Strategic Directions for the University and Community College System of Nevada.
Nevada Univ. and Community Coll. System, Reno. Office of the Chancellor.
The Board of Regents of the University and Community College System of Nevada (UCCSN) meets annually with campus presidents, academic vice-presidents, faculty senate chairs, and the Chancellor and his staff to articulate a UCCSN vision and to provide a framework for common directions throughout the system. These strategic directions and objectives serve as a systemwide resource. The 10 strategic directions identified during the February 1993 meeting were as follows: (1) enhance academic planning and integrate planning and budgeting efforts systemwide; (2) emphasize undergraduate education and enhance the quality of undergraduate education; (3) selectively develop graduate education systemwide which serves the needs of Nevadans; (4) enhance access to and retention in public postsecondary education; (5) recognize and reflect the diversity of society within UCCSN institutions; (6) emphasize and enhance collaborative programs within the system and between the UCCSN and other institutions and agencies; (7) provide a leadership role to promote economic health and growth of the state through its educational, research, and service efforts; (8) continue UCCSN's commitment to evaluation and assessment to ensure accountability; (9) strive to obtain additional resources, allocate adequate resources to accomplish UCCSN plans, and ensure that the resources are utilized to provide a maximum return on investment; and (10) recognize the importance of higher education in building common societal values and ethics, and seek ways to promote and enhance this role. For each strategic direction, a series of specific objectives were also developed. (PAA)
