Strategic Planning within Academic Affairs

On May 9, 2008, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Sandra M. Flake, released the CSU, Chico Academic Plan, 2007-2012.  In an accompanying memo, she wrote "This Academic Plan provides an initial roadmap for our journey to excellence in instruction, research, creative activity, and public service.  In it, we identify five Academic Affairs goals and associated strategies by which we support the University's strategic priorities.  We expect to realize these goals within the next five years, that is, by the time of the University's 125th anniversary, recognizing that the pace at which we progress will depend on a number of factors, including committed leadership and the availability of resources."

Next, she launched the development of measures by which we can annually report progress.  The first measures will be the baselines from which we start. "Each fall semester I will share with you an Academic Plan Report in which I will report to you the progress we, as an academic community, have made on implementing the goals of the Academic Plan."
