Endowed Chairs and Faculty Positions College of Agriculture Department: Animal & Veterinary Science Goal: Construct a modern, centralized animal unit to house all of the production (farm) animals on campus Detailed Needs Assessment: The Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is in desperate need of an updated, centralized farm unit to replace our antiquated and decaying facilities that are currently housing our animals for instructional and research activities. A centralized modern facility would make better use of land, personnel and physical resources. It would also offer the opportunity for faculty to be more competitive in pursuit of animal related research grants. As the only Animal Science Department in Southern California and one of the largest in the nation, our current facilities are an embarrassment to the University and our Department, even as Cal Poly was founded based on agriculture and animal usage. Goal: Construct a veterinary teaching facility and functional low-income veterinary center at AGRIscapes Detailed Needs Assessment: The Animal Health Sciences Program is the largest four-year veterinary technology program in the country and the only one that does not have a dedicated teaching facility. The Department desires to construct a modern small companion animal teaching hospital. The hospital would serve as both an operating veterinary facility and a teaching hospital. The facility would serve as a teaching center for our over 900 Pre-Vet and Veterinary Technology students. It would also provide low-cost veterinary services for the students, faculty and staff at Cal Poly Pomona. The revenues generated from the facility would not only support the facility but would provide other funds to the department for teaching supplies, research and faculty development. Goal: To purchase biotechnology equipment that would allow our faculty and graduate students conduct modern research Detailed Needs Assessment: The Department’s research facilities and equipment are outdated and do not allow our faculty to be competitive in terms of grants with tier one institutions or even with other state colleges for that matter. The Department’s research equipment is more out of date and incomplete than any other Animal Science Department in the state and quite possibly the nation. We have very scholarly and ambitious faculty with no way to conduct the research they are capable of due to the lack of modern biotechnology equipment. Equipment is needed to conduct research in the areas of genomics, microbiology, biotechnology, equine physiology and microbiology. Department: Apparel Merchandising & Management Goal: Remodel Building 45 Detailed Needs Assessment: We are seeking to modernize and convert parts of building 45 to support our enrollment growth. A number of rooms need to be retrofitted to modernize them and turn them into flexible teaching space. Requirements include retrofitting room 102 into a multipurpose 4-way classroom/ auditorium space; modernizing room 201 as a study/ library facility; converting storage space in the mezzanine into a student lounge; creating a classroom space adjacent to the production lab in 153; creating a larger computer lab space in 125. Goal: Upgrade Laboratory Equipment and Software Detailed Needs Assessment: AMM is a technology intensive subject. The department’s labs are all aging and need to have their equipment and software systems updated and expanded to keep up with technological developments and to maintain the accreditation of the program by the American Apparel & Footwear Association. Specific needs include new sewing and cutting machinery in the Production Lab; an expanded range and more modern equipment in the Testing Lab; an expanded range and upgraded software in the Computer Labs; and RFID equipment and enterprise management software in the retail laboratory. Goal: Obtain an Endowment for a Distinguished Professorship in Apparel/Fashion Retail Management Detailed Needs Assessment: Due to the rapid development of the AMM program and its goal to become a leading national and international center for apparel education and research, we are seeking a recognized national/ international leader in the fashion retail field to provide leadership of our Fashion Retail program, perhaps ultimately to serve as department chair. Department: Food Marketing & Agribusiness Mgmnt/Agricultural Education Goal: Endowed Chair-Agriculture Science Education Detailed Needs Assessment: a. Increase ability for TTF to enhance/expand scholarship and prominence in three key areas of the Agricultural Science Program- 1) undergraduate service and field research, 2) graduate faculty scholarship and research related to Food Chain System Understanding, and 3) preparation of future agricultural educators b. Advance broad agricultural literacy efforts and programming through extension, research, and service related activities Goal: Undergraduate Scholarships Detailed Needs Assessment: a. University scholarships for attracting top agricultural science students available in the state b. Attract highly recognized leaders from California agricultural youth organizations found on secondary and community college campuses Goal: Graduate Scholarships Detailed Needs Assessment: a. Enable program to be on par with other CSU universities in competing for and attracting top teacher prospects by offering competitive