New Strategery Plan, Academic Program Mergers Announced

Facing an ever-deepening budget crisis, The Western™ has embarked on a radical reformulation of the long term Strategery Plan.

On Friday, outgoing Provost Barbara Burch announced that several educational units will merge in order to reduce academic overhead, which is Goal Number One of the new Strategery Plan.

Newly merged departments, programs, and colleges will include:

  • Department of Philosophical Geology
  • Forensic Astronomy Program
  • Department of Military Film Studies
  • ICSET School of Combustion Theatre
  • DELOgden College of Teach-O-Metric Sciences
  • Department of English and Communication Disorders
  • Department of Athletic Nursing
  • Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, Sport, History, Family Sciences, Sociology, and Marketing
  • University Agriculture Experience

Cost savings achieved by the mergers will be used to create several new, urgently-needed slots in academic administration, including a Vice President for Engaging Student Engagement, a Dean and two Assistant Deans of Digital Measures Implementation, a Director of Credit Hour Production Statistics and Reporting Services, a Dean of Leading American University Initiatives, a Dean of International Reaching, a Vice President for Navitas Revenue Streams, a Director of Digital Commons Management, as well as an Assistant Vice Provost for Procuring Administrative Raises.

President Ransdell also announced that he will combine the two Deans With Two First Names into One Dean with Eight First Names.

Coupon, stupid!

Reward Offered
