Recurring Operational and Human Resource Needs

It is critical to identify what resources UIS needs to address the action steps in this plan.

With substantial input from team leaders, the Provost’s Office has prepared the following estimates of the incremental new resources needed to support the activities and projects summarized in Goal #6.  The process of preparing these estimates included factoring in current levels of funding for some activities described in the plan and identifying overlaps between similar initiatives presented under more than one goal.

These figures are estimates, providing an indication of the overall magnitude of the resource needs. They do not constitute funding decisions or specific commitments. Decisions about specific commitments will need to be based on refinement of these estimates, the availability of funds, and deliberations about the priorities among these initiatives.