student teaching scholarships b. Enable program to attract top graduate students and graduate student scholarship through competitive Agricultural Education Research Mini-Grants c. Enable program to develop and shape curriculum needed and requested by feeder programs Goal: Travel funding to be used as Competitive Travel Awards to undergraduate and graduate students requesting support for attending and presenting professional conferences and presentations Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Funding or equipment to enhance the Agriculture Science Model Instructional Classroom (room 214) Detailed Needs Assessment: a. Smart Board or similar interactive technology b. Distance Learning hardware, software (see “Polycom” below) c. Wall storage (similar to room 201) Goal: Polycom V500 Video Conference (NTSC) IP-Only Remote System Detailed Needs Assessment: a. 6 @ $1,680.35 ea b. Host remote field trips or offer courses via satellite schools found in distant Southern California locations Goal: Laptops, with video cam capabilities Detailed Needs Assessment: a. Restricted use for agriculture student teachers and agriculture field day Goal: Toshiba TLP X3000U – LCD projector (3000 ansi lumens minimum) Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Ford E-150 Club Wagon Passenger Van Detailed Needs Assessment: a. Teaching visits, recruitment, tours, recruitment activities, tutoring, education field days Department: Human Nutrition & Food Science Program: Foods & Nutrition Goal: Upgrade inadequate facility for food preparation Detailed Needs Assessment: Over 200 students are in the dietetic degree program. The Cal Poly Pomona dietetic program is nationally accredited and is the or among the top single source(s) of Registered Dietitians in the State of California. Accreditation standing depends on providing students with key knowledge and demonstrated skills. Knowledge of and skill in food preparation is important for effective patient teaching to follow evidence based practices to treat and prevent chronic disease and certain acute disease states. The current faculties are antiquated and many ovens are not in proper working order. The requested funds are needed to purchase convection/downdraft stoves/ovens to replace inoperable and inadequate home style ranges and ovens. Downdraft ovens are necessary given the infrastructure limitations of Building 7-113 and 7-117. Goal: Endowed Chair in Community Nutrition Detailed Needs Assessment: HNFS has had an outstanding track record in research and community service in poor areas of the Pomona community. Recent projects included the Washington Park Senior Citizens Center, Pomona Day Laborers Camp and the Pomona Valley of Churches Beta Food Bank. These outreach activities represent not only service and outreach, but also opportunities for significant research to develop better intervention strategies to enhance the health and well being of low economic groups. The Endowed Chair of Community Nutrition is needed to more effectively promote these activities on a continuing basis and to lead the development of a Community Nutrition Action program that would attract extramural from the USDA and National Institutes of Health. HNFS cannot make this leap to excellence without a faculty member focused on community nutrition research. Moreover, such a position would enhance the participation of undergraduates and graduate students and play a pivotal role in their education and professional development. Goal: Acquire software to effectively obtain nutrient intakes Detailed Needs Assessment: NDS-R software is used in nutrition research to obtain valid 24-hour recall data and this particular software has a very comprehensive and complete food list. This necessary equipment is needed for graduate students conducting community nutrition research and is relevant to the long term goal of HNFS to acquire a center for community nutrition. See the request for Endowed Faculty chair in community nutrition. Program: Food Science & Technology (FST) Goal: Establish a food processing facility Detailed Needs Assessment: The Cal Poly Pomona FST program is one of the youngest in the country and has rapidly grown to about 60 students equal to the average undergraduate enrollment in food science departments nationwide. The Cal Poly FST program needs a food pilot plant to become eligible for approval by the Institutes of Food Technologists. Cal Poly Pomona FST students have competed well nationally finishing 3rd in a national food product development competition and finishing among the top 6 nationally for Student Club of the Year. Processing equipment that is housed in a clean area with adequate infrastructure such as electrical, waste water, and steam is needed. The laboratory would take up a portion of the proposed AGRIscapes build out. Our goal is to have a glass wall showing the public the steps taken to produce a finished food product from the original plant materials. This facility would also be used to developed incubator projects with local food businesses. Athletics Goal: New Track & Field/Soccer Stadium Detailed Needs Assessment: Currently, neither the competition track nor soccer field meets conference or NCAA minimum requirements to host collegiate athletic events. The track & field team has no opportunity to have a home event and travel each weekend during the competitive season to compete. The