The Strategic Indicators series was a companion to Penn State’s earlier University-level strategic plans. To measure progress toward goals and to answer the question, “How well are we doing?” Penn State has since 1999 tracked and published strategic performance indicators.
Penn State has progressed through several strategic planning cycles since 1999 and the University has revised the set of strategic performance indicators to reflect the goals and strategies of each strategic plan. While some indicators remained consistent from cycle to cycle, some indicators were removed and other, new indicators were defined. Past editions of strategic indicators, produced by the Office of Planning and Institutional Assessment, are available below.
With the release of Priorities for Excellence: The Penn State Strategic Plan 2009-10 through 2013-14, Penn State has identified a set of strategic performance indicators to reflect the goals and strategies described in that plan. Those strategic performance indicators are listed in the “Strategy Implementation Matrix” and progress is highlighted at Progress and Performance.
