Student Support & Administrative Units

B. Improvement Project

At least every five years, departments/offices will identify and implement a substantial improvement project designed to improve student success, operational improvements or to support a strategic objective within SCSU’s Strategic Action Plan. Identification of an appropriate improvement project may come from a number of sources, including assessment findings, market research, program review or accreditation findings. Departments/offices should submit their improvement project to their Vice President for approval as part of the annual work plan discussion in the September immediately following their department review or accreditation. Progress should be reported during each annual planning report. A comprehensive report should be provided as part of the next scheduled Department Review or Accreditation self-study.
