Planning Preparation Form

Faculty and staff should use the Planning Preparation Form when presenting new initiatives. This form is to serve as a guide to ensure an alignment of initiatives and substantive activities with institutional priorities. By using benchmarks, goals, qualitative assessment measures, and the College mission as a standard, the institution will support thoughtful, reflective, and relevant planning. It is expected that this form will be brought to each area VP for discussion, clarification, and approval consideration.

Instructional assessment is guided by individual school planning, regional and discipline-specific accreditation standards, and Academic Affairs priorities (which are aligned with institutional priorities, as well as divisional priorities identified by Deans Council, Faculty Senate, and the varied Faculty Senate committees). The Associate VP for Academic Affairs coordinates over-arching assessment activities, provides tracking and reporting mechanisms, and identifies / offers training and professional development opportunities based on recommendations from the deans, Assessment Committee, the Academic Affairs / institutional planning process, school priorities and accrediting requirements. The dean of each school provides oversight of program level assessment activities in coordination with the Office of Academic Affairs.
