At the central college level, $1,050,000 will be spent on new salaries in FY14.

UA Strategic Plan Beginning again now. We will need to adjust our plans in the detail (who is responsible and by when). Three committees: Academic, Budget, Physical Plant. RCM(2) =Responsibility (or Revenue) Centered Management Implementation ~2yrs from today (my guess) after extensive modeling process. To be implemented and maintained in a manner that incentivizes appropriate risk, either at the University or responsibility centered unit levels. Data driven. Colleges are the RC units. expectation on the college to balance budgets. On day 1 of implementation no-one to be harmed.

Executive Council Delegated authority, responsibility and accountability for 3 mission areas (TRE) Tripartite Governance Academic Unit Leaders Delegated authority, responsibility and accountability for academic delivery Faculty Voice Faculty Consultative Group, Research Advisory Committee, Cyberinfrastructure Advisory Group
Shared governance Major decisions about CALS and its future should be made under conditions of maximum practical inclusiveness and consultation. We must follow Arizona Law and UA policies. The faculty has the strongest single voice, but staff and students and all of our stakeholders must also be heard when their interests are at stake. All viewpoints must be fairly heard and considered.
Openness in, and diversity of, thought. University academic freedom is founded on a special mission of protecting free and open debate. None of us can expect our views to be free from vigorous challenge and we all must feel completely safe to voice our opinions. We must maintain courtesy and civility, and focus on the issues and not people, trusting that each of us wants the best overall outcome for the college.
