Academic Resource Management
Promoting improvements for you
The vice provost is working with his team to oversee the university's academic budget, manage academic space, provide data and services for assessment and evaluation, and monitor implementation of the university's strategic plan.
Academic Budget Development
Oversees the development of the educational and general budget through both a performance budget model and an annual process that solicits and responds to prioritized request from each academic VP and college, and provides one time support for special initiatives throughout the fiscal year.
Inlcudes classrooms, teaching laboratories, research laboratories, library, and faculty and academic support offices. We promote the effective use of space through the assignment/reassignment of existing space and the prioritization of new capital projects and renovations.
Analytics & Institutional Effectiveness
Promotes the accomplishment of the university strategic plan and monitors progress against the goals of the plan through the tracking and reporting of high level metrics.
