Planning Committee

Established 8 April 2004

The Strategic Planning process that began in 2012 established principles and processes for ensuring the University’s excellence. The Faculty Senate takes a particular interest in assuring the excellence of the University and its programs through sound academic planning, administrative restructuring and private philanthropy, especially in essential areas that transcend the interests of the individual schools.

Membership

At least seven members appointed by the Executive Council. The chair of the committee is a member of the Executive Council.

Standing Charge

To consult with the Senior Vice Provost for Strategic Planning, the Executive Vice President and Provost, the Senior Vice President for University Advancement, the President, and other Vice Presidents concerning academic plans and philanthropic goals and priorities, especially pan-University initiatives; to marshal faculty resources to assist the University toward realizing its strategic planning goals; and to act as a faculty liaison for aligning planning goals and fund-raising initiatives to the Office of the Provost and the Office of University Development.

For 2013-14, the Planning Committee will work closely with the Senior Vice Provost for Strategic Planning to identify faculty-initiated programs and policies that can support the Strategic Plan’s ongoing process. As appropriate, we will develop and recommend programs and policies for adoption at the Department, School and University level.
