The Strategic Plan Oversight Committee (SPOC) plays a key role in guiding and assessing
Institutional Effectiveness by ensuring that the Strategic Plan is implemented and
assessed through monitoring the action plans and assessments of the all Divisions
and Units. The committee provides a hub for distribution of responsibility, coordination
of efforts, communication, and, as a result, the sustainability of data-driven planning
and improvement across all levels and divisions of the University.
The SPOC is charged with: 1) receiving and evaluating annual reports and assessment
plans from Divisions and Colleges (including non-academic units) and relevant requests
or recommendations from the University Curriculum Committee, Outcomes Assessment Committee,
Academic Affairs Assessment Committee, and Administration, 2) producing a yearly report
on progress towards implementation of the Strategic Plan and attainment of goals as
they relate to the University Mission, 3) making recommendations for implementation
of the Strategic Plan goals back to responsible units and forward to the President’s
Cabinet, and 4) making recommendations for revisions of the Strategic Plan.
Frequency of Meetings:
The SPOC meets monthly or as needed. Analyses of Divisional and Unit reports will
begin during early Fall of each year with reports and recommendations to the Administration
submitted by October 15.
