Academic Planning Group

The Academic Planning Group (APG) is a high-level joint Senate-Administrative body advising the Provost on academic resource allocation and strategic emphases. The collaboration between the Senate, Administration, and Faculty that occurs in this group is an effective way of making informed decisions about priorities for funding, positions, and structural changes. The APG is co-chaired by the Vice Provost of Academic Planning and Institutional Research and the chair elect of the Academic Senate. Each year the co-chairs meet with the Provost to discuss campus priorities, identify topics for workgroups, develop a written charge for the workgroups and identify faculty and staff with expertise and experience in the areas of interest to invite to serve as workgroup members. Each workgroup is expected to submit a final report to the Provost before the end of the academic year that summarizes the groups activities/research and provides recommendations for action. The efforts of the workgroup are valued because they not only consider potential areas of growth for the campus but also address areas of concern and opportunities for improvement that affect students, staff, faculty, and research.”
