Unit directors or designees complete an annual report highlighting their unit’s activities during the preceding year. Information gathered from the Annual Report is used to compile the Division’s annual Briefing Book.
Units within the Division of Student Success conduct a self-study designed to identify strengths and weaknesses in their unit. The outline used to perform the self-study is contained in the Book of Professional Standards 2006, published by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS). The CAS standards utilize 13 categories to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a particular program or service. Units are asked to complete a self study every five years, on a rotating basis.
Strategic Goal Review
As part of each unit’s annual report, unit heads are asked to identify “strategic goals” for the current academic year. As part of the Division’s on-going planning and assessment efforts, unit’s are asked to review their strategic goals and offer updates, as appropriate, to each goal mid-year. Updates should address what activities have taken place towards achieving the goal or what activities the unit plans to take to achieve the goal in the near future.
