has entered the implementation stage of this strategic plan
as a result of the plan's approval by the Board of Trustees
on November 2, 2001. Each school, department, and other academic
as well as nonacademic unit will develop respective strategic
plans during the 2001-02 academic year. These plans will require
the approval of the President prior to implementation.
As it implements this strategic plan, Purdue will demonstrate
a culture of resource development, planning, and allocation
that is driven by strategic plan priorities. Simultaneously,
a culture of data-driven decision making will be pervasive
across the campus while a sustainable, well-crafted system
to assess Purdue's progress on the strategic plan goals also
will be implemented. Purdue will assess and report its progress
to the Board of Trustees annually based on the strategic plan
goals and metrics as well as on the benchmark measures for
comparison with Purdue's peer institutions.
Together with the Board of Trustees, and the constituents
it serves, Purdue looks forward to building critical resources
and implementing this strategic plan to achieve its vision
for The Next Level: Preeminence.
