UB's president and provost are at the top of the institution's planning and implementation infrastructure. They will establish the vision, set planning principles, contextualize the need for change and make final decisions. Below the president and provost are the members of the Executive Committee; they will serve as advisors to the president and provost, consider alternatives, develop recommendations, and develop fiscal strategies to support planning and related initiatives.
The communication support person will work with the president, provost, and executive committee. A Student Advisory Group will provide advice to the Executive Committee, offer the student perspective on planning and implementation, consider planning assumptions and recommendations, and bring forward any student issues and concerns. Reporting to the Executive Committee are two committees: the Academic Planning Committee and the Academic Support Planning Committee. These committees will provide guidance to planning teams, remove barriers, and make recommendations to the Executive Committee.
