Tri-Campus Task Force to hold public discussions at three campuses

by Elizabeth Omara-Otunnu - November 6, 2006

Members of a task force considering the status and future of the Tri-Campus will hold public discussions with faculty, staff, and students at the three constituent regional campuses this week.

The forums will take place at the Torrington campus in the High-Tech Classroom, and the Greater Hartford campus in the Zachs Community Room on Tuesday, Nov. 7; and at the Waterbury campus in the Multipurpose Room on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

At each location, a student forum will be held from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m., followed by a forum for faculty and staff from 1:15 to 2 p.m. A light lunch will be served.

These forums are designed to answer questions about the Tri-Campus Task Force and its charge, as well as to receive feedback.

The task force was established by Veronica Makowsky, vice-provost for academic affairs and regional campus administration. Its charge is to:

  • examine the structure of the Tri-Campus and identify strengths and weaknesses through considering areas such as, but not limited to, administrative efficiency, allocation and/or sharing of resources, budgeting, degree programs, sharing of faculty and/or courses, relationship to constituents external to UConn, relationships to other regional campuses and to Storrs; and
  • make a recommendation or alternative recommendations to the vice provost for undergraduate education and regional campus administration. These recommendations may range from maintaining the present structure intact to making significant changes in the present structure.

The Task Force also hopes to hear from those who are unable to attend. Please send comments and observations on the Tri-Campus to Pam Bramble, chair of the task force, at pamela.bramble@uconn.edu, by Nov. 10.

A Tri-Campus survey is also being distributed via e-mail to Tri-Campus faculty, staff, and students. This online survey is another venue for those who teach, work, or study at the three campuses to communicate their observations on and experiences of Tri-Campus.

Please take a few minutes and complete this important survey.

Tri-Campus Task Force members are:

Tracie Borden
Pam Bramble (chair)
Nadine Brennan
Angela Brightly
Katherine Brophy
Roger Chaffin
Robert Fisher
Dana Forchette
Tessie Naranjo
Glen Richardson
Mark Robbins
