Please join me on Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010, for my annual State of the Campus address. This year, I will share with you a “roadmap” that is being developed to guide the campus to achieve our aspirations. The roadmap strives to more fully integrate IUPUI planning documents, the academic plan, the master plan for facilities, and President McRobbie’s “Principles of Excellence,” into a comprehensive strategy. The address will be at 4 p.m. in Joseph E. Walther Hall (Research III) Room 203, 980 Walnut St., immediately following the Faculty Council meeting.
The “roadmap” will also plan for optimal use of resources; therefore, I will provide an update on the work of the Resource Planning Committee, chaired by Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Dawn Rhodes. This committee has been newly constituted to include representatives of the Council of Deans, the Faculty Council, and Staff Council. It provides a cross-campus forum for discussing and proposing long-term strategies in resource management.
Increasing resources is as important as managing them wisely. The IUPUI Impact Campaign, which was officially launched in October, will demand more and more of my time in the coming years. You will hear how we plan to proceed, with your help, to accomplish our ambitious $1.25 billion goal.
Because we have important matters to bring before our university community, I hope that department heads and supervisors will allow faculty and staff to attend the State of the Campus address as part of their regular work day.
