ACADEMIC SENATE - SAN DIEGO DIVISION
September 28, 2009
ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD
ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
In response to the severe impact of the State budget crisis and the resulting drastic budget cuts to the University, a joint Senate-Administration Task Force on Budget has been established. The Task Force is charged with providing recommendations for sustaining UC San Diego’s academic excellence and stature as a world-class research university, while protecting our core mission of accessibility, teaching, and research through cost savings and increased efficiency, increased non-State revenues, and strong alignment of academic programs with institutional priorities. Senior Vice Chancellor Paul Drake and Professor Dan Donoghue (immediate past Chair of the Academic Senate) will serve as co-chairs of this Task Force. The target date for completion of the Task Force’s report is January 2010.
The Task Force membership includes:
SVC Paul Drake (Academic Affairs) Co-Chair
Professor Sandra Brown (Psychology/Psychiatry)
Staff Representative (TBD)
Graduate Student Representative (TBD)
Undergraduate Student Representative (TBD)
We invite faculty, staff and students to submit ideas regarding ways in which the campus might address the budget crisis. Your comments can be sent to Janice Klippel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
