Provost announces realignment of campuses

Jan 26, 2010
From staff reports

Executive Vice President and Provost Pam Benoit today announced in a staff memo, her decision on the proposed realignment of the five Regional Campuses, University College and University Outreach. 

Between  Executive Dean Dan Evans' recommendations and her own review, the plan calls for the creation of an administrative structure that unites the regional campuses and University Outreach under a single organizational unit, bolstering the philosophy of "one university."  University College will not join this administrative structure, but will continue collaborations with the regional campuses and University Outreach on critical matters such as educational access, student services, and student success will be expanded and enriched.

 Additionally, Benoit said the resulting work of the Task Force on the Future of Regional Campuses (2008) and the Undergraduate and Regional Education Study Team (2009) determined the best model for moving forward would be by means of a "continuous improvement team." 

 Such a team would have representation from across the university, and would be charged with prioritizing the recommendations of the aforementioned planning groups, setting goals, and ensuring they are met.  A timeline for the creation of the "continuous improvement team" will be developed after further consultation with the regional deans and their faculty and staff.

 The merger of the regional campuses and University Outreach into a single organizational unit will begin in mid-June when Charles Bird, the vice provost for University Outreach, begins his transition to retirement.
