  1. Complete the development and implementation of the following major university planning initiatives:
    • Strategic Plan
    • Enrollment Management Plan
    • Facilities Master Plan
    • Information Technology Plan
  2. In conjunction with the major university planning initiatives, as well as divisional and unit plans, develop appropriate success metrics.
  3. Improve university-wide communications, transparency and inclusiveness within an enhanced shared governance environment.
  4. Recruit, develop, and retain highly qualified and diverse faculty and staff.

Each of the five divisions of the university and the various colleges, departments and administrative units has goals for 2012-2013.
