Strategic Plan: Planning Teams
Strategic Planning Steering Committee (SPSC):
Brett Jones, Jerry Hembd, Liz Blue (CIPT), Faith Hensrud (CIPT Chair)
The role of this committee is to keep the strategic planning process moving forward by holding the research groups accountable and on task. The SPSC will work directly with our consultant, Dr. Steve Reno, and the Continuous Improvement and Planning Team (CIPT) to solicit broad campus and community input, as well as to develop the initiatives and goals for the Strategic Plan.
CIPT Strategic Planning Research Groups:
The eight research groups are supported by the Office of Institutional Research and draw upon numerous reports and planning documents to include (but not limited to): HLC Self-Study and Accreditation Report of the Higher Learning Commission, Huron Consulting Report, Making Excellence Inclusive Committee recommendations, Enrollment Reports, Inclusive Excellence, Strategic Planning Update from 2012, annual reports and planning documents, PBC Report, Academic Program Reviews, and numerous other resources used in our HLC Self-Study.
