  1. 1. presents Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force On State Higher Education Reform Collaborative Workshop July 26, 2012 Real-Time Record………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… *The Collaborative Labs is a venture by St Petersburg College
  2. 2. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Welcome and Opening Remarkswww.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 2 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  3. 3. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Dr. Dale A. Brill, Chair, Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force: Welcome, everyone. My name is Dale Brill and I serve as the Chair of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on State Higher Education Reform. I am the person who has bombarded you with emails over the past several weeks. Before we do introductions, I want to extend a general thank you. The Collaborative Labs experience is unique and I hope you are overwhelmed with the collaborative work from today. Different perspectives help us find common ground. The keyhere is to listen first, borrowing from Stephen Covey. As you go through this process, the apprehension aboutwhat you’ve gotten yourself into will gradually leave you. We are with the best facilitation group I know. theywill help us listen, seek to understand each other and find win-win solutions.There are more advanced degrees in the room than anyone could hope to imagine. I’d like us to get a feel forwho is in the room today. Let me introduce my fellow Task Force members: Jeff Shuman, Representative BillProctor, Representative Marlene O’Toole, Joseph Caruncho and John Delaney. I regret that Frank Fuller isunable to be with us as he is fighting walking pneumonia.Please stand as I recognize the group you represent today: The Board of Governors is here. The HigherEducation Coordinating Council is here. Students and/or parents. From the Administration side of theUniversity system, Presidents, Provosts. Faculty. Faculty get the award for the most phone calls and emailsabout the topics so far. The business community. The Legislative Process – those who are in the legislature orserve as staff in the process. There are also members of the Boards of Trustees of the universities.In just a few minutes, I’ll be turning this over to Andrea Henning. But first, we have the privilege of being theguest of Dr. Bill Law, President of St. Petersburg College. When I asked if we could use this location and hesaid, “Of, course.” By the end of the afternoon, other university presidents will be asking for CollaborativeLabs of their own.Dr. Bill Law: Welcome to St. Petersburg College. We’ve hosted a number of events withDale here at the Collaborative Labs. We started with the Six Pillars Caucus System whohave met here twice now. Both were highly successful. When DEO asked to put together astrategic plan for the state, we helped do that here. You are very welcome to be here.Higher education is a different kind of environment. Frank Brogan and I have been friendsfor years. I asked him why some people just hate you immediately as a college president. He said, “In yourcase, it saves time.”What happens here today is that you get a chance to put your vision together and move it forward. I alsorepresent the Florida college system. St. Petersburg College was the first out of the box to offerbaccalaureate degrees. Last year, we awarded 1,000 baccalaureate degrees. Only a small percentage wereunder 22 years old. Twenty-five percent were 40 years or older. Ninety-five percent went at least onesummer. Two-thirds went every summer. We have a public policy; it’s highly supportive of the kinds of thingswe’re trying to achieve. We stand together to improve the lives of Floridians. We are honored to have youhere today.Dr. Brill: I want to draw your attention to the agenda. I understand that some of you will be bouncing in andout of the activities. I appreciate your being here. What happens today happens so fast that it’s easy to losetrack of what has gone on in your absence. You are coming to this workshop with the question of focus beinghow we improve and advance the higher education system from our different perspectives. So, I’m askingyou to listen and understand what others are saying. This is meant to cast as wide a net as possible to hearyour input. You are not being asked to become the Task Force yourself. That’s why I introduced the TaskForce first. We will be listening and learning from you and with you today. We are at the mid-point of thewww.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 3 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  4. 4. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Task Force. When we’re done today, we’ll be on the “back nine," to use a golf analogy, and will move frominput to analysis. Well certainly be analyzing what comes out today. If there is something you want to sharewith the Task Force after today, just send it to me and I’ll send it along or post it on the website. We aredesperately seeking to understand how you see the world as input to our recommendations to the Governor.You will break out into “buckets” today. We’ll be talking about issues of governance, accountability andfunding as detailed in the Governors Executive Order. In addition, we’ll surely look at system-wide issues. Ifyou find yourself in an area that doesn’t fit your expertise, just wait, because during the process youll move alot between different work groups. We will leverage technology that