Update on Several Important Topics

In an effort to keep you informed on the status of important issues of interest to the university community, I would like to bring to your attention the availability of current status memoranda and associated documents on the following:


Proposed Restructuring of New Jersey's Public Research Universities - A detailed status memo and copies of seven committee reports are available on the NJIT website. Feedback from the NJIT community is encouraged and requested by Wednesday, November 12. Please visit the Chronology and Commentary on Restructuring site on the Presidential News section of NJIT's web sit


New Jersey Commission on Higher Education Long Range Plan - A draft plan is available for review and comment under the Planning link of NJIT's web site. Please submit comments by Friday, November 7.


Strategic Plan for Alumni Relations - A status memo on strategic planning for our Alumni Relations program and a copy of the Strategic Plan for Alumni Relations is available under the Planning link of NJIT's web-site. 


Consultant Report and New Administrative Structure for Human Resources at NJIT - The report of our external consultant, a discussion of his recommendation and steps toward a new administrative structure for Human Resources and related functions is available under the Announcements section of the Presidential News link of NJIT's web-site.


There is a large amount of information available on these topics. I would encourage you to browse reports on-line first and then determine if you need to print any of them. For the first two topics we are soliciting further comments and feedback from the NJIT community, and I encourage you to do so by the dates indicated. Instructions for comments and feedback are at the respective sites.


Thanks for your continued interest in these topics.
