Strategic Planning, 2000-2005.
Tennessee State Board of Regents, Nashville.
This report presents cycle four of the strategic planning process at the State University and Community College System of Tennessee. The cycle extends for five fiscal years from 2000 to 2005, and is meant to: (1) provide a blueprint of the systems vision; (2) provide guidelines to facilitate setting system policy and priorities; (3) provide benchmarks against which strategic goals can be monitored; and (4) increase public awareness of the system's mission. The proposed strategic planning process includes eight steps: (1) defining the system's mission; (2) assessing the internal and external environments, which includes systemwide assessments as well as institutional assessments; (3) developing strategies that will ensure the implementation of the system's mission; (4) setting strategic goals and action plan objectives; (5) integrating the strategic plan; (6) obtaining Board acceptance and fully implementing the plan; (7) periodically assessing system performance and internal and external environments; and (8) submitting an annual report to the Board. Attachment 1 contains reference and resource materials that include instructions on writing the institutional mission statement; defining and establishing strategic goals; developing annual action plans, which are the institution's vehicles for achieving its strategic goals; and evaluating performance. Examples of complete and incomplete mission statements are appended. (EMH)
