Vice presidents share goals for 2005-06

University vice presidents shared their visions for the school year with members of the University Council during a Sept. 16 meeting.

The reports contained individual objectives, but common themes were plans to meet the University’s changing needs, improve technology and access to it and encourage staff development.

Highlights included:
• Provost Mary Ann Swain’s suggestion that Bing-hamton develop a three-year plan for faculty hiring that would take into account projected enrollment as well as projected retirements. The Division of Academic Affairs will also develop a multi-year plan for growth in undergraduate and graduate enrollment, she said.

• Discussion of a broad range of University facilities, from plans for a new center in downtown Binghamton to ongoing work at the Innovative Technologies Complex and the future of the Dickinson and Newing residential communities.

• A plan from the Division of Student Affairs to increase experiential learning as well as volunteer oppor-tunities for students. Vice President Rodger Summers also said the division may find a way to put the housing assignment process online.

The five divisions have different objectives, but all will work together to advance the key goals outlined in the strategic plan:

• Invest in academic excellence, innovation, growth and diversification.
• Enhance engagement and outreach.
• Create an adaptive infrastructure to support our mission.
• Foster a campus culture of diversity, respect and success.