will allow the smaller groups to see what the other groups are doing. Smaller groups tend to have more conversation. I’m going to ask you to listen first and avoid the temptation to be the smartest person in the group. Let’s talk about the 800 pound gorilla in the room. I mentioned that we are here to change the status quo. The Board of Governors has published a strategic plan that is visionary. We are not here to re-write it wholesale – we’re here to accelerate, support and perhapsimprove it. The Task Force is not trying to usurp their work. The three boxes that we’re discussing aredifferent from different strategic buckets than other task force initiatives that the BOG has announced.While the way we’ve been doing things has to change, I want to resist change just for the sake of change.Defensive postures that we may take won’t work because the increasingly it is clear that we must change.The folks inside the institutions might resist this pressure from outside, because it may be seen as interfering.Nonetheless, the call for change persists. The students are saying they want the best education available thatwill give them jobs. I can go around the room; we each have our own perspectives. We can do this togetherthrough collaboration. The question is, “How can we support the BOG and their vision?”I hope that the reading materials that I sent out got you to at least raise an eyebrow. While no specificendorsement was implied, I felt the views were instructive and well-constructed. These views and others arethose which you may not have been exposed to before today. Try to analyze it and integrate it into your worktoday. Now, let me introduce Andrea Henning, the leader of the Collaborative Labs: Andrea Henning, Executive Director, Collaborative Labs: Welcome Florida Leaders! We’re going to have a great day today because you are here. You are not only the most intelligent, but the best looking group we’ve had. We’re here to determine how Florida can become the national model for higher education in 2017. We can do in six hours with our unique collaborative process, what can sometimes take weeks, months or never to accomplish. Let me share our objectives.First, we’ll leverage our Strengths/Best Practicesacross Florida’s University System. We use aprocess called Appreciative Inquiry. It is strength-based, rather than deficit-based. We’ve done thissuccessfully with thousands of organizations. Whenyou focus on strengths and the ideal future, youhave better outcomes. The challenges and problemsare not the focus, but a part of the process.Continue to infuse the strengths into your worktoday.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 4 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  5. 5. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Our second objective is to define what success in State Higher Education looks like over the next 3-5 years.After lunch, you’ll build 3-year recommendations in the areas of governance, accountability and tuition. Let’stake a look at what you’ve written on the boards for the first activity. Let me introduce Milo Paich, ourfacilitator extraordinaire. He’ll invite you to share two to three best practices in each of these three areas.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 5 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  6. 6. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Activity 1: “The Best of Florida Universities”Welcome to the Collaborative Labs! Let’s get started right away.“Walk about” and consider a strength/best practice within Florida Universities that you’d like torecognize.There are four Best Practice Walls on which your example might fit, as a5-to-8 word example or free-handed illustration: Wall #1: Wall #2: Wall #3: Wall #4: Governance Accountability Tuition “System Wide”Each participant, please contribute at least one strength/best practice to any one of thewalls.We’ll kick off the engagement by leading a round of “laser reporting” where you can volunteer toshare your example.All of your contributions to the Best Practice Walls will be captured for the real-time record.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 6 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu

  11. 11. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Milo: Who would like to share a 10-second sound bite about one of these strengths? Harrison Sherwin: Our BOT and BOG – we always make sure there is a student representative elected. Jack Sullivan: We have committed Boards of Trustees across the Florida system. Milo: Let’s shift to accountability.Bill Law: I don’t think there is any question that we have the best 2+2 system in Florida.Milo: Here are a few more comments under Accountability: Commitment to identifying andevaluating appropriate measures. Impact of research productivity, patents and awards.Balance of accountability. There were a couple of things on governance as well. How about Tuition? BrightFutures, a commitment to relative affordability, accessibility, needs-based and one of the most affordable.We also had a whiteboard for system-wide strengths: Geographic locations of universities with a full range ofcourses. Drivers of economic engines. Flexible and efficient delivery. We have supportive boards andadministration. We have industry and academic partners and we honor each university’s distinctive mission. Speaker: Having a mix of local and system boards is a best practice. Having experienced all the different mixes, this is the best. It’s sensitive to local needs with statewide goals.

