mission, vision and value statements and includes six key areas of focus: Inclusive
Student Success; Diversity & Inclusion; Teaching & Learning; Strategic Enrollment
Management; Financial Sustainability; and Campus Community, Communication & Shared

Functional Planning Efforts
- As part of the Division of Administration & Finance, the Office of Budget & Fiscal
Planning is responsible for preparing and managing the operating and capital budget
of the University and insuring that internal and external reporting requirements are
maintained. Budget & Fiscal Planning works with every department of the University
to insure that there are adequate funds for staffing, maintenance, and capital projects
within approved budget parameters.
- The PAR (Performance Assessment Review) is the performance review system used for
all classified employees. PAR provides an excellent opportunity for an employee and
their supervisor to communicate about job performance, job satisfaction, and plans
for the employee's future performance.

performance. This enables the University to achieve our institutional goals. Therefore,
it is the commitment of the University to train and develop our employees to improve
their skill and ability in both their current position and for future promotion.