track has six lanes (9 are required) and a full complement of field event areas is not available to conduct events. There is not a hammer or discus facility and the pole vault is outside the existing facility. Student-athletes currently train at the facility, but those in selected events must practice and train for her/his event(s) at off-campus venues. The soccer field that currently exists at Kellogg Stadium uses field dimensions that are not NCAA approved. Our intercollegiate competitions are held here despite the field. Bleachers currently exist, but are condemned on one side and thus, bleachers are rented annually (cost of $8,500-$9,000) during the duration of the season. The lights are not energy efficient and in need of repair. There are not locker rooms for home or visiting teams or rooms for officials that need to change. Currently Kellogg Gym is used for these functions. Goal: New Baseball Stadium (Scolinos Field) Detailed Needs Assessment: Currently the baseball field (without lights) does not meet minimum conference or NCAA requirements to host post-season competitions. This means that should our team be selected to participate or host conference or NCAA playoffs, we would have to decline the hosting opportunity. Our team always travels for post-season competition. The condition of the seating is in immediate need of repair. The home team dugout roof now has partially collapsed. A double-wide trailer (installed only last year) now serves as the baseball clubhouse, but does not have an operable restroom or showers. The current stadium does not have permanent restrooms or running water available to the general public. During the baseball season, portable toilets are contracted. There is not a usable toilet during the fall practice season, forcing student-athletes to use Kellogg Gym facilities. This is not ideal as practices/competitions are held on weekends when the building should be locked and not accessed by the general public. There are not locker rooms for home or visiting teams or rooms for officials that need to change. Currently Kellogg Gym is used for these functions. This facility is used by other campus departments and rented to community entities. Lights would allow for additional marketing/promotional opportunities. Goal: Renovation of Kellogg Gym Building & Ancillary Areas/New Multi-Purpose Arena Detailed Needs Assessment: At the present time, daily events/classes are hosted in the Kellogg Gym building. These include Kinesiology & Health Promotion activity classes, Intercollegiate Athletics practices and competitions, youth sport camps and clinics, the Hi-Tech career fair, Intramural volleyball and basketball, Cal Poly Pomona club and organization events (Greek life, pep band, cheer, etc…) and numerous outside rental events (usage now estimated over 300,000 annually). With the increase in resident housing and campus programming, the likelihood of additional use is apparent. The seating in the gym currently consists of old wooden bleachers. This are extremely outdated and in need of on-going repair. There is not any air conditioning in the gym. The current condition of the walls/ceiling is in dire need of painting and cleaning as dirt is highly noticeable and paint is now flaking off the walls. The current gym floor was not properly installed and contains “dead spots” throughout the playing surface. Office space for faculty/staff does not meet current CSU minimums. Offices that were designed for 1 person new regularly hold 2-4 persons. There is not a general locker room for females to change. They have to use the only public restroom as a changing area. During athletic competitions, the women’s visiting teams are placed in a general classroom for pre-game/halftime/post-game and use the public restroom. Showers are not available and only able to be accessed in Darlene May Gym. Official’s rooms do not exist. The men’s faculty/staff locker room serves as the official’s room. This is problematic during women’s competitions and female/male crews often serve together as mixed crews during the competition. Men’s games officials also use the room, thus have as many as six (of which three could be of different gender) at any given time and there exists only a small restroom and one small open shower area. Goal: New Scoreboards at Kellogg Field, Scolinos Field and in Kellogg Gym & Darlene May Gym Detailed Needs Assessment: Currently, the indoor and outdoor scoreboards are outdated. New scoreboards would incorporate message centers, graphic capabilities and signage panels that all would be used as corporate partner solicitation opportunities. New scoreboards would also enhance the general public experience and promote other public relations/special event opportunities for the University as a whole. Goal: Endowment of all Annual Student-Athlete Scholarships Detailed Needs Assessment: The NCAA establishes the maximum allowable number of student-athlete scholarships that may be awarded in each sport. In consultation with the Financial Aid office, the allowable equivalency is determined by the calculated “cost of attendance” per institution. Cal Poly Pomona currently sponsors 12 intercollegiate sports. These include (with the NCAA maximum allowable shown/what we currently offer per sport): Baseball (9.0/4.08), Women’s Basketball (10.0/6.84), Men’s Basketball (10.0/8.49), Women’s Soccer (9.9/3.34), Men’s Soccer (9.0/4.07), Volleyball (8/4.13), Women’s Cross Country & Track & Field – combined (12.6/2.97), Men’s Cross Country & Track & Field - combined (12.6/2.97), Women’s Tennis (6/1.63), and Men’s Tennis (3.6/.22). College of Business Goal: To foster and advance a “Learn-by-Doing” education for all students in the College of Business Administration. Detailed Needs Assessment: a.

