ICC: Aggie Accountability Mechanism
Mitchell Taylor | ENDS 101 501
My concept is based on Goal 6, Strategy 6, Metrics of Action 2015.
"GOAL 6 Ensure public trust in Texas A&M University through open accountability mechanisms demonstrating efficient resource utilization and effective programmatic outcomes.
Strategy 6 Develop accountability and reporting systems that can be easily accessible to the Texas A&M community and our external constituents.
Metrics: Collect key data in a central web-accessible portal that can be accessed by both the internal and external stakeholders of Texas A&M University."
Textual Narrative Description
NeedsThis innovation was prompted by Action 2015, specifically goal 6, strategy 6, metrics. Students have a lot to benefit from an accountability system, as well as the University as a whole.
ResourcesThis would require a lot of resources to implement on the scale that would be necessary. Mostly, it would require computing resourches, such as servers, information systems, development time, etc. It would also require substantial administration time. It would require some advertisement to gain the necessary user base.
PrecedentsThere are already some accountability mechanisms Texas A&M employs. Several schools, such asThe University of Colorado, have similar information services. The problem with these services is they have little/no student interactivity. Students cannot request information, or easily communicate their concerns to the University.
