The University Planning Group engages in relevant, timely and ongoing
dialogue, among representatives of the various constituencies of the University,
regarding subjects essential to the present state and future planning of
the institution. As an essential component of this process, the University
Planning Group sponsors the creation of a three to five year strategic
plan relevant to all departments and divisions of the University. The committee
oversees the implementation, assessment and modification of this plan based
upon a continuing analysis of the University's internal and external environment.
The University Planning Group reports its findings and makes its recommendations
to the President of the University and, through him and through the Academic
Affairs and Planning Committee, to the Board of Directors.
