Annual Planning & Budget Working Group

Introduction to Institutional Planning

The planning process being undertaken at Dartmouth College is a 3-tiered process that starts with the President’s reaffirmation of Dartmouth’s mission, vision and core values. These are extremely stable over time. The Provost and faculty then articulate strategic plans. While not as consistent as the mission, vision and values, these are normally revised on a 5-8 year cycle. The final component, referred to as “annual planning” in this document, is a process by which divisional goals are defined and prioritized in alignment with the institution’s vision. Core to the annual planning process is the premise that budgetary resources will be reallocated and aligned with defined strategic goals. Following is a depiction of the 3-tiered planning process and a more detailed model of the annual planning process.
