The progress and impact of the System's strategic investments and initiatives are monitored through the annual report, in-depth reports on critical issues and strategic initiatives, and an annual summary for the Board on progress toward the strategic plan's overall goals.
The UT System Accountability Framework for 2008-09 lays out a series of specific indicators and measures of progress and impact that are aligned with the major themes and goals of the System's strategic plan. The Board of Regents receives the accountability report in May of each year.
