What We’re Looking For

We seek content that supports and showcases integrated planning practices within higher education. Our community finds value in actionable advice, how-to’s, tools, frameworks, and lessons learned.

Some hallmarks of integrated planning:

  • Cross-functional collaboration: Do people from different departments or functions discuss, decide, and act together?
  • Alignment up, down, and/or sideways: How do institutional priorities and day-to-day actions influence each other? How do decisions in one area of the college or university connect to decisions in another area?
  • Planning linked to resource allocation and assessment/metrics: Does the plan inform resource decisions? Do performance data inform plan decisions?
  • Collaborative governance: Do key stakeholders have a voice in decision making?
  • Future-focused, balancing aspiration with pragmatism: Do you work towards a vision? Are your decisions informed by the realities of the external environment?
