The four Action Areas of the PCS are:
1. Administration and Finance
2. Education and Research
3. Operation and Innovation
Each Action Area has an evolving list of specific goals received from the President, Vice President, Provost, Executive Board, and PCS members. Each PCS member, or pair of members, will spearhead action on a specific short-term or long-term goal housed in one of the Action Areas. These members will lead an Action Group, made up of interested members of the PCS and UMW community, to achieve their goals. At the start of each semester, each PCS member will declare the Action Group he or she will lead, co-lead, or continue to lead.
At the end of each semester, the PCS co-chairs will collect, organize, and report the achievements and efforts accomplished under each Action Category. The report will be made public on the website and will be sent to the Vice President for Administration and Finance and the Provost for further action and consideration. The co-chairs will start and end each semester with a meeting with the Vice President for Administration and Finance and the Provost to define goals and the structure of the semester.
