The University Planning Council requests input from the Northeastern State Community in identifying potential new University Action Projects. University Action Projects fully support the Mission, Vision, Values and Strategic Goals of the University. They require a high level of commitment from our leadership and form multiple organizations across the university.
There are several ways to provide input. One approach is to make a recommendation or provide input through representatives of Faculty Council, Student Government Association (Broken Arrow and Tahlequah), Staff Council, Chair Council, or Academic Council – this is the suggested approach. A second option is for other University organizations or individuals to submit a proposal by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Projects will be evaluated and selected in a joint meeting of the University Planning
Council and the Cabinet based on the following criteria:
The following statement, located on the NSU website under Mission, Vision and Values - Strategic Plan – Overview provides some background for this request.
Last year, university-wide priorities were identified, guided by the goals and pursued by teams that represented a cross-section of our University community. These priorities have been operationalized through the development of University Action Projects, which are being implemented through the efforts of individual action teams. The University Planning Council monitors implementation and provides a central focus for evaluating progress on existing projects, and for identifying and prioritizing potential new projects. In 2012, the Council will update current action projects and evaluate new potential action projects for future action. In this way, we intend to make this document a living, breathing plan which is reviewed and adjusted annually and pursued consistently.
Currently, there are twelve University Action Projects, which are located in the Mission, Vision and Values – Strategic Plan section of the NSU website. These projects are also linked to each of our Strategic Goals.
Proposals (or questions) should be emailed to Dave Kern no later than April 15, using the University Action Project Proposal form (docx). You may also contact a member of the University Planning Council:
