Budget & Academic Planning Committee

The charge of the Budget and Academic Planning Committee (BAPC) is to make recommendations to the Dean concerning the allocation of the stateside fiscal budget of CEHHS.  Allocation of CEHHS stateside funds for faculty development will also be subject to recommendation by the BAPC, but recommendations regarding the disbursement of those funds will be handled by the Faculty Development and Policy Committee (FDPC).

BAPC will also make recommendations to the Dean concerning long-range academic and resource planning of CEHHS.  Through annual reviews and revisions of the College Academic Master Plan (CAMP) and three-year rolling plans, the BAPC will make specific recommendations regarding the implementation of new academic programs from stateside and EL.  In view of that plan, as well as a survey of CEHHS needs, the BAPC will also make annual recommendations regarding the hiring of stateside and EL faculty and departmental/school support staff, and advise the Dean on broader questions of long-range CEHHS development.

  1. The voting members of the BAPC shall be six faculty: two members representing each of the three units of CEHHS (SOE, SON and SHSHS), who are elected by the faculty within their respective divisions; and a seventh member elected at large from among the eligible CEHHS faculty.
  2. Ex officio, non-voting members shall include a member of the CEHHS staff elected by the staff, the Director of Student Services, and the Dean or his/her designee.
  3. Committee members shall serve staggered terms of two years.
  4. Each Fall, the BAPC shall review, revise, and solicit recommendations from the CEHHS community regarding changes/additions to the CAMP, and shall submit the CAMP for University review according to published deadlines.  The BAPC shall communicate with other CEHHS standing committees as necessary regarding the CAMP and its implementation.  Consistent with the planning presented in the CAMP, the BAPC will also make recommendations to the Dean regarding the CEHHS response to broader, Division or University level planning exercises and requirements.
  5. The BAPC shall provide the Dean with timely recommendations regarding hiring priorities of stateside faculty and department/school support staff, balancing the needs of existing Schools/Departments and planned future degree programs.  Each fall the BAPC shall conduct a survey of School/Department stateside needs, including a call for hiring proposals for faculty and staff.  Tenure-track faculty hiring proposals will apply to hires for which searches will be conducted in the following academic year; staff hiring proposals will apply to whatever timeline is established for that cycle of recruitment.
  6. The BAPC shall review the stateside faculty hiring proposals in the context of any changes made to the CAMP (even as it updates the CAMP), and shall present the Dean a prioritized list of recommended stateside searches, early in the spring semester.  The Dean shall respond in a timely manner, by the end of the academic year, with the final list of searches to be submitted to the Provost for approval.  The BAPC shall review staff hiring proposals in the context of the School/Department and CEHHS needs, and shall present the Dean a prioritized list of recommended searches, early in the spring semester.  The Dean shall respond in a timely manner and meet with the committee to negotiate the final list of searches that will be authorized.  BAPC shall consult with other standing committees as needed, in order to complete its tasks as charged.
  7. On an ad hoc basis, at the request of the Dean or at its own behest, the BAPC may provide advice to the Dean’s Office on any matter of long-term CEHHS planning, development, and/or resource allocation, working in consultation with other standing CEHHS committees, as necessary and advisable.
  8. BAPC shall communicate CAMP decisions within one week of approval to CAPC.
