Comprehensive Administrative Operations Calendar
The Office of the Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
is producing its first Campus Administrative Operations Calendar.
The calendar is a snapshot of anticipated changes for the coming
academic year set in the context of major administrative operational
milestones, such as the budget process, fiscal close, etc. It
is being published for campus staff as a reminder of activities
that might have an impact in the coming academic year. The calendar
was created in response to requests for improved internal communication
and collaboration to allow for better work across divisions.
This Administrative Operations Calendar will supplement campuswide
calendars already in existence, such as the Academic Administrative
Calendar and the Campus Events Calendar, and replaces last year's
Campus Transformation Update Newsletter. While a first and imperfect
step in many ways, this calendar will be a process of continuous
improvement guided by campus input and suggestions.
If feedback suggests this is a valuable tool, the hard copy
version, which is being distributed to staff, will be produced
annually and may be expanded to faculty and others. Given that
certain pieces of information will most likely change over the
next several months, the calendar also has a web site, located
