University Planning Committee


The University Planning Committee (UPC) conducts research and provides informed strategic perspectives to ensure planning reflects the institutional vision, current trends in higher  ducation, market forces, and workforce needs. In partnership with the Priority for Action teams, the UPC refreshes annually UM’s Priority for Action strategies to maintain alignment with and progress toward the institutional vision. The UPC also performs data analyses that help to inform the alignment of resources with the institution’s Strategic direction.
