  26. 26. “Creating A More Educated Georgia” Objective The University System of Georgia is preparing students for the 21st century economy and citizenship. Today the System must look internally to ensure that it has a 21st century structure, providing a network of institutions offering the proper range of degrees and opportunities in research and service to students and faculty. The purpose of campus consolidation is to increase the system’s overall effectiveness in creating a more educated Georgia. 26
  27. 27. “Creating A More Educated Georgia” Guiding Principles The following principles guided the consolidation analysis; each principle was considered equally in this analysis: 1. Increase opportunities to raise education attainment levels. 2. Improve accessibility, regional identity, and compatibility. 3. Avoid duplication of academic programs while optimizing access to instruction. 4. Create significant potential for economies of scale and scope. 5. Enhance regional economic development. 6. Streamline administrative services while maintaining or improving service level and quality. 27
  28. 28. “Creating A More Educated Georgia” Implementation Principles • Principles – Leadership – A clear, unified leadership structure shall be established and maintained. – Simplicity – Consolidated institutions will merge functions and merge leadership positions; inefficient and complex reporting relationships will be avoided. – Oversight –The Regents’ Special Committee on Consolidation shall oversee consolidation efforts and results. – Transparency – Consolidation results will be monitored and presented to interested parties. Lessons learned will be actively shared with all participating institutions. – Maximize use of distance education. 28
  29. 29. “Creating A More Educated Georgia” Initial Steps • Initial Steps – Create Steering Committee for Implementation (for merged institutions) • Key stakeholders to include faculty, staff, students, alumni, foundation, community leaders • Cabinet Members • USO Point of Contact – Designate implementation leader • President – Establish Reporting Format / Key Indicators 29
