Strategic planning process 2014 2019

  • 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: 2011-2013”, ended last year

  • Where do we want to be in 2019, our 100th anniversary?

The process
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 process1
The Process

  • Task force work should reflect AUC’s mission, vision, values and institutional priorities.

    • Task forces should consider the following questions in their deliberations:

      • Is it strategic?

      • Will it take advantage of our strengths?

      • Will it make us more distinctive?

      • Will it increase our competitiveness for attracting the best faculty, staff, and students?

      • 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.
