1 Enhancing and Sustaining Local and Global Communities, Environments, and Economies OSU 2007 Fostering Excellence in: Arts & Sciences Biosciences & Health Earth Systems Science Technology & Commerce Natural Resources

2 OSU 2007 Vision OSU will be a student-centered, research-intensive, and engaged learning community that enhances and sustains local and global communities, environments and economies.

3 OSU 2007 Goals Student Access and Success Programs of national prominence in: – Arts & Sciences – Biosciences & Health – Earth Systems Science – Natural Resources – Technology & Commerce Efficiency and Sustainability

4 Proposals VISION GOAL Proposals for Academic Programs Proposals for Administrative Programs Proposals for Student Services Proposal for a Capital Campaign Supported By

5 Goals for Design of Academic Programs Provide high quality degree programs in focus areas Enhance research in focus areas Engage in solving Oregons problems Enhance teaching and learning (86% retention) Increase interdisciplinary teaching and research Reduce administration and program duplication Provide consistent access to high quality services Increase fundraising effectiveness Increase faculty and GRA/GTA salaries to peer averages

6 Proposals for Academic Programs Initiatives within the five focus areas Organize programs for impact and efficiency – Align some college functions into larger unit – Merge programs/departments Competitive proposals for innovative curricula Ph.D. programs in College of Liberal Arts Center for Teaching and Learning Academic Success Center Task force on Indirect Cost Rate distribution Interdisciplinary Curriculum Council Framework for Centers, Institutes & Programs

7 Initiatives for Focus Areas Theme Teams in each area are developing 1- 3 initiatives that would advance our institution in the focus areas – Teams have representation from teaching, research, and extension – Initiatives are broad and encompass all aspects of our mission – Drafts by 2/28/03

8 Organize Some College Functions into Larger Units Arts & Sciences College of Liberal Arts, College of Science, Honors, School of Education, Center for Teaching and Learning, Academic Success Center, Centers Institutes & Programs, Extension Biosciences & Health College of Health & Human Sciences, College of Pharmacy, College of Vet. Med., Centers Institutes & Programs, Extension Natural Resources College of Forestry, College of Agricultural Sciences, Centers Institutes & Programs, Extension Technology & Commerce College of Engineering, College of Business, Centers Institutes & Programs, Extension Units led by Council of Deans, Leadership Team By 2005: - Develop/implement initiatives within themes - Reduce duplication and merge programs/departments - Reduce costs by sharing business and administrative functions - Consider College mergers and how to administer Extension within units By 2007, E&G and ICR will be allocated to larger unit Cost savings reallocated to focus area initiatives and increased salaries Earth Systems Science College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Science, Centers Institutes & Programs, Extension

9 Merge Programs/Departments Committee to establish criteria – Finish by 6/30/03 Committee to evaluate/make recommendations – Finish by 6/1/04 Invite suggestions from campus Engage external constituents

10 Competitive Proposals for Innovative Curricula Committee establishes criteria by 12/03 RFP by 1/04 with 7/04 deadline Decisions by 9/04; implement in 05-06 As Athletics debt is retired (per OUS plan), redirect $1 million in Budget Allocation Model from Athletics

11 Ph.D. Programs in CLA Focus on programs that make OSU competitive with our peers, and make faculty competitive for research funding Programs should align with the five focus areas of OSU 2007 CLA to conduct feasibility and financial analysis

12 Center for Teaching & Learning Faculty Senate task force plans center – Assistance in the following: Large classes Teaching Assistant training/mentoring Educational technology (including DE) Assessment, peer evaluation of teaching Diversity issues Teaching faculty orientation Interdisciplinary teaching 0.5 FTE plus one staff person – Coordinate with School of Education programs Redirect $1 million from Athletics

13 Academic Success Center One-stop for student assistance – Centralized information and referral – Testing – Tutoring – University Exploratory Studies Program advising – Academic success courses (Odyssey, plus others) – First-year experience – Establish advising standards – Advising training/mentoring Use current resources and realign

14 Task Force to Review Indirect Cost Rate Determine allocations that optimally support scholarship, research, and creativity with an emphasis on the five focus areas – Central Establish criteria for core research facilities/technicians to be centrally funded – Clusters – Centers, Institutes & Programs Representation from all groups affected by distribution of returned overhead

15 Encourage Interdisciplinary Programs Establish Interdisciplinary Council with Coordinator (no FTE; may be a standing Faculty Senate Committee) – Enhance communications – Coordinate efforts to establish programs/courses – Evaluate interdisciplinary programs Charge existing employee with oversight of interdisciplinary graduate programs Link with Centers, Institutes & Programs Revise Budget Allocation Model to account for ID teaching All new ID programs go through competitive proposal process

16 Consistent Framework for Centers, Institutes & Programs Task force to establish consistent definitions and criteria with level of support needed – Guidelines for central support: $, FTE, space, discretionary $ – Models for faculty, salaries, Indirect Cost Rate sharing with academic units Option for faculty to raise salary by 25% – Incentives to interact with start-up businesses – Criteria for initiation and termination Review every 2-4 years Coordinate with University Budget Committee

17 Goals for Design of Administrative Services Save resources that can be reallocated to the academic mission – 20% Provide consistent, high quality services across the institution

24 Facilities Space charge model – Facilities services owns space and allocates money to each cluster based on space standards. Clusters buy back space from Facilities Services. Flexibility in space standards for differences across units Centralize classroom scheduling – Task force to define classrooms All new buildings include 1-2 enhanced classrooms with capacity of 150+ Address space crisis for Services to Students with Disabilities

25 Faculty, Staff Development Institution-wide framework – Every employee has an individual development plan Career goal development within the mission of their unit Training Mentoring – Performance evaluations include assessment of plan Include leadership training at all levels, focusing on shared leadership skills 1-2 FTE from central Human Resources (no new FTE)

26 Information Systems Standard reliable bandwidths across campus Campus standard for e-mail and file storage – Everyone has e-mail account and access to e-mail – Everything beyond this funded by cluster Expand consulting desk Replace SSNs for IDs Task force to determine IT needs for implementation of OSU 2007

27 Goals for Design of Student Services Increase access to high quality programs Enhance livability of campus environments

33 Capital Campaign Prioritization of initiatives by a highly functioning University Development Council – Align fund raising with major OSU 2007 initiatives – Increase endowed chairs and scholarships – UDC to include one representative from each cluster – Faculty representation (past President of Fac.