  16. 16. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Activity 2: “2017 Florida University System Success – the Nation’s Model”Milo: Welcome back, everybody. You’ve seen the process by which these cover stories have been produced.Each team has had a chance to choose a magazine or to make up their own.Andrea: Let’s start with our magazine reports – your vision of the future.Milo: We’ll ask each team to send two presenters to the front to walk the group through their magazinecover.Team 1:Sherry Plymale and CurtisAustin: I’d like to thank our FSUstudent, Alex, for keyboarding. Wepicked the Wall Street Journalbecause a few years ago, they had aheadline of, “Is Florida Over?” Wehad a Board of Governors that iscoordinated. Also, lump sum thefunding into the process. Gettingbeyond the tuition debate. Having ayear-round school. We talked aboutcross-institution programs. A systempresence rather than just aninstitution presence. How do we poolour resources and take a look at howwe’re doing business?www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 16 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  17. 17. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 2:Reuben Stokes and Blair Sapp: We chose the Wall Street Journal for driving the economic side of it.Florida university system derives diversification, expansion and transformation of Florida’s globally competitiveeconomy. Governance has reached a consensus over shared goals. Global metrics have exceededstakeholders’ expectations. Variable tuition and mission-based funding promotes excellence and access.Milo: Around accountability, you mentioned metrics – any particular metrics?Blair: Not particularly, just to make sure that when you set goals, they are accomplished.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 17 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  18. 18. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 3:Harrison Dubosar and Harrison Sherwin: We focused on accountability. Florida system delivers toptalent globally. We were talking a lot about having important start-ups that evolve in Florida. We reallywanted to include start-ups in the headline. Global perspective rather than just in Florida. Helping ourgraduates succeed after they go out and bring it back to Florida. Meeting general needs as well as issuesevolving around the disabled. Florida graduates lead the nation in receiving employment signing bonuses.Milo: What kind of start-ups?Harrison: Businesses and start-ups see what graduates are coming from the Florida university system.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 18 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  19. 19. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 4:Cynthia Florentino and Frank Brogan: Thank you Cynthia for being our keyboarder. We stayed withTime because it’s a national publication. It’s prominent. “Higher Education, Florida gets it right.” We stolefrom the US Chamber of Commerce: “New epicenter of the knowledge-based economy.” Florida: Magnet fortalent – best students, faculty, industry flock to Florida. This is not about any one constituency.Collaboration: How Florida transformed its governance. In Florida, it was collaboration – every governancestructure, if it isn’t based on collaboration, it doesn’t work. The price is right – tuition affordability –predictability and value of degree. How does that degree translate?Cynthia: Stability is the most important. I think I speak on behalf of all the students on that aspect.Milo: There’s a great perspective for now, near future and long-term.Frank: Predictability in other funding revenues besides tuition. The State has to jive with tuition predictions.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 19 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  20. 20. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 5:Andrew Green and John Ramil: We asked ourselves what the model is for the nation: effective, efficientand innovative. Graduates should add value to the State by drawing in new resources. We should continueto offer affordable education while achieving national prominence. We must continue to draw top-notchresearch and teaching faculty.Milo: What were you thinking in terms of national prominence?Andrew: As the only student in the group, I felt it was important to remain affordable.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 20 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  21. 21. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 6:Billy Walsh and (?): We changed it to Forbes. We thought big on a global scale, Florida’s prominence on aninternational level. We wanted to make sure we could back up what we could say through quotes fromprominent people. Florida has the highest value education. Quotes from Bono and Tebow. Florida researchis in the top five states for high tech development. Florida leads nation in ROI. Tuition recognized as bestvalue. Growth from 220% to over 400% in ROI on education.Milo: And, Bill is using an iPad to illustrate that technology.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 21 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  22. 22. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 7:Marcus Motes and Elizabeth Caruth: We went crazy with the clip art (laughter). We spent 45 minutessolving all the problems in the State. Florida’s universities drive the State’s economic success. Legislature,governor, businesses and higher education are finally on a single page. Florida attracts the best andbrightest students and faculty. At the end of the day, that’s what we want to measure for accountability.Florida’s tuition rated best bang for the buck. It needs to be a good value.Milo: How did your team discuss that value?Marcus: At length. Is that job placement, retaining graduates in the state, getting more students in early,getting high-paying jobs?www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 22 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  23. 23. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 8:Ron Nyhan and Ed Shons: We didn’t really follow instructions. Florida Universities recognized as LeadingNation in Basic and Applied Research and Scholarship. If we really do our job, we’ll be a success for thiscountry. Our fundamental responsibilities are research and scholarship. Governance: Link systems for highereducation. College and university systems. It must be coordinated. Accountability: We’re looking for highereducation innovation – Florida results in annual wages in top 10 of nation innovation. It’s a way to measurevalue. Florida tuition recognized as the best value in the nation. Cheap is not good. We have to recognizethat the value is what we’re striving for, not just dollar amounts. Almost all of us have chosen a magazinewith a business orientation.Milo: Coordinated and differentiated system and a coordinated system?Ron: We didn’t want to suggest that every university has to look the same or not include all the needs. Itneeds to differentiate itself based on local needs. We have to be concerned about our local populations.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 23 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  24. 24. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 9:Ed Moore: We went with the business model, too. We grabbed onto ecosystem. We also looked at thegovernance on a broader issue. We looked at the economic impact of higher education. Increasedbusiness/higher education partnerships. CEO’s across Florida clamoring to be on these boards. To be fullyengaged in the role of higher education in Florida. New companies. New patents. New business start-ups inFlorida. Incubators. Linking with the universities. I’m from the private college sector. Flexible tuitionmodeling, access for all students. Students are paying the same for institutions with higher demand as theyare for institutions with lower demand – we should allow more flexibility to the universities.Milo: What would make higher education service more attractive to CEO’s?Ed: We hope the issues of governance would be gone. We hope business leaders would know the value ofserving.Speaker: In our graphic, we were hoping to have more diversity in gender and various disabilities.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 24 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  25. 25. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 10:Marshall Criser: We spent no time picking up a title or artwork. It’s hard to get the media to say somethingnice. There are multiple stakeholders in this process. We need to collaborate and coordinate with them.Students, business, economic and research development. Citizens bring that together. Focus onachievement – focus on output. What would that translate into? Florida tops nation in baccalaureates percapita. Matching students’ expectations to job opportunities. We do have a research and developmenteconomic engine in our state. We need to build on the collaborations that naturally occur today in spite ofthe fact that we don’t have a systemic incentive for that.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 25 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  26. 26. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Milo: We’ve had ten different news stories. There are a lot more connections and possibilities here. Dale: In this process, one phase builds on the next. We want to build on our time. Marshall gave us an idea of stakeholders. There is increasing pressure on the higher education system to be the economic driver. Some ideas that came out were knowledge creation, knowledge transfer and economic development. We were light on the idea of “teaching.” Tech transfer and commercialization was mentioned. In the role of economic driver – innovation, economic driver and workforce development. With these three roles, let’s talk about value. Value was the main theme across the 10 teams. If we just pick four stakeholders, for example, lets ask:What is their view of value? Here are the four stakeholders: (1) Taxpayers/Citizens/Elected officials, (2) theinstitutions (and internal team members), (3) students and (4) the business community.How about taxpayers/citizens/elected officials?Reuben Stokes: I’m working toward an education. Where value comes in is what is myreturn on investment? What does a degree from Florida State do for me?Dale: So, the question is: Does your degree make you a higher wage earner?Speaker: For the taxpayer – I think about all my friends who have recently graduated and have moved toAtlanta and other states. As a member of the legislature, it’s making sure that there is a return on the dollarin Florida. Those dollars do end up in the state.Dale: Keep that money in the system, OK.Speaker: Value can be intrinsic and explicit. Education expands the capabilities and knowledge that can helpour community thrive and become better citizens.Dale: So a better societal return.Speaker: Inclusivity, so we understand other cultures.Dale: How about institutions?Speaker: Values of the credentials of the faculty. How that positions the students in their attempt to getjobs.Speaker: This is a competitive marketplace. If our system doesn’t have a high value, people make differentchoices. It’s a continually increasing competitive field.Dale: So we need to be able to compete internationally.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 26 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  27. 27. