The City University of New York follows a performance management process that links planning and goal setting by the University and its 22 colleges and graduate schools, measures annual progress towards key goals, and recognizes excellent performance.
Each spring, the Chancellor states the University’s performance targets for the upcoming academic year, guided by the University’s Master Plan. CUNY Presidents, working with their executive teams and college communities, then map out performance goals and targets for their institution for the coming year, in alignment with those of the University.
The college targets reflect differences in campus missions, resources and circumstances, and recognize that the colleges all start from different performance baselines.
At the end of each academic year, progress towards each college’s performance targets is assessed. High performance is recognized and, as resources are available, rewarded.
