Operational StatementPHASE 1:
Please complete an initial draft of this form by late October 2021, with a final revision completed by the end of Fall 2021 semester.
This form assists the Academic Affairs Office in documenting operational structures and procedures for instructional and non-instructional units that report to the Provost’s office. It will also assist in annual reporting and HLC accreditation.
The Operation Statement takes 25 to 35 minutes to complete, depending on how many employees/members are part of your unit and how many cost centers belong to the unit. Printing and reviewing the questions prior to completing the online form will save time. A printable copy of the questions can be found in the sidebar.
This survey uses the word "Unit" to refer to the entity on which you are reporting. There are the different types of entities that may be considered a "Unit".
Here are some examples:
Academic Department (English, Business Administration, Psychology)
Academic Program (Honors, Leadership)
Office (Dean's, Records, Grad Studies)
Center (Extended Learning, Teaching & Learning, Professional Development)
Committee (Dept Chairs, Policy, PDP/PDR Review, Content Coordinators)
Council (Provost's, Dean's)
Once completed, a copy of the report will be emailed to the person that completes the form and the Unit Leader.
Units will be asked to document their unit-level goals on a submission form similar to this one by the end of Spring 2022 semester.
