a. Each spring, the Strategic Planning Committee will determine, via meetings with individual units
and campus-wide forums, which initiatives the university community believes should be moved from the
list of possibilities generated during the university-wide strategic-planning process during AY 2010-11 to
the active list for the following fiscal year; it will also consider additions to the campus list. It will
incorporate the results of this discovery process – along with assessment results and other information –
in its recommendations to SPARC and the president.
b. The Strategic Planning Committee will prepare a written report for the Strategic Planning and
Resources Council by September 15 of each year. This report – based on the campus discovery process
(see item b above), the information contained in the Institutional Report Card presented to the Board of
Trustees at their August meeting, and other appropriate inputs – will assess the university’s progress on
the various strategic initiatives contained in the Strategic Plan and recommend further action on those
initiatives or, upon completion of those initiatives, recommend the adoption of new initiatives from the
lists generated during the university-wide strategic-planning process during AY 2010-11 as updated in the
annual campus discovery process. This report will serve as a source of information for the Strategic
Planning and Resource Council when it makes its October 1 report to the Faculty Senate, Staff Senate,
and Student Government Association; and for the Strategic Budgeting Advisory Committee when that
group makes its budget considerations and recommendations to the university president in December.
a. The SPC will meet at least once per month from September through August of the following year.

votes may be taken by written proxy (including email) if necessary.
c. The meeting schedule for every year will be established in September and the schedule will be
announced to the university community using whatever communication means are considered most likely
to reach the broadest possible university audience.
