  • the importance of fairness, honesty, integrity, trustworthiness, and ethical behavior in our actions, relationships, and in the performance of business activity

Strategic Planning Council & Operating Procedures

The Strategic Planning Council (SPC) is the steward and voice of the College’s strategic direction. The SPC should provide a long-term perspective for the College and serves as an advisory body to the Dean and COB Council. Its recommendations are subject to approval by the COB Council and Dean. Following approval, the recommendations will be used to aid and evaluate College, departmental, and program initiatives and resource allocations.

The duties of the SPC include:

  1. Establish and lead inclusive practices for regularly developing and updating the strategic direction of the College
  2. Establish procedures within the College for members of the College to propose strategic initiatives
  3. Evaluate strategic initiative proposals according to set criteria and recommend to the Dean and COB Council whether proposals should be supported/funded
  4. Report its activities and outcomes to the Faculty, College, and standing committees periodically
  5. Prepare a written annual report summarizing the activities and outcomes for the academic year

The Strategic Planning Council consists of the Dean, the Assistant Dean or Director of Undergraduate Programs, the Assistant Dean or Director of Graduate Programs, one Dean’s Advisory Council member (appointed by the Dean), one faculty representative from the Business Centers (appointed by the Dean), one faculty representative (elected), one representative from central administration, and the Associate Dean. The Dean can appoint ex-officio (nonvoting) members as needed. Elected SPC members shall serve a three-year term.
