Road Map budget process for 2015-16 announcedTweet
Provost Donald Nieman has announced a call for proposals for funding to support projects to begin in the 2015-16 academic year that will advance one or more of the five strategic priorities identified in the Road Map.
“While we do not yet know the total amount of funding available,” Nieman explained, “we believe that we will have resources to invest in projects that will help the campus make important strides toward our goal: becoming the premier public university in the United States.”
The call for proposals is an opportunity for deans, departments, Road Map Steering Committee teams and individuals to suggest investments that will help the campus achieve the ambitious objectives outlined in the Road Map. “By casting the net broadly,” President Harvey Stenger said, “we believe that we will be able to draw on the valuable insights of dedicated faculty, staff, administrators and students to make investments that will move the campus forward in significant ways.”
Proposals will be accepted for projects that require one-time or continuing support, including non-faculty personnel, graduate students, equipment and OTPS (other than personal services). Because there is a separate process for requesting faculty positions, requests for faculty lines will not be considered through this process.
A website with additional information about the process and forms to make requests will be available by Feb. 17, and the campus will be notified of the website address. The deadline for requests is Monday, April 7, 2014. The Road Map Steering Committee, Faculty Senate Budget Committee and the vice presidents will review proposals. Final decisions on funding will be announced in July 2014, with funding for successful projects available for use on July 1, 2015.
