Item 4 2011-2012 Accountability Report 

The Accountability Report is the Board of Governors’ (BOG) approach to system-wide performance tracking for each university’s commitment to greater accountability and measuring outcomes. The BOG has implemented a comprehensive planning and accountability framework designed to maximize system capacity, and to meet state economic development needs through education as well as research and development. With initial steps achieved in 2009, multi-year university work plans and the BOG’s Annual Accountability Reports now reflect each institution’s unique mission and core strengths. These work plans were presented for the first time at the BOG’s planning session in June 2010. In 2011, the work plans were used to help the BOG make decisions regarding proposals for new degree programs and differential tuition requests. Also that year, the work plans were reviewed on a new timetable that ran concurrently with Legislative Budget Request reviews. This year (2012), the Annual Accountability Report will incorporate the additional metrics that were approved as part of the new Strategic Plan, furthering the framework for complete accountability.


Provost Workman will address the committee and present the University of North Florida’s  2011-2012 Accountability Report.
