The U. T. System Board of Regents unanimously adopted A Framework for Advancing Excellence throughout The University of Texas System (Framework) presented by Chancellor Francisco G. Cigarroa at the May 2011 meeting of the Board. This document translates the Framework initiatives into an action plan to assure the effective implementation and comprehensive measurement of the initiatives and related metrics.
Important work and progress have been made on many of the major issues. However, we must focus and redouble our efforts in the spirit of continuous improvement. The document also includes several new initiatives that continue to advance a culture of innovation, and positive change, focused on the advancement of The University of Texas System and its institutions. Recognition of the unique strengths and characteristics of the institutions is essential in their development.
