2010 - 2025 Strategic Business Goals

34 34 Appendix Endnotes 1 ICUF refers to the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida. SUS refers to the State University System. 2 This measure was added in the 2017 update. 3 Previous iterations of the Strategic Business Plan included the number of unduplicated undergraduate students who participate in registered community activities. Further scrutiny of this measure indicated that graduate students were likely included in some counts and tracking of student participation in voluntary activities may not be accurate. Therefore, it has been removed. 4 Measures were converted from raw numbers to percent of undergraduate enrollment to account for enrollment changes. The National Collegiate Honors Council has established a “best practice” that an honors community (program or college) should serve 10 percent of the undergraduate enrollment at that institution. This marker represents work with a student population that is clearly high performing within each institution, yet also assures a large enough community to reflect the breadth, diversity, and values of the entire institution. NSU has adopted this 10 percent benchmark for 2020. 5 Targets were increased, baseline was adjusted, and a new measure was added in the Addendum to the Strategic Plan approved by the Board of Trustees, November 17, 2014. 6 Funding levels are addressed under Strategic Priority 4: Increase Nontuition Funding. 7 Academic Program Review encompasses a set of systematic, integrated review and assessment processes for facilitating and ensuring academic program quality. These measures were revised to focus on program improvement in the 2017 update. 8 Carnegie Classifications are derived from institutional characteristics and activities from such sources as the National Center for Education Statistics, the National Science Foundation, and the College Board. The Community Engagement classification reflects an institution engaged in mutually beneficial and collaborative teaching/learning/scholarship activities addressing “community-identified needs, deepening students’ civic and academic learning, enhancing community well-being, and enriching the scholarship of the institution.” (Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching).
