The CIP was constructed as a series of chapters overseen by a senior team at the university. The academic and research priorities outlined in the academic and research chapters serve as a foundation for planning in the capital, budget and resource allocation chapters.

The chapters that are the purview of the General Faculties Council (i.e., the Academic Plan and the Research Plan) were reviewed by the university’s academic community. The chapters that are the purview of the Board of Governors (i.e., the more business related chapters) were reviewed by various administrative committees.
