Committee Charge

The integrated strategic planning process is designed to help the university implement its mission and chart a course for the future. Strategic planning that is aligned with the mission and drives the budget is essential and critical for continued growth and allows us to achieve our institutional priorities.

The Strategic Planning Core Team (SPCT) provides oversight, coordination, and campus leadership for strategic planning that aligns budget, assessment and planning to focus on the campus priorities and goals.  The Core Team will:

  • Ensure that the development and implementation of strategic planning and budgeting are transparent, inclusive and streamlined.
  • Recommend both annual and long-term institutional priorities including those priorities related to our Mission, UW System's Strategic Priorities, and accreditation criteria.
  • Ensure that the budget is aligned with the mission.
  • Monitor, review, and assess progress on the plan to secure the future of UW-Superior.
  • Communicate progress to the campus community.
