Performance Improvement Plans

SUNY Excels Performance Improvement Plans

In Fall 2014, SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher announced that we had collaboratively agreed upon the key measures of a system-wide performance system called SUNY Excels. SUNY Excels represents the University’s commitment to continuous improvement, to excellence, in five key areas: access, completion, success, inquiry and engagement.  To ensure accountability, for ourselves and the public, each campus worked through 2015 to develop comprehensive Performance Improvement Plans that include a narrative about their strategic priorities as well as data commitments through 2020-21 on a standard series of metrics. These plans are working documents that will be updated annually to reflect new developments and to report on progress. The commitments in the plans represent a true elevation of the SUNY System and our commitment to New York State. We have matured as a system. We are moving away from competing with one another to now working together to compete at or above the level of our aspirational peers and in so doing, we are taking to the next level our service to and support of New York State.

Approved Performance Improvement Plans for all SUNY campuses were required for receipt of Investment and Performance Fund funding for state-operated campuses and for receipt of Jobs Linkage funding for community colleges. These plans were approved by Chancellor Zimpher on behalf of the SUNY Board of Trustees on December 22, 2015.
