Establishing ACP's Strategy and Priority Initiatives for FY 2014-15
The College’s annual process for establishing priority initiatives 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 for ACP in order to guide the management of ACP 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 assesses the environment and progress toward previous initiatives, and establishes priorities for the next fiscal year. Participants in the planning retreat include the BOR, Executive Committee Board of Governors, Senior Staff, the Immediate Past President and Immediate Past Chair of the BOR.
ACP Staff is responsible for developing implementation plans and focusing resources on the College’s priority initiatives, with input from the BOR’s committees and councils.
