					GUIDE FOR SUBMITTING 2011 INSTITUTIONAL SIX-YEAR PLAN
Due Date: July 1, 2011

§ 23-38.87:17. Institutional six-year plans. (See below for complete code reference.)
A. The governing board of each public institution of higher education shall develop and adopt biennially and amend or affirm
annually a six-year plan for the institution and shall submit that plan to the Council, the Governor, and the Chairs of the House
Committee on Appropriations and the Senate Committee on Finance no later than July 1 of each odd-numbered year, and shall
submit amendments to or an affirmation of that plan no later than July 1 of each even-numbered year or at any other time
permitted by the Governor or General Assembly.

B. The Secretary of Finance, Secretary of Education, Director of the Department of Planning and Budget, Executive Director of
the Council, Staff Director of the House Committee on Appropriations, and Staff Director of the Senate Committee on Finance,
or their designees, shall review each institution’s plan or amendments and provide comments to the institution on that plan by
September 1 of the relevant year. Each institution shall respond to any such comments by October 1 of that year.

2011 Six-Year Plans

The 2011 Six-Year Plan consists of three components: Academic, Finance, and Enrollment/Degree Projections. The first two
components are included as worksheets in this document. The Enrollment/Degree Projections are being developed in a
separate process, but will be incorporated in the Six-Year Plan review.

The 2011 Six-Year Plans are due July 1, 2011. The group outlined in the Top Jobs 21 Act - see above section B - will meet with
each institution during the months of July and August to review the institution's plan. These meetings will be used to discuss
each institution's plan and provide comments. If changes to the plans are recommended or if additional items are identified by
the Higher Education Advisory Committee (HEAC) in the interim, revised institutional submissions would be due by October 1.




2011 Six-Year Plan - Instructions                             1 of 19                                              SCHEV - 5/3/2011
Academic Component

The academic component should address academic (including faculty) and support service strategies the institution intends to
employ in meeting the stated objective. It is expected that descriptions be brief with more detail for the 2012-14 biennium and
less detail for 2014-16 and 2016-18 biennia. The description should be at a macro-level with sufficient detail for the reader to
understand the general approach. In the column labeled "TJ21 Objectives," identify the TJ21 Objective(s) that apply to the
strategy using the letter codes listed below. An institution must submit strategies for each Objective A through D. An
institution is not required to submit strategies for every objective listed under E. Institutional mission, scope, and focus should
determine which objectives are addressed. If additional space is needed for a strategy, please expand by increasing the 'Row
Height.'
If a strategy has an impact on funding for the 2012-14 biennium, please identify the amount as either incremental, savings, or
reallocation - more than one category may be used. The worksheet includes totals for these values and the incremental funding -
cells D50 and E50 - values are automatically linked to the Finance-Operating worksheet - cells C17 and E17, respectively. If you
add rows for additional strategies, please update the total cost formulas (lines 50, 51, and 52 of the current Academic
Worksheet) and the incremental funding is correctly reflected in Line 17 of the Finance-Operating Worksheet.

TJ21 Objectives


      A. Plans for providing financial aid to help mitigate the impact of tuition and fee increases on low-income and middle-
      income students and their families, including the porjected mix of grants and loans.

      B. Plans for optimal year-round use of the institution's facilities and instructional resources to improve student completions
      and cost efficiencies.

      C. Plans for the development of an instructional resource sharing program with other institutions of higher education in the
      Commonwealth.


      D. New programs or initiatives including quality improvements.

             E6. Increased degree production in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and other high-
             need areas such as the health care-related professions. Enrollment/degree projections will identify the numeric
             results, list the strategies the institution will use to achieve the projection.

             E7. New programs the institution might consider to further the Commonwealth's objectives.


             E8. Increased research, including regional and public-private collaboration;

Finance Component

The Finance Component consists of three worksheets - Finance-Operating, Finance-T&F and Tuition Waivers. The Finance-
Operating applies to the 2012-14 biennium only. Please enter amounts in the cells following the footnotes instructions. Cells
C17 and E17 are linked to the Academic worksheet and represent the incremental funds requested to meet the strategies
outlined in the Academic component.
The Finance - T&F worksheet is used primarily for estimating non-general fund revenues by program from 2011-12 to 2017-18.
This template replaces the SCHEV NGF survey as well as the DPB's NGF survey. For E&G programs, continue the SCHEV
NGF survey practice of including annual revenue by student category for 2011-14 and only total annual revenue for 2014-18.
For other programs, continue the DPB NGF survey practice of providing only total annual revenue. All NGF revenue entered
here must be net of tuition waivers and uncollectible revenue. Student charges are for information only. Provide regular session
tuition and mandatory fees (E&G and non-E&G fees) for general students as listed.
The Tuition Waivers worksheet is a continuation of the SCHEV NGF survey. Add programs as appropriate.

Enrollment/Degree Projections Component
Detailed six-year enrollment/degree projections are being collected through a separate process. These projections will be
incorporated in the Six-Year Plan as part of the July and August review. This review will replace the enrollment projection
meetings that have been held in the past.
