University Project Charters
Upon joining Idaho State University, President Kevin Satterlee began a listening tour with the campus community. He met with students, faculty, staff, alumni, community members, and donors. In addition, programs such as Coffee with Kevin and the One Thing campaign were launched to solicit feedback from campus.
This process illuminated many strengths, as well as opportunities for improvement at Idaho State University. In Fall 2018, President Satterlee began to assign various projects to divisions and departments to start leveraging ISU’s strengths and work on identified challenges.
These identified projects have become known as project charters. A project charter is defined as an assignment or task that a unit is charged to work on, with a statement of scope, responsibilities, and objectives. ISU’s project charters range in short-term measures to multi-year initiatives focused on enhancing the University. Each charter identifies the main stakeholder assigned to oversee completing the project and a brief description. The assigned unit is responsible to develop action items, determine budgetary needs, set deadlines, and if necessary, assemble task forces. However, it is the goal that, while a particular department might lead a project, all faculty and staff at Idaho State should collaboratively help to move these initiatives forward. Every project charter is aimed at improving the student experience and aiding in the educational mission.
If you have questions about the rationale behind the project charters, feel free to contact the President’s Office or attend a Coffee with Kevin session to discuss with President Satterlee.
Please keep in mind that not all project charters have been assigned to campus units. Additional unit assignments will be added to this website in the future. As projects advance toward completion, status updates will be provided.
