Making Student Learning Count: Linking Assessment, Curricular Improvement, Program Review, and Strategic Planning

Implications of Strategic Planning Process on Meeting Needs for Students and Society

With shrinking budgets and increased demands for accountability, how do institutions plan, organize, and act to meet the needs of individual students today and the needs of society tomorrow? Should planning start with strategic planning, prioritization of academic and administrative programs or concurrent? What are the implications to program assessment and review? The purpose of this session is to engage participants in this so far inconclusive but critical issue towards a shared process.
