Student Affairs Key Activities

In 2014-2015, Student Affairs began a process of developing key activities to reflect the values of the existing Student Affairs Strategic Plan while also allowing for more modular connections between departments and programs within the division and institution.  Each department developed key activities, goals and outcomes which are now utilized to guide assessment and budget planning. 

All annual reports and assessment plans reflect this new structure.  A map of these key activities and outcomes is in development and will be completed in 2016, to present a division-level view of priorities and strategies.
