This week’s assignment is the second part of a three-part Course Project which requires you to develop a financial plan for a department within an institution of higher education. Continue using the “Develop a Financial Plan” Word template which you downloaded and saved in Week 4 to complete the Course Project. The Course Project is based on the following scenario:
A new president has been selected to run your university. His first initiative is to impose a new strategic direction that focuses on three key priorities:
· Increasing student engagement
· Integrating information technology into programs and services
· Developing measurable learning outcomes
This has the potential to change a number of operations, priorities, and the allocation of resources in your department.
For Part 2 you will consider how your department should reallocate resources to meet the new initiatives you have identified, how these initiatives should be funded, and how a change in operations should be assessed given the new priorities.
