UNC Faculty Assembly Resolution: 2010-4
Resolution Regarding the Definition and Protection of the Academic Core
Passed unanimously 4-16-2010
The quality of a university is directly related to the strength of its academic program; and
It is important to protect the quality of the University’s academic program by effective budgetary decisions and strategic planning, and such protection is particularly important during times of economic stress; and
There is no simple set of metrics that provide a measure of the strength of academic programs, but rather a complex set measures that pertain to investments in both physical and human infrastructure which provide insight into the Academic Core of the university;
The 2009-2010 session of the Faculty Assembly of the University of North Carolina charged a working group to develop defining principles and characteristics of the Academic Core, to collect data from all campuses of the University of North Carolina system, and to evaluate the system’s investments in, and protection of, the Academic Core;
Therefore be it resolved:
That the Faculty Assembly of the University of North Carolina endorse the white paper report “Protecting the Academic Core” of the Academic Core sub-committee which provides an effective definition of the Academic Core, and
Be it further resolved:
That the Faculty Assembly commit to continuing to work with the University of North Carolina General Administration, to develop and obtain reliable data sets that are consistent between campuses and the general administration, with clear definitions of data parameters such that they can be effectively utilized for evaluating past and projecting future investments in the Academic Core.
