Appendix 2: SUNY Maritime College Performance Improvement Plan Metrics


In the fall of 2015, all SUNY campuses were required by statute in the 2015-2016 budget to submit to SUNY a Performance Improvement Plan in order to be eligible for additional funding from the Expanded Investment and Performance Fund. The SUNY Board of Trustees delegated approval of campus plans to the Chancellor. SUNY Maritime College’s Performance Improvement Plan was submitted in October 2016 and subsequently approved by the Chancellor.

As part of the Performance Improvement Plan, all campuses were required to demonstrate that their long-term goals and strategies were aligned with the six SUNY Excels priorities:

  1. Access: Enrollment; NY residents served; diversity; capacity

  2. Completion: Degrees and certificates awarded; retention; graduation rates; time to degree

  3. Success: Programs that support future student success

  4. Inquiry: Sponsored Activity; Student hands-on research; scholarship; discovery and innovation

  5. Engagement: StartUp NY; alumni philanthropic Support; civic engagement; economic impact

Campuses were requested to provide targets for each of the following metrics that supported the aforementioned priorities.
