Planning Advisory Committee- Pali Sen
The committee met on last Tuesday, February 3rd
at 12:15. We met with our guest Provost Traynham. Our discussion covered issues related to the
future strategic planning at UNF. The
provost reported that UNF had a good year this year as far as meeting the
requirements in the matrix for the Board of Governors. President Delaney will speak more on
that. One of the biggest focuses at the
Academic Affairs for this year will be to retain more students at UNF while
keeping the quality high. The provost
request more faculty involvement in nurturing students to stay. This may be a challenge with increased focus
on Distant Learning courses. The provost reported that the strategic plans from
each college were coming in and each college had prioritized their
programs. He will review them in the
coming months. He has also mentioned
about his recommendation for next year for two new faculty positions in the
College of Health to keep the faculty adjunct ration at about 75% to 25%, which
is UNF’s goal. The provost also
mentioned that since associate deans and chairs were not in unit faculty, they
did not receive a raise this year. He expects new recurring money for the next
year and will recommend a salary increase and adjustment of stipends for
associate deans and chairs, which is good news for them. Members of the SPA committee requested a
presence in the upcoming strategic planning meetings beginning next Monday. The
provost will recommend it to President Delaney. Our next meeting is scheduled
for Tuesday, March 3rd at 12:15pm in the OFE/FA Conference Room.
