19 Budget vs. Revenue “Perm vs. Temp” “The College budget” vs. College Budgets 19

20 College-level permanent salary dollars projections 20

21 Today we can afford now a maximum of 82% of the T/C track faculty that we had in FY08. 21

22 College-level temporary commitments Temporary commitments are temporary. Temporary funds are temporary. We can’t expect to solve permanent issues with temporary funds—we need to find permanent funds to do so or solve the problem another way. 22

23 23

24 1. The majority of temporary commitments are now in faculty start-up costs. 2. We cannot go negative; the money has to come from somewhere within the greater college. 24

27 Strategic plans: local and fitting in with the UA’s. Why? Best deliver on our mission areas. Work most efficiently within our budget--there is no upcoming budget cut as of today. Focus on ways to derive the revenue we need. Be an asset to the University and the State. Identify the best organizational structure for the college to do all of the above. Phase I, II and III. DRAC FCG 27

28 This semester: UA central administration will ask all colleges to do what we have already done. We may be required to make some changes but I expect that they will be minimal. Internally we have living documents. 28

29 “The UA will emphasize research in the areas of biomedical science and biotechnology; environmental science, technology and policy; optical and information science and technology; and space sciences.” President Ann Weaver-Hart, Letter to Faculty, Fall 2012 29

41 I find no utility in reminding ourselves and others that our state funding has been dramatically reduced and by how much, hoping that by mourning the past, we will resurrect it. We will never return to the funding models of the 20th century. The revenue sources for great universities will be different. I will ask you to explore, develop and expand these opportunities. While the budgetary events beginning in 2007-08 were catastrophic, they are now a part of history......part of this success will be modeling change by disrupting the past, as an ongoing process to create the 22nd century university. I also find no utility in adherence to rules and regulations that have persisted long past their useful lives. UA President Hart "The Risk to Blossom," November 30, 2012 41

43 Positives: Clear responsibility and accountability for mission and deliverable areas. Information sharing more readily across boundaries. Allows for specialization that can increase depth of knowledge and professional development and career progression. Promotes mixing and matching based on current needs. Ideal environment for innovation. Should promote inter-dependence. Negatives: People can become confused by seemingly conflicting review structure. Conflicts over resource allocation. Difficulty in monitoring if teams have a lot of independence. Increases the number of managers, the time to reach decisions increases and increases management-related overhead costs. 43

47 Every unit has a different story and cultures and will need to chart it’s own path forward. The one commonality is the need to have a compelling purpose statements, visions and plans to realize the these visions. Build on strengths in the context of what will be important for tomorrow—we are, after all, a forward thinking organization. Keep our financial realities in mind. Be opportunistic and expect things to interrupt our plans. 47

48 Embrace our heritages and our traditions, and at the same time the change that we are seeing in the world today, and ……remember that if change is radical it must also be pragmatic. 48

49 1992 Arizona Revised Statute 15-1601. State universities; location; faculty powers: The faculty members of each university, through their elected faculty representatives, shall participate in the governance of their respective universities and shall actively participate in the development of university policy. 49 Must follow UA policies and processes, including any changes in our unit structures:

50 The uncertainty of our future usually increases with the distance from the present. The future is still bounded. There is not only one plausible future state of the system but several. ‘Disruptive’ or ‘black swan’ events happen, where a choice is emphasized, or choice is removed, between several future paths.
