President's Charge to EPC

"...I outlined to the community and to our Board of Trustees, just this past Friday our two-step plan. Part one of this plan would be completed by June 30, 2010, barely 60 days from today. Step two would be completed by January 2011.  Step one of the plan would account for what we believe will be at least a cut of 3.1% and our expectation that operating expenses will increase at least 2.5%. We identified a number of departmental consolidations, we've restricted hiring to critical personnel only, we've identified energy savings that we will accomplish by June 30 of this year. The second step, we defined as a positioning step that will focus our analyses and planning to identify an action plan to be completed by January 2011. This includes the development of the criteria that we will use to identify 6 new academic degree programs or to identify 6 existing growing programs where increased investments will result in a more capacity to serve student need and student interest. Likewise, we will use this criteria to identify 6 programs that will be terminated and their department funds reallocated." (House Testimony)
