This fall, the UC Davis Strategic Plan entered its third year as a guiding document for planning, actions, and decisions throughout the campus. Assessing progress on a regular and ongoing basis continues to be a critically important part of the strategic plan. To meet this goal, the campus issued its "Year Two" Progress Report in November. This report captures major advances and outlines ongoing programs in support of campus strategies and priorities, and in some cases features a discussion of the metrics that are being used to measure progress in advancing the strategies. This year again, IET contributed a rich narrative summary of implementation efforts in support of "providing the physical facilities, information resources and technology infrastructure necessary to achieve national and international distinction and leadership in learning, discovery, and engagement" (strategicplan.ucdavis.edu/2005_framework_4.html).
