First Impressions

  • We have some extraordinary people, programs and activities at ISU

  • Everyone is ready to move forward.

  • Terre Haute is incredibly supportive of ISU.

  • Current resources will allow for aggressive action to meet our goals.

Goals of the first few weeks

  • Participate in as many on-campus events/activities as possible

  • Meet with primary internal constituents

  • Begin meetings with external constituents (legislators, donors, community leaders, alumni)

  • Launch new efforts in strategic areas

  • Listen, listen, listen

Campus Events

  • Pleased to be able to attend dozens of campus events, including:

    • New student orientation, move-in, other student welcome events

    • Receptions for new faculty, new student scholars, etc.

    • Welcome events for our Colleges

    • Meetings with campus governance units, student organizations , Deans & others

    • Various athletic events

Community Meetings

  • Also pleased to be able to meet with other important constituents, including

    • Local legislators and city and county officials

    • Officials from the Commission for Higher Education, the Governor’s office, State Budget Agency, General Assembly and Congress

    • Local school officials

    • Local service organizations

    • Cheri and I will be doing a tour of Indiana to meet with alumni , legislators and others throughout the state

Important Issues


  • Affirmative Action and Diversity separated into two areas, internal search for Affirmative Action Director underway, national search for Chief Diversity Officer to be launched shortly. Both areas to report to the President’s Office.

  • Diversity must be considered in the broadest context which includes ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, etc.

  • Increasing the diversity of faculty, staff and students and building awareness of and appreciation for diversity is a critical part of our future and is essential to our role in preparing students for an increasingly diverse world.

Important Issues


  • The former President’s Commission on Diversity will be reconstituted as the Indiana State University Council on Diversity. The Council will include representatives nominated by each governance unit as well as presidential appointees.

  • This Council will be instrumental in the development of policy related to diversity.

  • Anyone interested in serving should contact their governance unit or indicate their interest to my office.

Important Issues

American Democracy Project

  • As an American Democracy Project campus and a university that prides itself on preparing our students to be productive citizens, we should be encouraging everyone to vote in this year’s election.

  • I hope that each of you will exercise your right to vote, as well.

  • I was pleased to hear about the various educational programs the ADP sponsors on our campus, and I commend the faculty, staff and students involved. Voting should be an informed matter.

Important Issues

United Way

  • Another campaign which will soon commence is our campus United Way fundraising effort.

  • Cheri and I are strong believers in supporting the United Way and have seen the impact of many United Way agencies in the communities in which we have resided.

  • Everyone in this auditorium will be touched by a United Way agency at some point. This year, when our community was hit with unprecedented flooding, the United Way agencies were here to help.

Important Issues

United Way

  • Due to the closing of Pfizer, this organization needs our support now more than ever.

  • Supporting our non-profit agencies is another way we can demonstrate our commitment to Community Engagement.

  • The campus campaign will kick off on September 24. Watch the global e-mails for more information.

  • I hope you will join Cheri and me in donating what you can.

Important Issues

NCA Accreditation Process

Indiana State is scheduled for its NCA review in 2010. The University has been approved for a special emphasis self-study focus on “Becoming Recognized for National Leadership in Community Engagement and Experiential Learning.”

Designed to answer question, “How do we expand and deepen our commitment to community engagement and experiential learning?”

Important Issues

NCA Accreditation Process

As part of this process, we need your help. The NCA Steering Committee has designed a survey to obtain key information on the perceptions of campus governance

structures, diversity, professional development, mission, experiential learning and community engagement.

I encourage all faculty, administrative and support staff to visit the site (irt2.indstate.edu/surveys/nca2010) to complete the survey.

Important Issues

NCA Accreditation Process

Due to the turnover of several key leadership positions, I have formally requested a delay in the scheduling of our NCA Accreditation Process in order to allow us appropriate time for strategic planning to take place.

We anticipate hearing a response to our request in the next week or so.

Regardless, the work will continue, and it should engage the entire campus community.

Board Priorities

  • Enrollment

  • Diversify Funding

  • Develop ISU’s distinctive character traits

  • Strategic Plan Development

  • International Programs


  • Created Taskforce to jump start efforts to increase enrollment and improve retention for Fall 2009

  • Earmarked $ for use in this effort

  • Begun efforts to improve residence halls

  • Begun efforts on the Strategic Planning

Diversify Funding

  • Have met with some major donor prospects as part of ISU Foundation Comprehensive Campaign

  • Great news from the Foundation last week – A 21% increase in funds raised during 2007-08.

  • Need to work to increase sponsored projects and research.

Develop ISU’s Distinctive Character

  • Develop and Market

  • Our identified Programs of distinction

    • Involve the entire campus in planning efforts

    • Kick-Off ~ Oct 15

    • Similar processes will be followed for the general planning and the facilities/land use planning

    Hire & Retain Great People

    • Major effort will be made to reduce the number of people in interim positions.

    • Leadership will put in the time to improve the chances for good hires.

    • Salaries will be pegged to those at similar institutions to help insure that money is not a big part of the decision for candidates.

    • Will look for opportunities to upgrade Compensation and Benefits for all employee groups.

    Athletics Facilities

    • All facilities are in need of significant improvement

    • Near Term – Spend $ this fiscal year to:

      • Air condition the South Gym in the Arena Building

      • Replace marquee signs at Hulman Center and Memorial Stadium

      • Replace Turf at Stadium

      • Improve Stadium Press box

      • Improve Stadium Locker rooms

  • Plan for remodel of Hulman Center in 2 to 3 years possibly with the help of the Foundation

  • Plan for replacement of the Stadium in 5 to 7 years

  • Campus Housing

    • Many facilities are in need of significant improvement

    • Near Term – Remodel Sandison Hall to include:

      • Improved fire suppression

      • Air conditioning

      • More bathrooms

      • Academic space

  • Plan for the next generation of campus housing

  • Implement plan over the next 5-7 years

  • International Programs

    • Inventory has begun

      • Plan to identify 5 or 6 countries/institutions where we will focus our efforts.

      • Efforts will be planned and developed to have a maximum impact on students.


    • There are many great things happening at ISU. Change will be needed, however, to achieve our Vision and Mission while living our VALUES.

    • I have pledged to the trustees that significant progress will be made by this time next year. I hope that all of you will help make that happen
