Update From the President
April 1, 2013
To the University community,
Two important pieces of news came out this week. First, the Cabinet and I have decided that "summer hours" will continue in Stockton for summer 2013. They will take place June 3-July 31. (In Sacramento, Dean Mootz will make summer scheduling decisions soon.) Next year, in summer 2014, Stockton will introduce a new practice of summer flex hours. Read my full communication here.
The other key item concerns Focusing on Our Future. The Institutional Priorities Committee (IPC) and deans have weighed in on a reallocation process for next year. Their recommendations respond to a draft framework the Cabinet and I proposed. I encourage you to read their recommendations along with the original framework on Inside Pacific's new Focusing on Our Future tab. Soon the Strategic Planning Committee (SPC) will release recommendations for a program prioritization process. I will have more to say about both processes in the April 8 Pacific Insider.
