3 Mission statement: University Housing is committed to providing affordable, clean, well-maintained, comfortable living environments and enhancing the education of students through opportunities for personal growth, social development, and diversity awareness.

4 Location: 170 Price Commons Website: Residence Halls (N=20) Antrim, Froggatt, McCalmont, Curran, Kranzusch, Fleming, Hansen, Keith, Hovlid, Jeter, Tainter, Callahan, Milnes, Chinnock, North, Red Cedar, South, Tustison, Oetting and Wigen. Houses: 3,184 students in multiple living environments

5 Campus growth 1960’s -1,700 students to 5,000 students Adapting to growth Hall directors balance of facilities & student development Rules and regulations

6 University Housing Chart _chart.cfm _chart.cfm ASLS Chart

7 Interviewed Scott Griesbach, Director of Stout Housing Pre-Meeting Assessment Questionnaire Examples of questions: Give a brief overview of your organization (size, history, etc). Do you biggest challenges come from within your organization or outside of your organization?

8 Pre-interview: Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument Wanted to assess cultural dimensions Interview Style CasualSemi-structured Discussed strengths, weaknesses and challenges The “Master Plan”

9 Technology Too much technology 5 programs this year alone Training needs for new tech Increase in workload Utilizing assessment data Dissolve ineffective programs Keep effective programs Identify areas for improvement

10 Offers insight into organization Measures cultural dimensions Conducted independently

11 Internal Focus & Integration Cameron & Quinn’s Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument Housing Director Hall Director Now Future Stability & Control Hierarchy Market Adhocracy Clan Flexibility & Discretion External Focus & Differentiation

12 The process of: Defining strategy or “game plan” Making informed decisions Allocating resources efficiently Following a structured timeline “If you fail to plan then you plan to fail.” – Author unknown

13 Adapt Strategic Planning to Stout Housing Stout Housing is ready for change Plethora of information Lack time and resources: Unable to maximize utilization of assessment data Way of organizing the “game plan” for all members of the organization

14 Strategic Planning met with frequent success campus-wide Example: Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award

15 Challenge: Survey utilization Must cut low priority programs Org. has the tools Need utilization process in order to take action Need utilization process in order to take action Evidence based practice

16 Gather the data of the existing assessments Analyze the data Learn about the Organization: Understand the Organization Facilitate Strategic Planning Process Make recommendations based upon the strategic goals of the organization

17 Challenge: Multiple new technology systems to be implemented immediately which is greatly increasing the workload

18 Information systems theory How users come to accept and use technology Many things influence how & when technology is used Perceived usefulness (PU) Perceived ease of use (PEOU)

19 External Variables Perceive Usefulness Perceived Ease of Use Attitude Toward Using Behavioral Intervention Actual Use Based on Davis et al Technology Acceptance Model (TAM)

20 Change is processed at different levels Technology used to different extents Important factors to consider: Compatibility with the “game plan” Ease of use Chance to “reinvent” on the technologies employed

21

22 University of Wisconsin-Stout & Technology Learn at UW-Stout (D2L) Strategic Plan to integrate technology Plan is now a reality Fully functioning Successful Plenty of tools and resources right at your fingertips For all different stages of knowledge and diffusion

23 Understanding of the Technology Acceptance Model Create an organizational process for accepting, training, utilization and evaluation of technology use Write manuals specific to job level or classification – Deduction= from the BIG manual to easy to read specific level More effective training Practice before roll-out Evaluation of technology usage after 6 months Opportunity to “reinvent” the technology

24 How will we know if we are moving in the right direction? Survey employees for job satisfaction After a few months Yearly Implementation of a new technology system Evaluate the time Observe the difference
