CHARGE TO NEW REALITY TEAMS
Teams are to study and discuss ideas generated in the Changing Landscape sessions (see the Back Channel Transcripts), investigate what other institutions are doing, identify models that might be enhanced or modified, and brainstorm what other innovative ideas might be well-suited to our campus. Additional resources are on the New REALITY website http://www.siue.edu/provost/newrealityproject/.
Teams should meet twice monthly. Tasks may be assigned to sub-committees. Each team should plan to propose two short-term initiatives. These initiatives should represent first steps that can be taken quickly in making appropriate changes for the university. Also, each team will propose three long-term initiatives that will require a longer time to accomplish or may need more financial planning to identify appropriate resources.
Final reports will be posted to the project website and shared with the university community. Final reports and recommendations are due by Friday, January 10, 2014. Reports should be sent via email to Denise Cobb at firstname.lastname@example.org. A Steering Committee comprised of all work team chairs and the New REALITY team will meet to discuss the reports and prioritize initiatives in anticipation of presenting these to the Chancellor.
