Report to the President


Measures to ensure the institutionalization of rigorous planning, reporting, and assessment processes include, but are not limited to, the following actions:

  • Establish a review process whereby academic and administrative units undergo regular assessment of their purposes, effectiveness, and plans for the future. The process should include periodic external review, and funds should be committed to implement the most pressing changes arising from reviews.
  • Require that proposals for new programs or initiatives include metrics by which success will be measured over time.
  • Require that all units provide an articulation and assessment of major five-year goals as part of the annual planning process.
  • Establish a budgeting and budget review process that begins after the planning cycle is complete.
