University Planning Committee
The University Planning Committee serves as an advisory committee to the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. The UPC offers input to the University-wide institutional effectiveness and planning processes, in accordance with the University’s Planning & Institutional Effectiveness Model. The UPC is responsible for recommending annual planning objectives as part of the implementation of the University’s strategic plan; reviewing and summarizing annual progress of the strategic plan; and monitoring the progress of planning and institutional effectiveness activities at other levels that support the strategic plan.
The UPC provides input to the University’s overall institutional effectiveness agenda. The UPC considers, endorses, and makes recommendations related to strategic, tactical, and other significant planning initiatives, and may establish ad hoc committees where needed to facilitate University planning.
For the course of the 2014-2015 academic year, the University Planning Committee will serve in a special capacity as the University’s Strategic Plan Steering Committee. The UPC will coordinate the development and implementation of the University’s strategic plan for 2015-2020.