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Speaker: From a taxpayer perspective – we haven’t measured what the value is for that degree. As wedevelop and define those, we can help the taxpayers and elected officials understand the outcomes better.We have to get beyond the buzz words. Better define higher education to the taxpayer. It might mean nothaving to pay more taxes individually because the state can rely on those with a higher education to bringvalue to the state in other ways.Dale: There is frustration to try to do that. The ball moves. The expectations are difficult to define.Speaker: How do we show the stakeholders our value? We go to all 67 counties and ask our citizens todefine the value – what is it that you need from our university? A lot of universities do that. Then we do ouraccountability based on how well those needs are being met.Dale: How much of this a communication issue? Aren’t we doing this much of this already – maybe we needto get that word out? To each other. To the other stakeholders.Speaker: Efficient, effective and affordable. We haven’t decided where we want to be as astate. We can feel good in our silos. But, if the state is falling behind because we haven’tdefined where we need to be, then I would submit that the value disappears. We need todecide where we need to be as a whole. The whole is not greater than the sum of its partsand I think that’s the thing. Susan Dyess: Respectfully being responsive to the community, but I see the university being the knowledge creator. The contributions of knowledge creation. The thought leader approach. Depends on the university academic environment. Speaker: I think we have the ability to pull together these thoughts, but I don’t think we have the strength to talk against the prevailing eliticism. I think we need to talk about it to all the people, not just a narrow group of stakeholders.Speaker: Cost and quality are the value. Cost to the students and taxpayers. Then we need to come up withthe metrics to measure quality. It may be a job to a student; it may be how many we get through to thelegislature. I think it’s the interplay of those.Speaker: I think we’re looking at the present and the future, too. We don’t know the value of what wehaven’t invented yet. We have the knowledge to bring together. We can’t predict what jobs are changing,www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 27 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  28. 28. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012going away or coming. The research that is going on now is not predictable. We have to look at what wehave now as well as what’s coming up in the future.Dale: The more you can decrease uncertainty, the better off you are. We try to measure things to makethem more certain and predictable. Are we measuring the right things the right way? Take faculty evaluation,for example. Is it more valuable to have a student look back five years later and evaluate how well a facultymember prepared him/her for the future? Is that where the ROI is evident for the student?Speaker: When we talk about investment – we want both short-term and long-term. Inresearch, we have to invest not knowing what the future will be. We have tosimultaneously think about the enduring value of arts.Dale: There’s uncertainty everywhere!Before we move on, I want to personally thank the Collaborative Labs of St. Petersburg College who pitchedin – this was pro bono – and thank USF-St. Petersburg and the Collaborative Labs for feeding us today.Andrea: We will have 45 minutes for lunch. We’ll reconvene at 12:15.

  30. 30. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Milo: Welcome back, everybody. Here’s a milestone marker as to where we started out this morning and where we are now. We started with some boards this morning highlighting the State’s strengths in the areas of governance, accountability and tuition. Then we had a number of nuggets of how to define those. As Dale said this morning, we’re gathering your input and your definitions. In this afternoon’s activity, you’ll have an opportunity to get a lot more granular around those definitions.Andrea: How many of you have put a puzzle together? What is the most important tool?The picture! What you did this morning was to put the picture together. Jonathan isputting the golden nuggets of your ten success stories together. Now, we’re going to putthe puzzle pieces together for the remainder of the afternoon. You’re third and finalmission is on your table. We’re looking for your recommendations for getting us to yourvision of 2013 and beyond. There will be three rounds: governance, accountability andtuition. You will have three different teams. We will again ask you to elect a keyboardingexpert. You’ll begin by working in our groupware. Under governance, you’ll brainstormstrategic recommendations. You’ll not only see your own input, put you’ll see all the other teams’ ideas aswell. After about 20 minutes, you’ll have, let’s say, 50 recommendations. We’ll prompt you to pick one. Youcan pick any recommendation, not just your team’s. You’ll drag your #1 recommendation into the “BestBucket.” Then, we’ll ask you to go to the Best Bucket and type in your team number next to the one youselected. Next to your chosen recommendation, we’ll ask you to add your justifications and impacts. This iswhere the metrics come in. Then, we’ll gather in the Tropics. We’ll hear your recommendations for eachround and then you’ll take a polling device to vote on the top three.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 30 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  31. 31. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Nothing gets lost. We’ll have all the brainstorming recommendations in the Real-Time Record. We’ll use thesame process for Accountability and Tuition.

