Annual Report

By September 1 of each year, vice provosts, and deans, will submit to the provost a succinct and focused annual report (four pages max) of significant achievements and changes in their units for the previous academic year. These reports will constitute a major source of information regarding institutional achievement and effectiveness throughout departments, offices and units, divisions, colleges, and schools.  The report must be submitted in both paper and electronic file formats.

As a basis for these reports, each unit represented on the organizational chart will submit a report to the dean, director, or vice provost who provides oversight to the unit. (Individual vice provosts, deans, and directors may ask additional units in their areas also to prepare reports.) From these reports, the vice provost, dean or director will prepare the annual report for the school, college, or division.

    1. Significant achievements and changes of college or school and programs/departments, including progress related to strategic plans and university priorities such as the initiatives to support teaching and research, and results of college or school assessment of student learning.
    2. Achievements in teaching, research, and public service, especially those of national, regional, or statewide significance.
