FY 20 Budget Planning Task Forces
FY22 Strategic Initiative Proposals/Research:
Task force on Adjunct Teaching- what is the best use of adjunct teaching across UAF and how do we balance adjunct vs. full time faculty to optimize resource use and the student experience?
Task Force on Class Sizes-what are the optimum class sizes at different levels and fields at UAF and how do we achieve those results while improving the student experience? How do we achieve an average class size that is closer to our peers, possibly through larger GERs to account for smaller upper division and graduate classes?
Task Force for eCampus Integration- in what ways can eCampus be further developed or utilized to improve the student experience, increase options for students and reduce costs?
Task Force for Research Repositioning- Identify the key areas where UAF has established its research excellence and can sustain growth primarily through external funding? Project the leadership potential and sustainability plans for these key research areas. Outline areas of research or research support where expenditures could or should be reduced, along with a tentative plan and timeline for reductions.
Task Force on Non-credit Credentials- how do we credential non-credit programs and account for non-credit "enrollment".
Task Force for Policies and Procedures- what UAF or system level procedures are unnecessarily burdensome and could be modified to create efficiencies?
