Vision 2025 – Achieving Excellence

A Campus Focus on Student Success


PHASE 1 

Unit/College Level Discussions and Recommendations

The process at the college/unit level will be open and inclusive and run by a dean/director in coordination with the appropriate Vice Chancellor.  Each unit will have a budget reduction goal and develop proposals to meet the target amount.  Colleges and Units will consult, work with, and refer ideas to the Organizational Appraisal and Technology Committees as needed.  College/Unit recommendations will go to the appropriate VC and then to the UPRAC.  College/Unit recommendations do not need to be forwarded to either committee mentioned below.  

Organizational Appraisal Committee (campus-wide committee)

Co-chaired by Dean Robert Dooley and the Faculty Senate President Susan Davidson.  The committee is comprised of 16 members (including the chairs).  Recommendations can be forwarded to this committee by any campus member or through the College/Unit process described above.  Members of this committee can also recommend issues for discussion. This committee will provide campus level review of programs and areas that should be carefully examined.  This committee would allow examination of campus-wide impact of any proposed changes in academic or administrative structure.  The committee will consult, work with, and refer ideas to the Technology Committee and Colleges/Units as needed.  This committee is not tasked with making final decisions but will forward their recommendations to the UPRAC.

Technology Committee (campus-wide committee)

Co-chaired by Dean Theresa Liedtka and CIO Tom Hoover.  The committee is comprised of 16 members (including the chairs).  Recommendations can be forwarded to this committee by any campus member or through the College/Unit process described above.  Members of this committee can also recommend issues for discussion. It will examine technology in all aspects of campus operations and develop a draft plan for sustainability that includes a budget.  The committee will consult, work with, and refer ideas to the Organizational Appraisal Committee and Colleges/Units as needed.  This committee is not tasked with making final decisions but will forward their recommendations to the UPRAC.


PHASE 2

Campus Level Input and Review; University Planning and Resource Advisory Council. 

Core campus units make up the membership on UPRAC.  Drs. Ainsworth and Brown will co-chair the committee.  All budget reduction proposals and ideas for further study will come to UPRAC for discussion, prioritization, and generation of final recommendations.  Recommendations will be forwarded to the Chancellor. 


PHASE 3

Final Decision

The Chancellor will make final decisions and will consult with the Executive Team, Council of Deans, and others as needed. 

As the campus is engaged in discussions of programs and reorganizations, I encourage all participants to be respectful and sensitive.