  32. 32. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Activity 3: “Elevating our Top 3-Year Recommendations for the Task Force”Instructions: Join your assigned team (see the opposite side of this page). Appoint a “keyboarder” who will capture the team’s ideas using our collaborative groupware on the lap top computer. Your task as a team is to brainstorm 3-Year Recommendations that will support the “2017 Florida University System Success as the Nation’s Model” in each of the following Strategic Focus Areas (as they appear on the electronic whiteboard):Round 1 1. GovernanceRound 2 2. AccountabilityRound 3 3. TuitionWe will prompt your team to reach consensus and “drag and drop” your #1 Three Year Recommendation into the“Best” Folder. Note: You may choose another team’s recommendation if your team thinks it is best (and gets to it first!).After your team has dragged and dropped your #1 Recommendation, click on the “Best Bucket” and add your teamnumber next to the recommendation you chose. Next, add justifications/ impacts in the column next to your team’s#1 Recommendation.After 30-minutes, and between each round, we will reconvene as a full group in the Tropics Lab, where we will hear from eachteam’s spokesperson regarding their #1 Recommendation. We may take a poll to further prioritize the TopRecommendations for each of the Three Strategic Areas.There will be three different team mixes…one for each round, to ensure good energy and idea flow.After Round 3, we will reconvene as a full group in the Boardroom for final highlights and next steps.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 32 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu

  40. 40. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 42. alignment of goals, values and plans between the governing bodiesBest GovernanceTeam 1: Require Coordination Amongst All FL Educational Systems 1. Every System Pulls from the Same K-12 System 2. Improved Communications=Improved Results 3. Better Coordination=Better Efficiency 4. Improved Cost/Benefit Analysis, Much More Cost Effective 5. Builds on and Sustains Individual Institutional Strengths and Diversity 6. Promotes Efficient Use of Tech 7. Prepare All K-12 Students Early On of Educational and Workforce Options 8. Promote a Coordinated Approach to Globalization of the Curriculum 9. Use Standard National Metrics for Easy Comparison 10. Better Interaction with Legislature in Regards to Funding in FL 11. Promote Lifelong Learning and Career Decisions 12. Stronger Case that FL is a place to build corporations.Team #2: board of governors with linear communication throughout theuniversity system. 1. The board of governors are able to make better decisions when problem solving. 2. To enhance coordination among institutions to better meet state needs.Team 3 Collaborative/coordinated system among all stakeholders thatrequires interaction and involvement by all 1. Satisfy funding needs to achieve agreed upon goalsTeam 4: Clarify authority and respective roles of the BoG/BoTs/Legislative and Executive Branch throughalignment of goals, values, and plans of the governing bodies 1. Maximizing productivity and efficiency of each participant. 2. Reduces redundancy. 3. transparent lines of communication. 4. interfaces well with accountability 5. encourages collaborationTeam 5: Develop a collaborative strategic plan for higher education that isimplemented through goal-oriented collaboration amongst all the higher eddelivery systems and stakeholders. 1. Consensus over shared goals is critical. 2. Without an agreed upon plan any port in the storm. 3. Collaboration ensures best utilization of resources.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 40 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  41. 41. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 6: Designating specific roles of players in higher education structure (BOG, BOT, SUS, FCS, andPrivate) 1. Justification: Knowing who is responsible provides clearer lines of accountability within Higher Education and allows for greater Collaboration, Coordination, and Communication. 2. Impact: A Super-Board (representatives from the various existing Higher Education Boards and Stakeholders) that provides Collaboration, Coordination, and Communication between all the stakeholders (including PK-12) for Higher Education.Team 7: Higher education governance requires explicit goal-oriented collaboration between theBoG/BoT/Leg/Ex Branch/Board of Ed. 1. Culture follows form. 2. Clarity of Governance provides for clarity of plan and execution. 3. Longer term improvement requires synchronization of systems. 4. EfficiencyTeam 8: Create long-term stable State-wide plan for Higher Education including SUS, SCS, and Privateeducation providers 1. Provides clarity for long term efficiencies 2. Avoids Unnecessary Duplication of Programs 3. Focuses vision 4. Stabilizes Predictability of PlanningTeam 9: Flexibility with accountability and meaningful metrics (state legislature sets constants; BOG , BOE,and BOTs set variables). Issuance of performance contracts to ensure thatmeasurable results are achieved. 1. To ensure that goals do not change without warning; meaningful goals should not change 2. There are universal goals and measurements that should be applied 3. Shifting of funding from inputs to outputs 4. Rewarding students who meet requirements/excelTeam 10: Stability in strategic planning, lump sum funding to BOG and devolve to BOTs, and cleardelineation of roles and responsibilities of Legislature, BOG and BOTs. 1. Shared collaborative consensus building and long term planning is essential and will lead to buy-in by all stakeholders and acceptance by policy makers. This relies on predictable investment or appropriate modifications to the plan. 2. Lump sum funding is the only mechanism by which the BOG and BOTs will have the authority and ability to implement the strategic plan. 3. We recognize that we are still in a transitional phase of stabilizing the relationship between the Governor, Legislature, BOG and the local BOTs.Andrea: We’re going to ask each team’s spokesperson to introduce yourself and to share your team’sjustifications and impacts.