III. Board of Regents Policy
A. This section establishes the policy for a mechanism for translating the systemwide mission and strategic plan and the unit mission statements into specific programmatic plans guiding the development of each institution and campus. The board’s intent is to provide for detailed planning for each major unit that is consistent with the overall university mission and plan.
B. Unit academic plans shall be developed by the administration of each major unit with appropriate involvement of faculty, staff, students, and community members. A summary of comments received shall accompany the unit plan when submitted to the board for approval.
C. Upon recommendation of the president, the board approves in principle major unit academic plans for UH Mānoa, UH Hilo, UH West O‘ahu and the UH Community Colleges. The UH Mānoa academic plan shall contain brief planning statements for each major UHM college, school and institute. The UH Community College academic plan shall contain similar planning statements for each community college campus. Unit academic plans constitute a statement of general academic direction and priority for each of the four major organizational entities of the university.
D. Subunit academic plans for each community college and for schools, colleges, institutes, and other major components of the baccalaureate campuses are developed by campus administrators, with appropriate involvement of faculty, staff, students, and the community and approved in principle by the president or designee and made available to the board for information.
E. Together, the major unit academic plans and the subunit academic plans shall translate the broad directions contained in board-approved mission statements and the comprehensive system plan into long-term academic program development, physical facilities development, biennium budget priorities, and policies and procedures that guide the ongoing operation of the university.
F. The president is delegated the authority to promulgate new and/or revised executive policy that carries out the intent of this board policy and to periodically report to the board on the status of academic plans.
G. The Office of the President shall maintain an updated list of approved major unit academic plans and subunit academic plans.
