STRATEGIC PLAN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


2


FROM THE VICE PRESIDENT

The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services is on an exciting journey to continuously improve our programs, services, activities, and facilities to best support student success. To anchor our work with a clear vision and mission along with values to guide us, we created the first five-year strategic plan for the division. We were intentional to include all employees in the division in the spring of 2012 as we developed our six strategic initiatives and corresponding action steps that provided opportunities for each department to contribute in multiple ways. As the division grew from 15 departments to 29 departments and our staff from 225 to almost 450 with the addition of almost 1,200 student employees, the strategic plan continued to provide avenues for investment for each department. Our collective work over the last five years has been showcased annually with our Division Executive Summary Reports and are available on our website for review. I am proud to share the executive summary from the 2013-2017 strategic plan. We successfully achieved over 1,255 items across the six strategic initiatives in the areas of student success, student experience, global learning, innovation and accountability, collective identity, and strategic partnerships. We were able to advance our collective work through investing in our staff by fostering healthy work environments and professional development opportunities, evolving a culture of assessment, and supporting data-driven decision making. We were successful in strengthening our collaborative efforts and strategic partnerships both on and off campus, as we stayed focused on the ultimate goal of supporting student success. The executive summary provides a highlight of our achievements and I encourage you to review it as your time permits. We have spent the past academic year evaluating our progress and accomplishments in preparation for the planning phase of our next strategic plan. I am excited to share that we have engaged our staff from across the division in the first two phases of planning for the next strategic plan and will launch the new plan prior to kicking off the 2018-2019 academic year. Thank you for your continued support and for your partnership in improving the student experience at the University of Houston. Sincerely, Richard Walker, Ed.D. Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Enrollment Services, UH System Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Services, UH
