Feedback Sought on College Reorganization

Note: The following e-mail was sent on 2/15/11 to all faculty and staff.


Dear Colleague:


In my February 4th message to faculty and staff, I noted that after receiving the report of the University Planning Advisory Council (UPAC), I had accepted the vast majority of UPAC’s work and began the process of moving ahead on most of its 22 recommendations. I also conveyed that Provost Rosser and I support a reorganization of the University's college structure.


While Provost Rosser and I concur with the merits of reorganizing the University from its current eight-college structure, we determined that the concept needs further discussion. Toward that end, and in accordance with Academic Senate policy, I asked the Senate to conduct a referendum to seek the advice of faculty on three alternatives for college reorganization. Voting on the referendum began on Friday, February 11.  As is the case with such referenda, voting is limited to members of faculty.


In addition to the ballot, we have set up a feedback page to allow faculty and staff to share their comments on the three proposals. To view the proposals and provide feedback, please visit http://www.sfsu.edu/~news/announce/feedback.htm . While faculty ballots must be submitted by Tuesday, February 22, this page will accept feedback through Friday, February 25. Your perspective is important to us as we evaluate these alternatives, and I hope you will take the time and opportunity to share your comments.


--Robert A. Corrigan, president
