Strategic Plan Overview
The NDSCS AQIP Strategy Team is tasked with leading the development and monitoring of NDSCS’s strategic plan. 2017-2020 NDSCS Strategic Plan.
Alignment: The 2017-2020 NDSCS Strategic Plan aligns with the North Dakota University System’s ‘The NDUS Edge: 2015-2020 Strategic Plan’. Each goal is mapped back to the NDUS Edge and is noted in blue text following each goal.
Assessment: The strategic goals will be measured according to the corresponding KPIs. Indicators will be reviewed annually for progress [FY18; FY19; FY20] by the AQIP Strategy Team and will be written to by each area and department. Final measurement will occur in June 2020 (unless otherwise noted). Identified strategies are steps or processes required/needed to achieve the goal(s).
Structure: Following each goal, related KPIs and Strategies are identified. Identified strategies indicate timeline and those responsible for accomplishing and/or monitoring that strategy. ‘Academic Leadership’ for this plan is defined as the Dean of the Arts, Science and Business Division, Transportation Department Chair, Construction & Design Department Chair, Building Systems Department Chair, and Manufacturing Department Chair.
Strategic Plan Development
The development of the 2017-2020 NDSCS Strategic Plan was done in four phases September 2016 through May 2017. This developmental process allowed for data to be collected from students, employees, and other stakeholders through various channels; including: Department, Committee, and Senate feedback (Fall 2016), College Employee Satisfaction Survey (Fall 2016), the Student Satisfaction Inventory (Fall 2016), and CQR/Federal Compliance feedback (August 2016). The team then reviewed the data, identified key themes, and developed draft goals and key performance indicators (KPIs) based on those themes; the draft goals and KPIs were then shared back with various groups for their review, edits were made based on the feedback, and the NDSCS Strategic Plan was adopted in May 2017 for implementation starting July 1, 2017.
