UT Dashboard – Driving Progress and Buy-In

UT System’s Strategic Plan dashboard was created to keep the Tennessee legislature informed about how the university is contributing to state goals for college graduation and student success. It’s become much more. President Joe DiPietro refers to it regularly in meetings with alumni, with faculty and staff in campus visits around the system, in trustee meetings and with national boards on which he serves. Updated twice annually, the dashboard enhances accountability, communications, advocacy and buy-in. Importantly, its metrics also help identify priorities for successive years in the plan’s 5-year implementation cycle.
