Faculty and staff have different roles in the university, but both are essential to achieving the mission of the university. Decisions on hiring faculty and staff are arguably the most strategic made by an institution. Examine faculty and staff roles and needs in undergraduate education, graduate education, research and creative activity and service to community and state in the context of the overarching goal of becoming an emerging research university with an unparalleled commitment to student success, closing gaps in achievement and delivering a robust campus experience. Through that examination, propose university-wide goals as well as the actions needed to achieve those goals. Attention should also be paid to promoting efficiency and effectiveness. Include time frames for expected attainment of goals and actions, proposed assessment and targets for goals, and estimates of human, physical and financial resources required.
