1 Paul McGhee Division Organizational Realignment

2 Review of Work October 2007-present
Need for Change Process & Strategy Progress Made

3 We Examined McGhee’s Strengths and Challenges
NYU brand NYC location Core fulltime faculty Diversity of students 9. Identity & Marketing Lack of visibility within SCPS & NYU Missing opportunity to be more external facing and engaged in wider community of partnerships & sponsors 2. Mission & Purpose Lack of focus and clarity Tension between being transformative and practical and between being a money-maker and providing a public service Vision & Strategy 3. Student Profiles Demographic and professional diversity of students is a strength and a challenge Students fall at two ends of the achievement spectrum 8. Services & Support Fragmented services don’t provide coherent and quality customer experience Services are not consistently convenient for adult students 4. Recruiting & Admissions Lowered standards have not attracted and screened for students who succeed Lack of partnerships and relationships with community colleges, business sponsors, and MA Programs 7. Faculty No clear profile for hiring Lack of process for ensuring consistent quality of teaching and classroom experience No forum for recognizing achievements 6. Program Structure Lacking focus, coherence, flexibility, and affordability Need more linkages to other BA and MA programs Need more opportunities to create global awareness 5. Core & General Curriculum Lack of agreement about relationship between liberal arts and professional studies Many want a more innovative and interdisciplinary core

4 We Questioned our Vision, Strategy, and Planning
Who do we want to be? Strategy How will we get there? Plan What will we do differently? What is our core mission and purpose? What are our fundamental values and beliefs? What do we offer that is most distinctive and valuable? What student profiles will we serve and not serve? What programs and services will we offer and not offer? What type of people will we hire? Which potential alliances and partnerships are most desirable? What is the content and feel of our marketing campaigns? What will we change about the recruiting and admissions process? What will we change about the program curriculum and structure? What will we change about the classroom experience? What will we change about our support services? What will we change about our marketing? 4

5 We Developed a New Mission Statement…
The Paul McGhee Division of NYU-SCPS offers unique undergraduate programs for degree-seeking adults, preparing motivated students for success in an increasingly connected and globally interdependent world. Using an interdisciplinary approach that combines liberal arts and professional curricula, our full- and part-time faculty members create a rich learning environment that engages the diverse talents and experience of all students. Within the NYU context of an internationally renowned large urban university, McGhee provides the dynamic student-centered focus of a small college committed to the academic, personal, and professional achievement of its students. 5

6 …and a New Vision Statement
We will embody the NYU brand while becoming internally and externally respected for our distinctive identity and the transformative educational experience we provide. We will attract a diverse, motivated, and talented student body through recruitment and admissions practices that take the whole person into account. We will have an innovative interdisciplinary core curriculum that establishes the foundation of a shared McGhee experience and identity. We will offer a coherent framework of majors and concentrations that consistently deliver high value to students, McGhee, NYU, and society as a whole by building academic and professional knowledge and skills of the highest standards. We will focus on accelerating degree completion for our students by providing a range of course delivery options and formats, and creating linkages to NYU graduate programs. Our faculty will be recognized internally and externally for their accomplishments and for delivering a consistently excellent learning experience based on measurable outcomes. We will establish a network of partnerships with institutions in the New York metropolitan area to enhance student and faculty recruitment, financial sponsorship of students, curriculum development, classroom experience, community events, and career advising and development. We will provide funding options for students who are self-directed, committed, and intellectually curious but lack the resources to attend the program. We will offer an integrated set of services that support retention and success from each student’s entry to the attainment of his or her goal. 6

7 First Steps Taken Six committees worked during spring 2008 on the strategies and implementation steps that came out of the planning process: Academic Affairs Curriculum Student Affairs Strategic Planning Leadership Admissions Admissions Criteria were strengthened. Placement testing was separated from admissions process. Litchfield Partners completed a market segmentation and tracking study for McGhee which provides important demographic and psychographic information on our students and potential students. A new marketing campaign was launched in January 2009 in response to the Litchfield data.

8 Strategies for Strengthening our Curriculum
Realign general curriculum to be clear, robust and non-duplicative. It should provide for better utilization of McGhee resources and increased clarity for students. Determine a coherent and attractive framework of majors and concentrations that will attract and retain students and can be offered at a high quality while being cost-effective. Match the internal logic of organization with the students’ perception. From the February 2008 McGhee Strategy 8

9 While Keeping in Mind… “We should be more interdisciplinary and innovative.” “Interdisciplinarity” should occur in course design and delivery.” “Specialization should remain at the faculty level.” “Don’t lose unique strengths and appeal of the liberal arts and professional studies focuses.” “There should be a stronger connection between the liberal arts and professional studies departments.” “The curriculum should be more modern and all-encompassing, especially in the eyes of our students.” “We should take advantage of our location.” From the Fall 2007 strategy assessment
