In 2015 UNI began implementing an Annual and 7-Year review process for all UNI Centers and Institutes based on the recommendation of a 2014 committee that reviewed UNI’s compliance with the Iowa Board of Regents reporting and tracking requirements for centers and institutes (BOR Policy 3.7 Approval and Closing of New Centers & Institutes). The committee established an annual review process for all university centers and institutes and, per Iowa Board of Regents requirements, a more robust report for every center and institute that is completed once every 7-Years.
This process has evolved significantly over the last several years and while we understand that annual reporting is not an easy task to fit in to a center director’s busy schedule the review committee has taken steps to try and make it a worth-while process that helps center and institute directors and staff evaluate past successes and better plan and focus the activities of year to come.
Background Information: Below you can find a memo that was created and provided to the Office of the Provost in 2014 by a committee tasked with reviewing UNI’s center and institute reporting process. The memo provides some background to how the University approaches center and institute reporting as a reference for center and institute directors. This document contains outdated reporting forms; please use this document only as a background reference document.
