Building the Financial Foundation

II. JUDICIOUS STEWARDSHIP

Act of Determination 9 -- Strengthening Staffing Efficiencies

The Arts & Sciences Dean’s Office, in coordination with Human Resources, will conduct a comprehensive assessment of clerical and technical staffing to evaluate performance efficiencies and technical expertise of existing staff and to determine what additional staff will be needed in the coming decade. This is an important issue, particularly in the sciences.

Action Steps:

  • By Summer 2015 the Dean’s Office, in consultation with department chairs from the sciences, will determine future technical staffing needs for research enhancement through core facilities and within departments and will develop a plan for securing resources from a combination of fundraising reinvestment activities or from the University.

  • By Fall 2015 the Dean’s Office will determine, in consultation with Human Resources and the Provost’s Office, current staffing levels and expertise and compare these to best practices of comparable universities.

  • By Fall 2015 the Dean’s Office will determine the number of new clerical staff needed and will develop a plan of action for securing resources from a combination of fundraising reinvestment strategies or from the University.
