  • Assumptions to develop models:
  • Colleges can have departments and schools but schools cannot have departments
  • If we remain with a department model, we will have fewer and larger departments.
  • Schools will have a full-time director. Departments will have a chair. Program areas will have a coordinator.
  • Reassigned time for department chairs and program area coordinators will be consistent with the Inter Faculty Organization agreement.
  • Our new organizational structure must have a lower overall administrative cost.
  • Schools, departments and program areas should have a similar size and scale of operation, and support functions will be equitable distributed.

Distinctive Characteristics: We believe that St. Cloud State

has four distinctive characteristics, or sets of knowledge,

strengths and qualities, that we must focus on if we are to

achieve our goal of becoming the best comprehensive

state university in the Upper Midwest.   

Accessibility that leads to success: St. Cloud State University will become distinctive by providing access to a high quality education with a commitment to individual student success.

Character that reflects our region: St. Cloud State University will become distinctive by offering an array of programs that reflect the character of our region with a commitment to meeting the needs of our community.

Education that drives knowledge into action: St. Cloud State University will become distinctive by preparing our students for success in work and life through integrated learning and the expert and innovative application of knowledge.

A portfolio of distinctive programs:  St. Cloud State University will become distinctive by building on our prominent programs with the addition of new programs that hold the greatest promise of contributing to our future success.

Overarching themes that define an integrated student experience to attain distinction

  • The following are conversation starters, there may be many other questions and these will be collected during the course of discussions that will take place through the fall and beyond.
  • How does each model address the outcomes of:
    • improving organizational connectedness
    • facilitating inter- and multidisciplinary work and innovation
    • embedding flexibility and feedback loops into the system and structures
    • decreasing administrative overhead
  • Are we best served administratively by a 3, 4, or 5-college model?
  • What are the implications of these different models on the supervisory and evaluative functions?
  • Should degree programs be
  • housed within institutes
  • and centers?
  • Should rostering occur
  • within institutes & centers?
  • What is the appropriate
  • administrative oversight
  • for institutes and centers?

We are not alone with our budgetary concerns

See these links:

“As signs of a tentative economic rebound hearten students and parents in states such as North Dakota and Arkansas, continuing high unemployment and state budget crises could lead to funding cuts to public colleges and universities in Nevada, Louisiana, Illinois, and many other states. Unless officials in troubled states find new tax dollars to support their colleges, administrators will have little choice but to impose hefty tuition increases or reduce the number of classes and services offered on campus…”
