to University Planning and Assessment at Texas State University. It is our philosophy that these two processes go hand in hand and are critical to the success of every endeavor we take as a university. We strive to establish and maintain a comprehensive and integrated planning, budgeting, and assessment process that will spur Texas State closer to becoming one of the premier universities in the state of Texas.
With the fall semester underway, it is time to begin reviewing and revising missions, outcomes, and methods/measures for 2016-2017 using the Texas State Outcomes System. Due dates are as follows: unit heads will approve outcomes reports for each of their departments by October 15, 2016. The office of University Planning and Assessment will then audit reports for compliance by October 20, 2016. When all corrections and final modifications are completed based on audit report findings, vice presidents will then review and approve reports for each department by October 31, 2016. For additional information, contact Dr. Lisa Garza at 512.245.2780 or at email@example.com.
Part of our planning culture at Texas State involves the continuous opportunity for feedback from our university community. We encourage all faculty and staff to be a part of this very important review.
