Strategic Planning Committee

Outcome 1

2004 Strategic Planning Outcome 1 Report

Engagement Activities

(number of feedback loops, sessions held, meetings, etc.)

At least 3 with the entire campus.  Outcome 1 committee initially met monthly at the end of 2003; once a draft was developed we “met” electronically to discuss and incorporate feedback into the profile.  First outline of the draft was presented to Faculty Org in January, 2004; second draft presented October 2004, again in November, 2004; final profile to Exec. Committee in January 2005 and to Faculty Org January 2005.

Number of People Responding

About 30 formally (in writing or via e-mail); several informally in discussions

Range of People Responding

(example:  students, faculty, staff, etc.)

Almost exclusively faculty other than the professional staff people on the committee; some student feedback via Student Services

Summary of Actual Outcome Achieved

Profile was developed; still needs work in my opinion to incorporate general education goals more thoroughly into the broader concepts of excellence. Feedback obtained from each constituent area (via Vice Chancellors) re: documentation of the role in creating the student profile from each area of responsibility.

Results of Outcome

Outcome was achieved; the importance of the profile should become clearer as general education goals are revised.  When that occurs, would suggest reworking of the profile to incorporate disparate ideas into one coherent profile.  Also, the profile will hopefully be used as a starting place for the work to be done on 2005 Outcomes 1 and 6.
