Academic Unit Planning and Management. Technical Report No. 75.
Miyataki, Glenn K.; Byers, Maureen L.
Intended to provide a systematic aid for planning and managing academic units (schools, colleges, departments, or divisions) within an institution, the Academic Unit Planning and Management (AUPM) manual consists of a multifaceted set of techniques and procedures that can be used by academic unit administrators. Data regarding academic unit functions, the availability and allocation of human and physical resources, sources and uses of funds, and the planning and assessment of outcomes can be determined. Six modules, containing data worksheets and investigation procedures, include: (1) Identifying and Organizing Academic Unit Functions; (2) Examining Academic Demand; (3) Planning Faculty Resources; (4) Planning Physical Resources; (5) Planning Financial Resources; and (6) Identifying and Assessing Outcomes. An overview of AUPM objectives is presented, and five guidelines for its implementation are outlined. Five appendixes take up approximately half of the document and include: a discussion of how an academic unit functions; a list of contributions of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems products to the academic unit planning manual; blank worksheets; instructions for completing sample faculty planning forms; and an inventory of higher education outcome variables and measures.
