Strategic Planning Task Force
President for the Las Cruces Campus/Chancellor for the NMSU System
The Strategic Planning Task Force is charged with keeping the strategic planning process widespread and evergreen through the ongoing process of identifying strategies to overcome challenges, capitalize on opportunities, and celebrate successes.
To execute its charge, the committee will:
* Implement strategic plan alignment in areas;
* Establish institutional priorities based on grassroots support through consultation with stakeholders; and,
* Represent the institution’s strategic planning efforts to the Regents.
The Chancellor appoints the Chair and/or Co-Chairs.
Representation by every college and major administrative unit is sought, and the committee make-up includes Community College representatives. Names are solicited by the Committee Co-Chairs and invitations are extended based upon suggestions from Deans, Vice-Presidents, and Department Heads.
Please note: The Members listed below are the Executive Committee and the Ex-officio/Non-Voting Members are members of the larger Strategic Planning Task Force Committee.
Please see above about the process for extending membership invitations.
The Chancellor's office approves recommendations for appointment through a solicitation process managed by the Committee Co-Chairs.
The committee operates on a one-year cycle and membership may be renewed without term limits.
The committee operates on an annual cycle that closely follows continuous improvement; performance on KPI measures is reviewed. This was the 2018 timeline:
October – Presentation to the Board of Regents with approval
March – Revisions recommended
April – Training on the use of the alignment tool
April – KPI suggestions submitted for presentation to new leadership
May – Alignment tools 95% for all units
There are no term limits.
The Committee Co-Chairs will fill vacant positions or resignations in the same manner as for the membership selection, i.e., requests for representative members will be made of department heads and deans.

The committee reworded Vision 2020 Goals to be inclusive of the NMSU System and will be recommended removal of the strategies so that departments and units could develop their own. Several KPIs were eliminated to make the process simpler and because these particular KPIs were not easily measured. The significant accomplishment was the Unit Alignment Tool that was completed by nearly every unit and college. The committee co-chairs will be available to make numerous recommendations for changes and updates at the Board of Regents 2018 Fall Retreat.
