The Strategic Plan Implementation Oversight Committee, which reports to the Executive Vice President and Provost, drives implementation of the planning framework throughout Penn State. It delivers regular progress reports to the President, Board of Trustees, and other University leaders, and integrates the Executive Committees’ work to provide a holistic view of our progress to the University community. The Oversight Committee also identifies and communicates points of alignment and potential collaboration between the plan’s thematic priorities and supporting elements, and assists the Executive Committees in making decisions about priorities and allocation of resources.
