Strategic Planning Update
Provost Pallavicini reviewed the four phases of the strategic planning process that has resulted in the development of six strategies. SPC is currently gathering input from students, faculty, staff, alumni and other stakeholders on these strategies. A Regents' retreat on strategic planning will occur in mid-April. The goal is to have the strategic plan and implementation process in place by fall 2012.
Update on WASC EER Visit
Members of IPC will meet with WASC team members Andrew Benton, President of Pepperdine University, and Joanna Coville, CFO of Scripps College, on April 3. Klunk reviewed budget related topics the WASC team members might want to probe more deeply. Brodnick will develop a site for the WASC team containing documents and other information relating to the budget process and IPC.
FY14/15 Planning and Budget Letter
The President's Cabinet will review and develop strategic goals for FY14 and FY15. It was suggested that the budget request evaluation rubric be revised to provide greater emphasis on alignment with strategic goals.
It was agreed that development of the FY14 budget will follow the existing model. Development of the FY15 budget will begin to incorporate elements of the new budget model. The revised budget model will be fully implemented in the development of the FY16 budget.
President Eibeck suggested that following Regent approval there should be a joint presidential/IPC announcement regarding the FY13 budget to the campus community.
