Strategic Planning Council
The University’s Strategic Planning Council (SPC) is the University’s advisory body on strategic planning. The SPC brings together representatives of various constituencies to promote a broader consideration of campus-wide strategic initiatives of major scope and importance that often include more than one division.
The strategic planning efforts addressed by the SPC will be shared with the University’s constituencies through the members. Wherever feasible and timely, the work of the SPC will be integrated with existing planning processes in the University divisions and organizational units.
The SPC will support the University with the development and adoption of the university’s new strategic plan, UM 2020. The SPC will facilitate the planning process by:
- analyzing institutional data and collecting input from the university community,
- monitoring and reviewing the institution’s mission and vision, core values,
- assessing the institution’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, and
- renewing the university’s strategic planning framework including UM’s strategic priorities and university-wide goals.
The Strategic Planning Council, chaired by an Associate Provost, includes a representative from Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Multicultural Affairs, and Research.
In addition, two representatives from the Dean’s Council, one Department Chair, the presidents of the Associated Student Body and Graduate Student Council, a representative of the Staff Council, and six representatives from the Faculty Senate serve as voting members of the SPC.
A representative from the following planning/infrastructure related positions are represented as (non-voting) ex-officio members, including: International Affairs, Outreach and Continuing Studies, Information Technology, Strategic Planning, Institutional Research, Facilities Planning, Human Resources, Physical Plant, Development, University Libraries, and the institution’s SACSCOC liaison.
