Achieving our Vision of Excellence: campus assessment and planning

  • Chancellor Katehi with a student

As a public research university committed to serving both our students and the greater public good, UC Davis has undertaken a number of self-assessments and strategic planning exercises in recent years as a way to continue to improve our performance and the services provided by the university.

This website has been created as a convenient way for you to reacquaint yourself with those efforts and to track the progress that’s been made as we seek to live up to the goals and ideals expressed in the University’s 2010 Vision of Excellence. Likewise, to facilitate our efforts in this regard we initiated a comprehensive analysis of the entire list of documents, which was conducted by two leading organizational development consultants. 

We hope you will review the various reports our hard-working faculty and staff have produced, as well as the recently completed overview that serves as a synthesis and summary of the various efforts. For your convenience, the web site also includes a spreadsheet that shows the implementation status of each of the reports' most significant recommendations. We welcome your feedback and comments; please send them to
