Although continuous, the cycle logically begins with strategic planning. This activity will be the responsibility and focus of The University Planning Committee.
The first priority of the University Planning Committee was to produce The University of Montana's Strategic Plan. Publication was scheduled and completed in Spring 2011. In addition, Committee will coordinate with the University Assessment Committee annually, ensuring that the priorities identified in the Strategic Plan and those documented in the Core Themes (as required under Standard 1 of the NWCCU accreditation process) are consistent and linked.
Long term, the University Planning Committee will provide guidance to planning units of the University regarding standards for sector or unit plans, and will identify annual and biennial planning priorities. The Committee will review and update the University Strategic Plan annually, in light of environmental changes, institutional assessment, and campus input.
