College Wide Action Plans (CAPs)

The initiative sponsors will now form teams to “flesh out” the strategies and actions under each initiative, which establishes the College-wide Action Plan (CAP). The division deans and department managers will formulate their strategies and goals to support the accomplishment of the College-wide Action Plan.

College‐wide Action Plan Template Instructions (pdf)

A template to assist in documenting this process is provided above for download for completion of the division/department plans. Please contact the initiative sponsor (listed on the linked document) if you would like to participate in the team(s) to define the strategies and actions under the initiative(s).
