Public input on regional campuses sought
A Miami task force wants community input as it continues to examine issues affecting the Hamilton and Middletown campuses, including whether or not the regional campuses offer the appropriate mix of degree programs.
The task force, established this fall under the authority of the First in 2009 Coordinating Council, is addressing the following charges:
• Identify the most important issues facing the regional campuses that need attention, prioritize them and develop recommendations for action;
• Consider the most appropriate relationships among the three campuses;
• Determine the strategic and programmatic directions for the regional campuses, including the appropriate mix of degree programs and the appropriate degree of outreach and public service.
There will be six open forums to solicit comments and recommendations. The general public, students, faculty and staff on all three campuses are invited to participate in the open forum most convenient for them. The six forums are scheduled for:
• Jan. 20, noon-1 p.m., Miami Middletown, Johnston Hall Lobby
• Jan. 20, 3:30-4:30 p.m., Miami Middletown, Johnston Hall Lobby
• Jan. 24, 3-4 p.m., Miami Hamilton, Harry T. Wilks Conference Center
• Jan. 24, 5-6 p.m., Miami Hamilton, Harry T. Wilks Conference Center
• Feb. 4, noon-1 p.m., Benjamin Harrison Room of the Shriver Center. This forum will focus on discussion with relocated students.
• Feb. 4, 3-4 p.m., 111 Harrison Hall
The task force is tri-chaired by Judith Delzell, interim associate provost; Daniel Hall, executive director of the Hamilton campus; and Mike Governanti, executive director of the Middletown campus. Other members include Marilyn Anderson (nursing, Middletown), Donald Byrkett (computer science and systems analysis), David Hergert (engineering technology, Hamilton), Rebecca Hickam, graduate assistant, Middletown; Cynthia Lewiecki-Wilson (English), Diana Royer (English, Hamilton), and Rob Schorman (history, Middletown).
According to Hall, “this is important to the future of the regional campuses. We want to examine how the three campuses of Miami can better meet the needs of the community and the region.”
For additional information, contact Carole Johnson, Miami Hamilton's director of public relations at 5-3184 or any member of the task force.
