In September 2019, the Board of Trustees approved targets for 13 of the “Top Flight” metrics. The Associate Vice President for Institutional Research and Decision Support identified and worked closely with data owners and stakeholders to analyze historical data and develop longitudinal projections for these approved metrics. Targets for the remaining 16 metrics are currently under development and will be recommended to the Board of Trustees in the future. These targets were collaboratively developed with the President, Provost, and the Chief Strategy Officer.

In May 2019, the Board of Trustees approved the 29 “Top Flight” metrics, which were developed with the theme of One Mission, Five Goals, 10 Questions We All Must Answer. These “Top Flight” metrics will be our high-level metrics that each college, division, and department should be working towards when implementing their plan and will be key performance indicators that will inform annual reports on the progression of Destination 2040: Our Flight Path.
