AUC: Catalyst for Change Planning and Budgeting for Integrated Planning Committee Tuesday, September 11, 2012
AUCs Institutional Priorities Education for Citizenship and Service –We believe that a sound education not only prepares students for professional success but also for responsible citizenship and community engagement. The liberal arts tradition, with its emphasis on the broad education of a common core curriculum and the experiential learning of rich extracurricular programs, strengthens the curiosity and courage of AUC graduates, and promotes civic participation.
AUCs Institutional Priorities Research Reflecting Innovation and Impact –AUC is a source of insight and inspiration in many fields, and we expect our faculty and students to participate in scientific, scholarly or artistic production. We particularly emphasize those domains in which there is the prospect of a tangible effect on the development of disciplinary knowledge or the enhancement of societal welfare.
AUCs Institutional Priorities Outreach Enhancing Engagement and Access –We are dedicated to serving communities in Egypt and around the world through extension and outreach programs that bring University expertise and insight to a wider public, that profit from our convening power, and that serve to inform and enlighten public discourse, enhance access to information and knowledge, and enrich artistic and intellectual life.
AUCs Institutional Priorities Management with Sustainability and Integrity –We are committed to managing the operations of the University so as to reflect and foster the values we teach our students and expect in our faculty and wish to exemplify in Egypt. Our institutional practices should exhibit a commitment to environmental, social and fiscal responsibility, and we should observe the highest standards of integrity in the workplace and in our dealings with vendors, clients, and other constituents.

STRATEGIC PLANNING AND INCENTIVES FOR CHANGE
Strategic Planning Next three years austerity, moving to breakeven Need to focus on quality, effectiveness, improvements in efficiency of operations Budget your plan, not plan your budget –Start with your strategic plan. What do you need to achieve plan? How can you shift resources to achieve goals?
Planning Matrix New initiatives only in academic area, according to Provosts plan. –Planning matrix closed to new initiatives, including new capital equipment –Self-funded activities allowed –Enter HR requirements, including tuition remission benefit No new staff requests May re-allocate within current operational budgets Keep capital replacements to a minimum
Strategic Planning Review your operations to see where you can grow/improve without additional resources: –Curriculum Still relevant? Duplication? Enrollment, number of sections right-size? Do courses reflect new developments in field? –Assessment Are students learning what they should? –Advising and Registration Does it work in your department? Is the process student-centered? –Alumni Who are they? Where? Do they know what youre doing? Are they involved in your department? –Industry Same as above –Collaboration Do you? How can you increase within/between department(s)? –Work Processes Duplication? Can you reduce steps? Bureaucracy? Can you improve customer/student service? What kinds of training do staff need?
Incentives for Change Unit heads encouraged to consider how to improve effectiveness and achieve savings. Formation of revenue-sharing committee, will be recommending proposals in this area
