Search Document


The Institutional Planning (IP) at ADUC happens in a top-down approach. The Top Management formulates its Strategic Plan as per the Vision, Mission, and Strategic Goals and allocates resources to the respective units. Top Management ensures the alignment of Institutional Policies and procedures as per the Licensing and accrediting agencies.

The Strategic Planning is made for five years and is reviewed with the focus on growth and continuous improvement, aligned with ADUC mission, vision, and strategic plan, which the Board of Trustees approves. The strategic plan is conveyed to all the stakeholders in the form of action plans and KPIs. These are reviewed near mid-term in the context of continuous improvement based on regular assessment and evaluation.
