From staff reports
Members of the Ohio University community are encouraged to share viewpoints with their stakeholder groups in advance of the board of trustees' annual evaluation of President Roderick J. McDavis.
In an e-mail message being distributed today to faculty, staff and students, board Chair R. Gregory Browning says the board's executive committee will meet May 25 with leaders of the faculty, staff and student body to gather input. Groups meeting with board members are the executive committees of the faculty, administrative, classified, student and graduate student senates; the academic deans; the academic chairs and directors; the executive committee of The Ohio University Foundation board; and the president's executive staff.
"The president and the board want to know what your representatives think is going well for Ohio University and what can be improved," Browning says in the e-mail. "We would like to hear specific and constructive feedback relating to matters which are under the control of the president."
Browning says the board is especially interested in stakeholder groups' views of the progress McDavis has made on annual goals established at the start of this fiscal year:
- Improve communication and collaboration with faculty
- Implement the recovery process for information technology
- Implement the comprehensive strategy to reduce high-risk drinking among students
- Improve academic integrity
- Implement the top priorities of Vision OHIO
- Raise funds to support university strategic priorities
- Strengthen the financial control environment
Browning says the board will release a letter of evaluation following its June 29 board meeting.
"Providing the president with an evaluation is part of the work the board does to support him as he leads the institution," Browning states in the e-mail. "We look forward to working with your leaders to make the presidential evaluation a meaningful and helpful experience for President McDavis."
