Three-Year Strategic Plan for New Mexico State University-Alamogordo, 1993-1996.
Lillibridge, Fred, Ed.
This report, emanating from New Mexico State University-Alamogordo's (NMSU-A) Institutional Assessment and Strategic Planning (IASP) process, presents information pertinent to NMSU-A's planning process for 1993-1996. Following a brief introduction and the IASP Committee cover memo, the report highlights seven high-priority institutional issues: (1) inadequate state funding in certain categories, particularly instruction, academic support, and physical plant; (2) double-digit student enrollment growth and resulting stresses on human, fiscal, and physical resources; (3) the need for new and/or remodeled classroom and administrative space and an increased level of maintenance for the physical plant; (4) the continued allocation of human and fiscal resources to IASP; (5) the need to revise the IASP process to make it more effective and responsive to institutional needs; (6) the need to establish a set of administrative computing policies and procedures to guide planning, acquisition, technical support, and staff training; and (7) continuation of the emerging pattern of decentralization of the acquisition of audiovisual equipment and tape libraries. The final section presents a list of 18 vital campus issues identified during the IASP process, a list of 80 potential new and expanded campus programs and processes, charts showing 39 personnel requests and 43 equipment requests by unit, and outlines of campus space utilization and computing needs and projects.
