The charge of the CPC is to monitor and assess the progress and completion of all goals associated with the Buffalo State urban-engaged campus strategic plan (2016–2021).

  1. The CPC will review progress on all elements of the goals assigned to members of the cabinet.
  2. The CPC will set up a timeline for all cabinet members to report the status of goals under their direction.
  3. The details of the report that will be submitted to the CPC will be defined by the CPC but will include a written report; documentation of progress toward completion of goals; when appropriate, efficacy of the project being described; how the goal is meeting the specific goal or element within the strategic plan; and any budgetary issues related to the goals.
  4. The CPC will provide a written summary report on or before June 15 of each year to the president indicating the progress toward goals; any recommendations related to specific goals; and any changes related to the goals based on the CPC's review of information provided by the supervising unit. The president will meet with the chair and/or members of the CPC to receive and discuss this summary report.
