Reminder: Campus Forum on Strategic Planning on Tuesday, February 8

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

You are invited to a Campus Forum on Strategic Planning on Tuesday, February 8 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. in the Kirby Ballroom. Chancellor Lendley C. Black and Strategic Planning Steering Committee members will describe progress on several aspects of the planning process and will seek your feedback on drafts of a revised mission statement and a statement of core campus values. All forum participants will be invited to help shape a vision for UMD in 2020, the next important step in the planning process.

We hope that many members of the UMD community can participate in this important forum on February 8. If you are unable to attend, please review the Strategic Planning website at http://www.d.umn.edu/chancellor/planning/ to learn about the planning process and to share your comments on the progress to date.

Thank you.

Vice Chancellor Reorganization Update

To UMD Campus Community:

Thank you for helping to make the transition smooth for the upcoming administrative changes at the vice chancellor level. I appreciate everyone who attended my small-group meetings with faculty and staff over the past few months. Your comments and advice during these discussions helped me refine this new organizational structure.

I would like to announce the following updates to two vice chancellor positions:

Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs:

A national search has begun for the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, who will serve as the chief academic officer and will represent the Chancellor as needed. This position will keep the current functions of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Administration and will be expanded to include the Office of Financial Aid and Registrar, the Office of Admissions, and the First Year Experience Program. The Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs will oversee all of the academic functions of the campus and will coordinate the activities of the other members of the Chancellor's Cabinet.

Vice Chancellor for Student Life:

A national search will begin soon for a Vice Chancellor for Student Life. This position will be expanded to include all of Auxiliary Services (Housing, Bookstore, Food Services, etc.). The Vice Chancellor for Student Life will also keep the current functions of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Support and Student Life, except that the Office of Financial Aid and Registrar, the Office of Admissions and the First Year Experience Program will move to the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

-Chancellor Lendley C. Black
