Questions 1. Questions of clarification about the Growth Plan document? 2. Big Picture - Is expansion the appropriate next step? Is 25 universities a reasonable number for the next step? What is a reasonable balance of expansion vs. further development of networking ideas? What kind of institutions? Selection Criteria?
Questions 3. If 25 universities, does the current Growth Plan makes sense for this size of network? The Affiliate Member is a major new idea to better involve non-R1institutions and individuals. Is it reasonable? Plausible? The Individual Member is a major new idea to provide access for individual future faculty not at the Core Member Institutions. Is it reasonable? Plausible? Feasible? Is it reasonable to expect NSF to fund the expansion? Is the revenue level from the institutions reasonable? Plausible?
Questions 4. If you are sitting at an R1 in a role of your choice, is this plan attractive to you? 5. Does this Growth Plan get us to a sustainable place in 5 years? What does this Network look like in 5 years? 6. Does this Growth Plan help us Increase Impact on National Policy and Culture? 7. Where does evaluation fit into a sustainable model, say 5 years from now?
Executive Session of the NAB and Report Out The CIRTL Network members and Susan Hixson will hang up from the teleconference bridge when the NAB moves to the Executive Session.
