He is pictured here with billionaire, H. Wayne Huizenga. Edinboro University’s Guiding Principles: Edinboro University’s Guiding Principles In service to our mission, as a community we recognize the uniqueness of each individual and embrace the opportunity and responsibility to: Pursue excellence in lifelong learning and scholarship. Promote collaboration, openness, honesty, and respect. Foster integrity. Champion fairness, social justice, diversity and civility. Encourage creativity and innovation. Serve others within and outside the Edinboro Family. UCO’s Beliefs & Values: UCO’s Beliefs & Values UCO’s fundamental responsibility is excellent teaching, which involves instilling and fostering in students the joy of learning, the ability to think critically and a desire to achieve their creative potential. Our other major responsibilities include scholarly activities, research and service to students, to other individuals and to the larger community. A college degree should represent an education which enables its recipients to become good citizens and responsible, independent adults who embrace learning as a lifelong endeavor. Great universities must require and encourage a free flow of information, ideas and opinions in a community which fosters social justice, values diversity and demands the highest standards of ethical conduct, mutual respect and civility. UCO as an institution, and all its constituents, must be committed to continuous processes of self-examination and self-improvement which encourage innovation, receptiveness and adaptation to change. UCO must seek and maintain open and mutually beneficial relationships with its surrounding communities, and must also view itself and its graduates as part of an increasingly interdependent global society. Edinboro’s 9 Priorities: Edinboro’s 9 Priorities Enhance academic excellence. Increase enrollment to 8,000 students in the next several years through enhanced enrollment and retention strategies.

Creating Community: Creating Community In 1996, Edinboro University sponsored virtually no activities or events that were designed to bring all community constituents together. Creating Community: Creating Community “I needed to get this community talking, interacting, and creating a vested interest in one another.” “I chose to do this, in part, through a series of University-wide events – many of which have a direct relationship to our budget and planning process. University-wide events are not add-ons—they are integral to the planning and continuous improvement process.” …..Dr. Frank G. Pogue, President, Edinboro University of PA Community-Building: Community-Building Summary of Outreach Efforts Since July 1996 Personal visits with leaders and members of internal and external constituent groups: Internal: Council of Trustees Student Government Association Academic Department Chairs/Departments Clerical Workers Housekeeping Workers Maintenance Workers University Senate Union Leaders Alumni Retired Faculty External: Area Mayors Elected Officials Superintendents Business Leaders Agency Leaders Community Center Leaders Colleague Higher Education Presidents Prisons Community-Building (Cont.): Community-Building (Cont.) Creation of University As a Neighbor Advisory Group -Have hosted community dialogue forums Service on more than ten regional boards Leadership of fund-raising initiatives for organizations such as United Way, MECA/UCP, American Red Cross, Erie Day School Regular attendance/representation at area annual functions/dinners University representation on Edinboro Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater Edinboro Area Roundtable, Civic Coordinating Committee, Erie Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Northwest Pennsylvania Workforce Investment Board Creating Community: Creating Community We incorporate the theme of civility into all of our campus activities. We identified “The Century of Civility” as our theme for the 1999-2000 academic year and beyond. We ask all of our campus citizens to consider their role in advancing the ideals of civility – fairness, tolerance, collegiality and civic responsibility – through their classroom and extracurricular activities. Creating Community: Creating Community It was during the first Fall Convocation in 1996 that we announced the creation of the symbolic “Edinboro Family” and invited the nearly 2,000 people in attendance to turn to each other to pin each other with the Edinboro Family Pin. The Family concept denotes respect, caring, collegiality, and civility. It also denotes our resolve to create a “student-centered” community in which students are our first priority. Definition of Strategic Management: Definition of Strategic Management Strategic management “is a continuous, iterative process aimed at keeping an organization as a whole appropriately matched to its environment.” Iterative means that “the process of strategic management starts with the first steps, ends with the last step and then begins again with the first step.” (i.e. cyclical). Certo & Peter (1991). Strategic Management – Concepts and Applications. 2nd edition. What’s the difference?: What’s the difference? Strategic planning can be used to determine mission, vision, values, goals, objectives, roles and responsibilities, timelines, etc. Strategic planning is only useful if it supports strategic thinking and leads to strategic management - the basis for an effective organization. Strategic management applies strategic thinking to the job of leading an organization. http://www.nonprofits.org/npofaq/03/22.html Linking Planning and Budgeting: Linking Planning and Budgeting Building an Inclusive Planning Process: Building an Inclusive Planning Process Consequently, on March 7, 1997, we closed the University completely for 1½ days to observe what we called “University Mission Day.” We created nearly 30 workshops that involved the entire campus, including our seven unions, faculty, students, Trustees, alumni, and representatives of our host communities, in a discussion of the University’s mission and their roles in addressing that charge. As a result, the mission was modified and updated to include the importance of community-civility. Building an Inclusive Planning Process: Building an Inclusive Planning Process Following “Mission Day,” and in an effort to benefit from the numerous recommendations made by the break-out groups, a permanent, thoroughly represented 21st Century Planning Group was created. This group assists in monitoring our inclusive planning, budgeting and continuous improvement process, as well as serves as the steering committee for the University’s Middle States ongoing accreditation efforts. 21st Century Planning Group: 21st Century Planning Group The President has placed a priority on strategic planning as a means by which the University may excel in academics and service. One of the hallmarks of an effective strategic planning process is the inclusion of the entire University community in planning endeavors. We are achieving this by traditional methods of communication in addition to special efforts and events designed to bring the community together to discuss the Mission, priorities, goals and objectives of the University. These efforts are being coordinated by the University Planning, Institutional Research and Continuous Improvement function, in consultation with the Provost and President. The strategic planning process has been greatly assisted by a special advisory body called the Twenty-First Century Planning Group. The Group serves as a recommending body for the establishment and maintenance of priorities for Edinboro University of Pennsylvania as we enter the twenty-first century. The Group has been charged with the responsibility of ensuring that all University programs and services remain consistent with the University Mission, goals and objectives and strategic plan. 21st Century Planning Group: 21st Century Planning Group One-Year Term Ms. Linda Askins Ms. Jennifer Butler (Student Representative) Mr. William P.

The criteria included a calculation of revenue using the credit hour production by school for one fiscal year as a product of PA resident tuition rates and a comparison of the related expenses for two previous fiscal years. It included a distribution of Instructional Service fees since revenue is accrued by course enrollment. It did not include a pro-ration of overhead expenses relating to plant, utilities, and other indirect costs; nor is there an allocation of state appropriation revenue.

What is Middle States Accreditation?: What is Middle States Accreditation? "The Commission on Higher Education is the unit of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools that accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region. It examines the institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within the institution." Middle States Accreditation: Middle States Accreditation We participated in a highly-collaborative MSA self-study. We will share how our University incorporated the self-study recommendations, and those of the visiting team, into the university’s planning and budgeting process and the next iteration of a strategic plan.
