Institutional Planning and Assessment Committee (IPAC)

With the goals of institutional effectiveness, growth and transparency, the Institutional Planning and Assessment Committee (IPAC) is responsible for coordinating the work of institutional strategic planning and supporting planning and assessment throughout the campus. This includes recommending a meaningful and assessable college-wide plan to the President’s Cabinet, monitoring evidence indicators, assessing the plan, allocating strategic funds in alignment with the plan (as available), and updating the plan as need to align with the mission and needs of the students and the campus.

IPAC should engage with the campus and work with other effectiveness groups including the Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) the Student Learning Outcomes Committee, and other planning groups that oversee campus plans (e.g., Diversity Plan, Facilities Master Plan).

For 2021, IPAC will focus on:

  1. reviewing data indicators for all institutional objectives to determine progress and if other evidence would be useful
  2. support the Middle States Self-Evaluation by engaging the campus in discussions on the strategic plan and sharing updates on indicators
  3. work with the RAC to clarify the ways in which planning, resource allocation and assessment are connected in our decision-making for campus
  4. evaluate the strategic plan process and effectiveness of campus planning and assessment
  5. determine allocation of any available strategic plan funds by working with stakeholders related to institutional objectives

The membership will be appointed by the President and will include faculty from all three schools, the VP for Academic Affairs, VP for Student Affairs, MSCHE Institutional Accreditation Officer, professionals from all four divisions, at least one CSEA representative, a Student Government Representative, representative from the RAC, and representation from the following PCIE/GPIC/SOGIE/CGIS.
