ECM Faculty Focus
The Co-Chairs of the Strategic Review 2009 continue to make progress on the review as the deadline for final plans and recommendations moves closer.
Staff are asked to continue to look at the Strategic Review website, and are asked to encourage collegause to participate in this important process, to ensure that we get a variety of reviews. This will enable us to build onto the best possible outcomes.
Summary of Progress
The Governance and Management Co-Chairs, Greg Ivey and Nick Spadiccini, held their first open scoping workshop on the 7 May, with 45 people participating. The Co-Chairs are now working on an issues paper, as well as developing inputs for the options paper. Submissions are encouraged to this review area, especially where Staff were unable to participate in the workshop, on both the issues facing the Faculty and potential options for the future.
The Education and Research Co-Chairs continue to work on developing strategic options, models, principles and values for the future, which will culminate in the publication of an options paper released to the Faculty. Staff submissions are encouraged to assist in this process - there are no pre-determined outcomes, so it is essential that your ideas are included to produce the best possible framework for the future;
The Industry and Community Engagement, Alumni and Foundations Co-Chairs are preparing for the release of their issues paper in coming weeks;
The Infrastructure Co-Chairs are currently in the workshop and focus group planning stages, with a tight timeline that will ensure that open consultation is held on the issues and options, whilst still providing recommendations within the review timeframe;
The Co-Chairs will be participating in a workshop on the 22 May 2009 that will begin the process of comparing and contrasting ideas and issues, and developing a wholistic approach that encompasses the inputs of each of the review areas;
Submissions - Staff are encouraged to make submissions to the Review on any aspect and relating to any of the review areas. This can include current issues faced by the Faculty, or options, models, principles or suggestions for the future. It is important that submissions are made as soon as possible to enable them to be properly considered;
Research Issues Paper - A reminder that the Research Issues Paper has been released and is available for consideration and comment. All staff are asked to consider making a submission to this area, either on the issues identified or on options, models, principles and values for the future;
Education Issues Paper - The Education Co-Chairs, James Trevelyan and Gordon Royle, have released their Education Issues Paper. Submissions are invited on this paper, as well as options for the future;
