Benefits

The compact process can increase the trust and shared goals among colleges/units and between colleges/units and the administration.

The process is one of cooperation, negotiation, and information sharing, where each person in an organization becomes a stakeholder in its unit's compact.

All compacts are public documents, there are no hidden agendas or investments, further heightening trust and accountability.

The compact process can be extremely helpful in the public accountability realm.

The compact process can be used to help establish priorities for a major capital campaign.

Benefits

The compact agreements impose obligations on both sides, building relationships that are more horizontal, cooperative, and reciprocal, rather than hierarchical. It is both bottom up and top down.

The inherent flexibility of the process means we look for ways to strengthen the alignment of service units with the University's academic mission.

The compact process integrates planning, budgeting, and assessment to improve academic and service programs at the University.

The compact process can be used to further the long-range capital improvement plan and the university master plan.
