Goals in Student Affairs stem from the mission of the University, are carried out in the context of our vision, mission and core values, and provide direction for the division for the long term. Annually, the Student Affairs Leadership Team, under the direction of the Steering Committee chaired by the Vice President of Student Affairs, reviews and determines strategic objectives and strategies that reflect a broad array of student learning and development outcomes, as well as a spectrum of operational excellence initiatives in keeping with the standards of excellence in our field. Funding requests are considered and approved by the Steering Committee on a rolling basis.
Each strategic objective is carried out by an inter-departmental Strategy Team chaired by a Student Affairs leader. Most Strategy Teams also include membership from outside of Student Affairs. Each fall, Strategy Teams clarify their strategic objective, identify performance measures, and create an action plan that includes timeline and budget. These documents are managed internally in the division’s CampusLabs Compliance Assist software. An updated report regarding progress will be posted to the web in December and May each year.
