Options for consideration
Options for Consideration

  • 1. Keep the current structure of having a Vice Provost of Undergraduate Studies and a Vice

    Provost of Graduate Studies so they can continue to function as currently operating. This recommendation would not require new administrators or changes in office, other than to determine their proper interaction with the new colleges and Vice Provost & Deans.

Options for consideration1
Options for Consideration

  • 1. (cont.) Both Vice Provost positions be renamed as Vice Provost & Dean. Furthermore, it is recommended that the VPGS be transformed to the position of “Vice Provost & Dean of the Graduate School.” These changes would not increase the number of administrators, but would create two new Vice Provost & Dean positions (replacing the VPGS and VPUS).

Options for consideration2
Options for Consideration

  • 2. Locate the staff (five) and all functions that remain listed under the VPAA and not currently reassigned to another entity other than the Provost within an “Administrative Support Center” that would report to either the Provost, the Budget Office, Human Resources or some other entity. At this point the APC does not feel that it has enough information to make a suggestion regarding the exact function of the Administrative Support Center, or to whom the staff of the new center should report.

Options for consideration3
Options for Consideration

3. Create a “Teaching and Learning Center” that would incorporate CERTI, EdTech, the New Faculty Forum, the New Faculty Orientation, and the UM Faculty Scholars. Such a combination would create one location for many teaching and faculty development activities on campus.

Options for consideration4
Options for Consideration

  • 4. Utilizing existing resources and staff, consider the option of creating new centers or groups, such as the Administrative Support Center (see item 2), that would serve both academic and non-academic departments that are unable to hire or support staff that can help full-time with budget, communication and other relevant department functions that are necessary to serve students, faculty and staff. Examples include a Financial Support Center and a Communication Support Center, among others.

Resources planning committee1
Resources Planning Committee

The Resources Planning Committee will coordinate extensively with the other major restructuring planning committees by helping to identify the number of personnel positions required to accomplish those financial, administrative, academic, and outreach responsibilities and activities that the other committees have identified as being essential and continuing in need. There will be a committee chair that oversees the two subcommittees.

Personnel and financial resources subcommittee
Personnel and Financial Resources Subcommittee

Personnel and Financial Resources Subcommittee will be responsible for identifying the type and number of positions that will be required for each Vice Provost/Dean's office. Once these positions have been approved, the availability of these positions will be announced through HRSAADI as open for internal candidates and those individuals being displaced by the reorganization will be given the opportunity to apply for the new position recommendations. In addition, this committee will research the financial structure of similar deans’ offices and estimate the funds needed to support the various deans’ offices non-personnel needs, functions and activities (e.g., office operations, travel, unplanned support for reporting units, proposal matches, etc.). (This committee will not establish the VPDs budgets.)

Six committees


  • Membership and Organization

    The faculty of the colleges consists of all tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure track full-time faculty members holding the rank of instructor or above in the departments that belong to the college, its Dean, and any of its Associate or Assistant Deans. Faculty whose appointment is divided between colleges may participate in deliberations of these colleges, but shall be a voting member of only the college in which they hold their primary appointment. The Provost, Vice Provosts, and the Chancellor also serve as ex officio members.

    The chief executive and administrative officer of each college is its Dean. When the position of Dean is vacated, a search and screening committee consisting of only individuals elected by the college tenured/tenure track faculty will search for and screen applicants (in accordance with Missouri S&T EEO/AA procedures), will select candidates to be interviewed, and will interview them with the assistance of other faculty, administrators, staff, and students. Up to five candidates will then be selected by a majority vote of the college tenured/tenure track faculty, and the names of the selected candidates will be forwarded to the Provost. The Provost then shall select one of the nominated candidates to be the new Dean, or return the search to the committee with an explanation of why the candidates are unacceptable or unavailable. The committee will operate until a new Dean is selected.

Passed by Faculty Senate on 20 March, awaiting action by System

Six committees

  • Meetings

    Each college faculty will meet at least once a semester at the call of its Dean. A quorum shall consist of twenty (20) percent of the members when business described in the published agenda is being considered and fifty percent when other items of business are being considered. Notice of all meetings of the faculty of a college shall be sent to each member of that college at least one week prior to the meeting. Such notice includes the agenda for the meeting. The Dean is the presiding officer.

    Special Meetings -- Special meetings are called upon request of the Dean of the college or by written petition of ten (10) percent of the membership. All special meetings shall be called within two weeks after the request has been made.

    Responsibility and Authority -- Each college faculty, acting in accordance with the Rules and Regulations established by the Board of Curators and Campus Policy, shall have delegated directly to it by the General Faculty jurisdiction over matters primarily of interest only to that college. This includes appeals of departmental academic actions and establishment of new certificates, minors, and degree programs, with a primary responsibility for maintaining and improving the academic excellence of all departments within the college.
