Abstract: At the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, a new Chancellor began a strategic planning process in fall 2016 with a focus on “big ideas” and “giant steps.” The planning framework emphasizes student, knowledge and regional transformation in three areas: Health and Wellness, Vibrant Communities and Global Connections. Each year, units are required to submit their strategic planning report to the Office of Accreditation and Assessment with objectives, measures and targets. At the end of the year units submit a report to show if these objectives were accomplished. The report includes findings to show if targets were met or not along with an action plan for improvement. For both the planning and annual reports units are asked to link their goals and accomplishments to the University’s strategic plan where appropriate.
