Don’t Speculate ñ Participate! : Academic Structure Committee

The Academic Structure Committee is one of the college’s three AQIP action projects for this year. The committee was formulated to examine five central questions:

1. How might we improve the organization of our academic schools so as to enhance collaboration between and among faculty, administration and departments?

2. How might we improve the organization of our academic schools so we might create efficiencies and avoid duplication?

3. How might we improve the organization of our academic schools so we might build capacity and create succession plans (business continuity planning)?

4. How might we improve the organization of our academic schools so we might clarify the administrative roles between and among our campuses and learning centers?

5. How might we improve the organization of our academic schools so we might eliminate competition between and among the schools and workforce and community services?

The committee is using the process management tools and the principles of ìThinking By Designî by Tim Brown to approach these questions. The committee meets every Monday from noon to 2:00 p.m. and their meetings are open to anyone who would like to sit in and listen to their important work. They will be formulating a series of recommendations which will be presented to Provost Council early this summer.

Speculation about the types of changes and results often begin whenever institutions, in higher education or business, engage in the examination of practices and structure. I want to encourage people who want to know more about the conversations of this committee to speak to members of the committee and perhaps attend one of their meetings. Don’t speculate ñ participate!
