Academic Master Plan Committee
Charge: Provide leadership and guidance in developing an Academic Master Plan in three phases:
Phase 1: (Completed by May 30, 2014) Determine an Academic Vision/Mission and write an Academic Vision/Mission Statement that communicates how Texas A&M-Texarkana will become “distinguished” among higher education institutions in the Southwest. In this effort, we will not focus on a specific discipline or program, but determine an overarching approach to educating students at A&M-Texarkana. . . What kind of university do we want to be? What do we think we can be great at? What do we value as key to providing a “quality education”? What can be our “niche” in the competitive arena of higher education?
Phase 2: (Completed by December 31, 2014, in concert with development of the institution’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) as a component of the SACSCOC reaffirmation in 2016.)
Develop an overarching plan for how to make the Academic Vision/Mission a reality:
Phase 3: (Completed by March 1, 2015 in concert with FY16 budget planning) Develop a three-year Academic Master Plan aligned to the Academic and Student Affairs division plan that includes a single set of long range goals and annual objectives and departmental/college strategies to accomplish the objectives
