When WKU officials say the University is climbing to greater heights, they now have numbers to support that.
Metrics for WKU’s 2018-28 strategic plan, Climbing to Greater Heights, were presented to the school’s Board of Regents on Friday morning (Oct. 25). The 15 major metrics, available on the strategic plan website, are part of a set of more than 80 that will be used to evaluate the strategies developed to meet the goals of the plan.
“The Strategic Plan Implementation Committee was formed this spring to develop the goals, strategies and metrics to assure we the follow the roadmap our plan provides,” said Bruce Schulte, Associate Vice President for Strategy, Performance and Accountability and committee chair. “We have taken input provided from across our campus community to develop this implementation plan and related metrics. Now we are sharing this work with our various governance groups for additional feedback.”
The Strategic Plan was approved in the summer of 2018 and is divided into three major areas: Our Students, Our Hill and Our Community. Schulte said working groups developed the goals and metrics for each of the sections.
“This will continue to be a working document as we assess our progress, receive feedback and develop additional strategies and metrics,” he said.
WKU President Timothy C. Caboni said Dr. Schulte has met with the leadership of our governance groups across campus to discuss these metrics and will continue talking more in depth with these groups throughout the fall semester.
“As a community we have achieved remarkable progress,” President Caboni said. “Thank you to the implementation, executive and working committees for your efforts to move quickly on executing our strategic plan. Thank you, faculty and staff, for creating and implementing the tactics that align with our overarching goals and strategies. Most importantly, thank you for remaining true to our mission of supporting every WKU student through to graduation.”
