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.
The annual plan progress report for 2012, the final year of the 2004-2012 University Plan, has been completed and is available for review. All colleges and divisions submitted individual progress reports that have been summarized and integrated into a collective report for the university. For additional information, contact Dr. Lisa Garza at 245-2780 or email@example.com.
2012-2013 Outcome Revisions
With the fall semester underway, it is time to begin reviewing and revising missions, outcomes, and methods/measures for 2012-2013 using the Texas State Outcomes System. Due dates are as follows: unit heads will approve outcomes reports for each of their departments by October 12, 2012. The office of University Planning and Assessment will then audit reports for compliance from October 15-19, 2012. 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, 2012.

This fall, we began a new 5-year planning cycle for 2012-2017. Over the past two years, we have been preparing a new university plan by reviewing potential environmental impacts, mission statement, goal statements, and desired future initiatives. All of these efforts have culminated into the Texas State University Plan for 2012-2017.
Introducing the 2012-2017 Strategic Planning Cycle
Beginning spring 2012, all academic departments/schools/colleges and administrative departments/units/divisions will begin developing strategic plans for 2012-2017 which will align with the recently approved University goals and initiatives. Detailed instructions, samples, and a formatted template are provided in the specific drop-down menus above. Additionally, a faculty development workshop will be presented on February 1st, as well as a professional development session on either February 13th or 14th, to guide in the development of these plans. The new planning cycle will be implemented in fall 2012.
