ECM Faculty Focus
With the release of proposals from the Formal Governance, Discipline and Research Themes working parties, the One Faculty, One Future project moves into a phase of open consultation across the Faculty on their proposals.
- The Formal Governance, Discipline and Research Themes working parties have considered the feedback from the last Faculty Representative Panel and made amendments to their proposals as appropriate. The proposals from these working parties are now available for feedback from the Faculty. To ensure all staff are given the opportunity for consideration, comment and feedback in this important process the timeline has been extended to close of business on Monday, 15th February 2010. All staff are strongly encouraged to provide feedback.
- Once this feedback period has closed, the Working Parties will meet to consider the feedback in relation to their proposals and make any necessary adjustments. The final recommendations will then be presented to the Dean to take to the Full Faculty for endorsement. At this stage, the Full Faculty meeting is scheduled for Thursday, 8 April 2010 from 1pm, although further details will be provided in due course. This is in the non-teaching study break for Semester 1 to ensure as many staff as possible will be able to attend.
- The Budgetary Principles Advisory Panel members have had several meetings and are continuing their efforts in establishing the principles for this key element, with input into the process provided by Mr Keith Rapper of the Business School at the last meeting.
- The Culture, Teamwork and Collegiality Working Party continues to work towards its first set of recommendations. The initial discussions held to date have been targeted towards the shared identity and goals and what this encompasses, how we, as a whole can plant the seed to nurture and grow a Faculty where people will be able to work harmoniously, break down barriers, embrace diversity, respect and trust each other and share accountability. More from this Working Party will be reported in 2010.
