Director of Masters program in Teaching ESL ($45,000)—proposed
Conclusion At this time, the Co-Curricular subcommittee has recommendations with resource implications of $30,273,147, as are reflected in the attached Excel document, which we believe need to be completed in the 1-3, 3-5 and 5+ year time frames. Currently our policies do not interfere, with the exception of budgets, with our desired changes on the Fayette campus.
We also discussed the value of a university center with an auditorium, meeting rooms, grouping of offices (Student Development, Academic Advising, Tutoring, basically a one-stop shop), moving the cafeteria into that space for ease of serving various events and having other eating options, such as fast food, Starbucks, etc. in the facility. We realize this type of facility, which we valued at $15 million, would need to be in the 5+ year category.
It was unanimously agreed that we have to have faculty/staff/student buy-in before the concept of global citizen will be successful. In an effort to accomplish that goal, it was suggested that our Student Activities Board review our current university mission and vision statements and create a student perspective mission and vision statement that can be incorporated into all programming. Louise and Karla will visit with individuals in that area to discuss and develop this concept.