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 41 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  42. 42. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Report Outs:Team 1:Harrison Sherwin: We talked about better coordination of all Florida education systemsfrom kindergarten on. Helping students stay informed and help the infrastructure to stay moreinformed. Being able to have the programs overlap so moving between schools is smoother.You have better, efficient use of the infrastructure. Requesting money from the legislature ismore effective if it affects the entire system. John Moyle: What if the coordination was “required” rather than “better”? This change was made to item #1.Team 2:Blair Sapp: Board of Governors with linear communication throughout the universitysystem. We have to clearly define which roles go with which entity. The BOG is not stompingon other people’s terrain. Team 3: Les Croland: We spent a lot of time – we had agreement on the intent. All of the stakeholders should be required to interact and agree: the taxpayers, institutions, governor, legislature, businesses and venture capitalists. If we agreed, there would be better funding for the institutions. To attract and retain the best and the brightest. Working it out among the stakeholders seems to be a common theme.Speaker: Would this be mandatory?Les: Yes. Satisfy the funding needs based on the agreement of the stakeholders.Speaker: You didn’t mention students as one of the stakeholders. Where did that come in?Les: I think we broke that down in the institutions. Team 4: Don O’Shea: Legislative and executive branch have alignment of goals, values and plans of governing bodies. We thought about them doing their roles relatively quickly. We talked about efficiency and productivity. Allow them to contribute in ways that they can best contribute. We’re hoping for transparent lines of communication and there needs to be trust. That would interface well with accountability. We wanted to encourage collaboration.Speaker: Were you focused only on the SUS system?Don: We asked ourselves that question and we didn’t quite settle it. Higher education orSUS system? We are worried that, by using the broader term, it would dilute focus.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 42 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  43. 43. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Team 5: Pam Tedesco: Are we making recommendations for the entire education system? The SUS? We talked about requiring collaboration for a defined set of outcomes. A strategic plan across the higher education system. The justification for that is having shared goals. If we don’t know where we’re going, anywhere is good. Collaboration would give us the best results.Team 6:Kim McDougall: I’m going to let Frank own this recommendation. It doesn’t really saywhat we meant. What is governance? Designate specific roles. Justification – knowingwho’s responsible. We were thinking a little bit broader. What five responsibilities couldyou give a super board? Who are you going to coordinate with and what’s going tohappen with that coordination? Team 7: Marcus Motes: This looks similar to what everybody else said. We stole it from somebody else. Explicit goal-oriented collaboration between BoG, BoT, legislature and executive branch. Everybody has their own little kingdom and they are scared that they’re going to lose out. There are a lot of unknowns at the top with the legislature. They are just trying to survive. Synchronization of systems. Make Florida a better place together.Speaker: Would you object to adding DOE? That has the colleges.Team 7 agreed to add the Department of Education.Speaker: Efficiency was one of the justifications. It really needs to be there.Marcus: Bob gave an example of Scripps working together with South Florida. That is a good example ofcollaboration. We should be doing more of that.Speaker: I think you mean the Board of Education. It’s the bond for pre-K, community colleges anduniversities. Team 8: TJ Villamil: Statewide plan for higher education including all parties involved. Provides clarity, avoids unnecessary duplication, focuses on the vision and stabilizes predictability. Speaker: Stability at what level – with the pressures on the legislature,things have changed. We wanted to make sure that we weren’t necessarily focused on beingstable with the current level. Team 9: Janice Gilley: Flexibility with accountability with having measurable goals. Having results rewarded or penalized. Performance contracts and how to measure them comes down a little bit farther. Shifting of funding from inputs to outputs. Rewarding students who meet requirements, who excel. The state legislature sets the constants. We don’t want to be comfortable with where we are now. But with graduation or employment rates, there haveto be universal truths. The BoG and BoT set the variabilities for the universities.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 43 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  44. 44. