Process Improvement Committee

Process Improvement Committee

The Process Improvement Committee provides a forum for faculty and staff to identify administrative process concerns and to suggest opportunities for enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of these processes campus-wide.

Administrative Processes are business or operational processes, housed in an academic or non-academic unit, that govern how faculty and staff accomplish their work. When considering administrative process improvements, questions for consideration may include:

  • Is the process too cumbersome?
  • Are there opportunities for streamlining?
  • Is communication clear of what is expected?
  • Is training provided?
  • Does the current process meet our needs?

Areas of exploration may include, but are not limited to:

  • Policies, procedures, and processes
  • Logistics
  • Facilities / Infrastructure
  • Safety
  • Communications
  • Training Needs
