reflect AUCs mission, vision, values and institutional priorities. Task forces should consider the following questions in their deliberations: 1.Is it strategic? 2.Will it take advantage of our strengths? 3.Will it make us more distinctive? 4.Will it increase our competitiveness for attracting the best faculty, staff, and students? 5.What kinds of resources will it require? Task force reports will submit a short list of recommendations in May. A small working group will prepare the draft plan for approval by the Board of Trustees. Drafts will be circulated for feedback from the community. DAIR is supporting the work of the strategic planning process.
