As a Faculty Member in COAS, we were mandated by Academic Affairs and our Dean to put together an extensive extra budget proposal for our Department because of the anticipated Performance Metric Money of up to 12 million dollars. We are now told by our Chair and Dean that UNF will receive NO money because UNF finished last in these metrics.
Why did Academic Affairs mandate this budget exercise BEFORE we knew we were getting any money? This is terrible for faculty morale.
Response from the Floor by Provost Chally
We thought we were going to receive money. The process was based on the need for Academic Affairs to be prepared for this anticipated money. In the future, we will be more careful in calling for these activities.
