The mission of Snow College is governed by three core themes:
Snow College has identified objectives which “define” respective core themes. Each objective has one to four key performance indicators (KPIs) which “define” the objective. Snow College's strategic plan is represented by five main areas that help address budget and resource allocation
given the tactical direction of the College for the next five to ten years. These areas
identify with one or more core themes and provide additional measures of institutional
performance. In March 2015, the state of Utah determined that additional higher education
funding be appropriated to state institutions based on specific performance indicators.
Many of these indicators mirror those already established by the College. During the
2018-2019 academic year, the Utah System of Higher Education established an institutional
scorecard based on specific reporting metrics. These metrics were incorporated as
new or better defined measures supporting mission fulfillment.
As a result, Snow College has a total of 55 key performance indicators. The Mission Fulfillment Scorecard represents the College's core theme objectives and indicators as well as their relationship to mission, strategic plan, and state performance fulfillment. Clearly, objectives and indicators that inform all these areas are better measures of institutional improvement and/or success.
These indicators, along with results from distinct academic and non-academic review activities, serve as the environment and organizational structure by which Snow College assesses mission fulifllment and determined college performance.
Snow College also has specialized accreditation for the following programs:
