Strategic Planning and Budget Committee Draft Charter - August 24, 2016
There are no documents for this period.
Our primary goal for the year is to consider and act so as to enhance mission success. Within that broader goal we hope to work to:
- Increase our institution’s capability to deliver student facing, operational resources and services to students, enhancing their ability to succeed.
- Use data driven decision making to serve the students we admit, enhancing their ability to succeed.
- Develop the student’s experience base enhancing their ability to succeed.
Enrollment Study Group Report
In fall 2011, UB President Robert L. Bogomolny charged an Enrollment Study Group with examining and defining the "profile" of UB's current student body and its future student body. The goal was to determine what future UB students will need to achieve success and what UB can do to anticipate those needs. In March 2013, the group released a report (accessible on the T drive to faculty and staff at T:/Enrollment_Study_Group_Report) containing a set of recommendations on pp. 124-127 (within section 16 of the report). If student leaders would like to review a copy of the full report, please contact your Student Government Association representatives.
DRAFT Academic Plan
The Academic Plan (draft document) was created by the academic deans and is currently under review for comment and potential revision in each of the faculty senates. The University Faculty Senate anticipates receiving comments and having a discussion leading to a potential endorsement of the plan at its March meeting. That discussion will begin at the February University Faculty Senate meeting. The Academic Plan is expected by the leadership of the University's strategic planning efforts to play an integral role in formulating the University's Strategic Plan.
Law School Reuse Space Planning
This plan was presented to the UB community during a town hall, hosted by the Office of the President and the Governance Steering Council, on Wednesday, Feb. 13. Units impacted by this plan will be contacted by the Office of Facilities Management and Capital Planning as the scope of work, budget and implementation schedule are developed.
