Stages of the Planning Process
Stage 1: A Review of the Center's Mission, Program, and Values
The group will review and agree on the mission, program, and values of the Center. It will be important to consider the Center's mission, vision, and values relative to the University mission statement, and the plans and goals of the University, Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs, and deans' offices.
Target date: complete by August 1st, 2004
Stage 2: An Analysis of the Center's Work, Infrastructure, and Connections
The group, with a view toward the future, will discuss a broad range of topics relative to the actual work of the Center, including:
- programmatic aspects (e.g., initiatives, projects, workshops)
- infrastructure (e.g., staff, technology, other resources)
- connections to and collaboration with other campus offices, committees, and people (e.g., Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, deans' offices, University Faculty Development Committee, Institutional Advancement, Educational Technology Specialist).
A SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis will be important at this stage.
Target date: complete by October 1st, 2004
Stage 3: A Plan for the Center's Future
The group will flesh out the details of an implementation plan that will enable the Center to achieve its mission and vision. The implementation plan will include an assessment strategy that will allow the Center to measure the extent to which it has succeeded in implementing the plan, achieving its mission, and realizing its vision.
Target date: complete by December 1st, 2004
