Dr. Dave Weatherspoon, vice provost of enrollment and academic strategic planning, is leading academic strategic implementation initiatives. Supporting his team are a number of Key Advisors
. As part of this process, groups have been charged by the Office of the Provost to focus on implementation and engagement efforts. Each group, the Deans Group, and the Vice Provosts, Associate Deans, Assistant Deans, and unit leaders (APAAD) group, has been working through academic strategic plan implementation and engaging the broader audiences within the Office of the Provost and academic units.
The Office of the Provost is an executive co-sponsor of three strategic themes at the university level
: Student Success, Staff and Faculty Success, and Creativity and Innovation for Excellence and Global Impact.
Collectively we plan to initiate an open, inclusive process and seek collaborators across campus that are within co-executive sponsor sectors. Although we are currently in different phases, we will be engaging with one another, and among the key audiences we serve, as we progress though this initiative. We will work together to identify strategies and prioritize initiatives, refine metrics and facilitate data collection and reporting. As things evolve, we'll develop ways to consistently communicate our progress and interact with the Strategic Plan Implementation Steering Committee.
