Provost Launches Academic Strategic Compass Website

On April 30, the Office of the Provost launched the Academic Strategic Compass as a website.

This might seem to be a minor publicity moment—but it is actually part of the development process, I learned after meeting with Provost Lisa Staiano-Coico and with Senior Faculty Advisor Betsy Leebron-Tutelman. In keeping with the change from “strategic plan” to “strategic compass,” the website is designed to gather information, including suggestions from faculty, and to track the progress of initiatives.

Provost Lisa emphasized that the use of the (anonymous) suggestions drop box on the web has already “helped us take a critical look at current programs in terms of efficiency.” The website will be updated periodically and already includes outcome measures for the past two years. –The Editor
