Strategic Planning at ACP for FY 2013-14
The College’s annual strategic planning process is guided by the following three principles:
- The Board of Regents (BOR), based on input from important constituencies and sources, establishes the outcomes for which management is accountable, and through its Financial Policy and Audit Committee, specifies the financing needs and mechanisms by which management will achieve these outcomes.
- Management designs and implements programs, products, policies and services (PPPS) as the means to achieve the outcomes established by the BOR and is evaluated annually based on criteria set by the BOR.
- Committees and councils provide advice and support to management on the design, implementation and evaluation of PPPSs.
The goal of the College’s annual planning is to establish and convey the BOR’s priorities, expected outcomes, and evaluation criteria for ACP in order to guide the management of ACP, ACP Foundation, and ACP Services as they design, fund, and implement PPPSs during the upcoming fiscal year.
To accomplish this goal, the BOR holds an annual planning retreat during which it reviews the environment, assesses progress, and updates the strategic plan. Participants in the planning retreat include the BOR, Executive Committee Board of Governors, Senior Staff, ACP Foundation Board of Trustees Chair and Program Committee Chair, ACP Services Leadership, the Immediate Past President and Immediate Past Chair, Board of Regents.
ACP Staff is responsible for implementing the strategic plan, with input from the BOR’s committees and councils.
