Charger Scorecard

The University by the Numbers

The Charger Scorecard is the Strategic Plan Implementation heartbeat, where you will see the university’s progress toward the specific target areas that we have discussed during our meetings and emails of the past year. As it makes clear, we are making progress on key initiatives designed to grow enrollment, improve the preparation of our students for graduate programs, grow our new dual degree programs, increase the use of High Impact Practices in all our programs, and increase the visibility and size of our excellent graduate programs. The Charger Scorecard holds us accountable to our publicly expressed values and priorities.
