Faculty and staff,
I sent an email to you last evening in which you will find several pieces of information regarding work around team restructuring. I shared with you Tuesday the brainstorming process we had undertaken to merge our Shared Governance Structure with our AQIP Structure, hopefully to be more effective and more efficient. As you review, remember these are larger oversight teams that will create working groups as needed to assist in identified needs.
As I mentioned, work on this project had representation from the Faculty Senate, Shared Governance Council and the AQIP Steering Team. Members included Jason Dockter, Colin Suchland, Karie Longhta, Leslie Ross, Tricia Kujawa, Chris McDonald, Lesley Frederick, Vern Lindquist and myself. We had three months of lively discussion in working through this process. Now, we need your input so that we can work towards having a redesigned structure in place by fall.
In the email attachment, I included:
1) a possible functional chart for our work,
2) team proposals,
3) a proposal for how deans/departments/ faculty might work together on development and maintenance of academic courses/programs (knowing that we need to address how curriculum/standards work fits into the process),
4) a document on the processes and questions for a quality institution that we should be able to address and answer on an ongoing basis.
We look forward to your feedback. You can do so with either a response to Bobbi Henry (she will pull together responses and the pass them on with anonymity) or by coming to the Stephens Room or Outreach Centers next week to study these more closely, have questions answered by someone from the brainstorming team and an opportunity to submit feedback.
