STI's Futures Team helps the institute plan for continuous improvement (AQIP Category 8 - Plannning Continuous Improvement) and oversees the other AQIP Teams. The team examines the institution's planning processes and how the strategies and action plans are helping achieve the mission and vision. This includes vision, planning, strategies, action plans, measures and performance projections, alignment of strategies and action plans, and resource needs.
The Futures Team analyzes key data, distributes data to the appropriate team/committee/department/program for further analysis and actions, and receives feedback from the other AQIP teams on what actions they are taking. The Futures Team also makes recommendations to the STI Administrative Team for action projects based on the analysis of the data.
