Additional Goal Objectives

These initiatives will be tackled by specific operational units and will not call for action groups to be formed:

Leverage the capacity of our existing analytics resources to develop a culture of data informed decision-making and assessment by

  • introducing all college academic data dashboard to deans, associate deans, and department chairs; and
  • identifying ways in which the data dashboard can be used to make informed decisions at the departmental, school, and college levels.

Develop a comprehensive enrollment strategy that is inclusive and financially sustainable and transforms our student body by creating

  • a brand platform and
  • a working group to look at increasing transfer enrollments.