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012 Team 10: Manoj Chopra: Stability and strategic planning. Lump sum funding. Clear delineation of roles. Long-term planning is essential. Have predictable investment or a change in the plan. Lump sum funding – in order for us to have the authority to implement the plan, we need the lump sum funding. We are still in a transitional phase of stabilizing the relationship between the governor, legislature and others.Andrea: We like to merge like items. Which items actually fit together?Milo: We can go through these items to see if there is overlap. Milo read each item.Speaker: The thrust of what we’re after is clear to me. It can be worked on and cleaned up for presentationto the task force.Milo: This is input that is all being saved. The Task Force will see everything.Andrea: Let’s vote on all ten of these items.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 44 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  45. 45. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Milo: There is more energy around a collaborative strategic plan. A close second is around item 6 which isabout stability in strategic planning, lump sum funding to BoG, BoT and clear delineation of roles andresponsibilities.Round 2: AccountabilityBrainstorm Accountability 3-Year Recommendations 1. Establish clear performance expectations and create a system of rewards, positive or negative, to accompany accountability 2. Tying metrics in with marketplace conditions 3. Ensure that metrics fit the programs, not only the institutions 4. Reverse accountability; public universities utilizing the resources that is has, as opposed to the creation of additional public universities 5. Create metrics and appropriate dashboards at each level that instill confidence 6. Recognize increased significant performance expectations are impossible without an increase funding 7. Accountability should implemented throughout the process, and be used to guide and amend the process. 8. Annual performance metrics should be aligned with long term goals and be adjusted based on stakeholder interests. 9. 10. Streamline the data-reporting process; outline the goals of said data and follow up with outcomes. 11. Strategic plan should define outcomes 12. Balance between short-term and long-term accountability measures 13. Focus on key metrics instead of many different metrics. 14. Metrics should capture reality and not distort it. They should allow for differences in inputs. 15. Accountability process needs to be accountable. 16. You should be rewarded for meeting or exceeding goals 17. Outcome accountability system has to be sensitive to local boundary conditions. 18. Go Gators! 19. Division and role clarification amongst stakeholders in Higher Education. 20. Choose useful metrics for performing in areas of education, research, and service. 21. Seek complex ways to measure long-term value that include the intangibles.Best Accountability:Team 1: Create/establish metric measures recognizing each institutions specificmission. Footnote: team 2 collaboratively borrowed our first idea. 1. Institutions need to serve their students, their region, and the greater good. 2. Local unique characteristics define and shape institutions values. 3. Local metrics are more likely to be based on reality.www.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 45 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
  46. 46. Florida Blue Ribbon Task Force July 26, 2012Team 2: Accountability measures should clearly align with the institutions mission. Institutional missionsshould align with broader statewide missions. 1. Institutions already address measurable elements of accreditation criteria which reflect the institutions mission 2. Diversity within the system without contradiction between those diverse missions and the broader statewide mission for higher education Team 3: Clarify among stakeholders the goals for Higher Education. 1. Allows all stakeholders to be on a single page regarding the future of Higher Education. 2. Allows for the establishment of long-term, constant, and consistent metrics.Team #4: Establishing metrics that are obtainable and appropriate for each institution or program; focusshould be on outcomes as measurement of success or failure. 1. Justification: enhances the marketability and value of degree, and the collegiate experience. 2. Create a better allocation of resources at institutional level. 3. Impact: Allows institutional distinctiveness and responsiveness to that institutions stakeholders; flexibility is necessary to be responsible to stakeholdersTeam 5: Embrace clarified differential missions, goals, expectations and differential funding both among andwithin Floridas institutions of Higher Education 1. Have accountability measures and standards clearly align with mission, goals and expectations 2. Optimize Return on Investment 3. Recognize Floridas institutions are fully vested in a culture of accountability 4. Clarify difference between Knowledge Transfer and Knowledge Creation institutions 5. Enhance Floridas competitive position by institutional typeTeam 6: Becoming mission oriented. Focus on performance and achievingmeasurable results. Create a mechanism for determining metrics based on datathat is streamlined. Look to long-term trends and not unpredictablefluctuations. Be responsive to stake-holders. Create incentives anddisincentives to drive success. 1. A mission focus curbs unnecessary duplication, and takes advantage of the experience of individual institutions. 2. Provides clarity on expectations which enhances resource utilization. 3. Ensures predictability and validity of accountability while optimizing resources.Team 7: Define agreed upon factors for specific categories (specific enough to aggregate, broad enough tomeet the needs of the mission of individual universities) 1. Streamline data-reporting 2. Hold the accountability process accountable 3. Seek complex ways to measure long-term value that includes the intangibles 4. Evaluate accountability in terms of institutional strategic work plans to ensure sensitivity to local boundary conditionswww.collaborativelabs.com (727) 341-3139 46 CollaborativeLabs@spcollege.edu
