2011 Achievement RecordThree years ago we launched our first Achievement Record – a report on the progress of the university’s strategic directions, the foundational documents and the integrated plans. Today, we launch the third iteration exclusively through a revamped website: www.usask.ca/achievementrecord.
Institutions hold themselves accountable because they care about the quality and impact of what they do, and because they value their relationships with the public and with stakeholder groups. Accountability takes many forms, but all forms of accountability must be backed by information that is clear, transparent, accessible, and that is presented with a minimum of commentary. It is essential to convey institutional achievements widely, succinctly and based on evidence. The Achievement Record does this.
In the past, we promoted the Achievement Record with an accompanying printed brochure, but there is much more information available online, including expandable details at the college level. This year the Achievement Record will be available solely online, in its full-functional form.
Just as we strive to measure the things that are important to us and around which our plans are constructed, so, too, it is important to consider the implications of our performance in these areas for planning. I encourage our university community to take our Achievement Record into account as we formulate our plans for future initiatives.