Support to develop and coordinate internships and student project opportunities in the community. a. Program Coordinator and staff support b. Operational support c. Support for a facility to house the centers and an offices for community relations and internship/project coordination. This cannot be funded by the CSU and these facilities are not in our current new building plan. 2. To recruit and graduate academically excellent students a. Support for merit scholarships for entering and continuing students b. Support for recruitment publications and recruitment events 3. To recruit, develop, and retain excellent faculty in a highly competitive market. a. An endowed chair in each of the six departments b. Support for differentials between CSU salaries and the market salaries for new faculty in high-demand fields such as accounting and finance c. Support for start-up packages for new faculty, including research stipends d. Support for faculty to participate in activities that promote currency in their fields and develop new skills and knowledge. CLASS (College of Letters Arts and Social Sciences) Goal: 30 new student scholarships Detailed Needs Assessment: CLASS remains committed to access, diversity, fostering global leadership and producing integrative thinkers. Scholarships for incoming and current students will allow the college to expand its recruitment efforts and increase access for students to its many existing study abroad opportunities in Paris, Ghana, the Carribean, China, London and Germany; thereby contributing to their understanding of global leadership. Goal: Endowment for Community Engagement Detailed Needs Assessment: This program will afford CLASS the opportunity to continue funding its existing outreach programs at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center while further institutionalizing it. To this end, the endowment will support operating expenses for the DTS, youth programming like the Academy for Literacy through the Arts, Friendmobile, and Peer Theatre. Further to this end, the funding will expand the campuses efforts by supporting fellowships for CPP students at the DTC, and support for coordination of the Center's efforts within the Pomona Valley. Opportunities for more faculty engagement will expand programming and research within the community. Goal: Artist in Residence - Endowed Chair, Endowed Visiting Artist, Endowed Lecture Series Detailed Needs Assessment: Three-tiered approach to artist in residence – bringing artists to CPP to support student learning, by affording them the opportunity to meet, work with and learn from various artists in the fields of the performing arts. Artists would include individuals or groups, depending on the needs of student programming. This program is conceived with the idea of augmenting CLASS’s existing performing arts programs in Music, Theatre, and Dance affording these programs the opportunities. Goal: Endow Ahimsa Center Detailed Needs Assessment: The Ahimsa Center was created and continues to be expanded through external support. The center director, lectures, bi-annual conference, and it's teacher institute have continued to be supported by it's donors on an annual basis, to this end, it is necessary to establish an endowment. The endowment will afford the center to continue its programming in perpetuity, seeking funding annually, to augment its programming, but not to sustain in - as is the current situation. Goal: Media Studies Program – Endowed Chair/minor in film and media studies and society, Endowed program in film and media studies and society, Endowed lectureship in film and media studies and society Detailed Needs Assessment: Integrating the expertise in CLASS, Science, and Engineering, this program is designed to look at the various aspects of medial and film studies. These various aspects included biomechanics, film preservation, technology science and engineering. This program is also being developed with the concept of utilizing the expertise of current and retired faculty and staff as well as alumni, as well as specifically being used to attract new donors to the campus. Goal: GIS Institute for K-12 Teachers Detailed Needs Assessment: CLASS is committed to an interdisciplinary approach to teacher education. The College hosts many of the University's single subject credential programs and produces a large proportion of the institution's teachers. To this end, the college would like to continue building opportunities for teachers, through the development of an interdisciplinary program that utilizes the expertise of faculty, the college's resources and the university-wide GIS initiative by offering an institute for K-12 teachers in GIS. Curriculum will be developed which will afford K-12 teachers the opportunity to utilize state of the art software to engage students to learn in the fields of history, geography, engineering, sciences, and technology through GIS. This program supports the mission of the CSU while presenting the opportunity for corporate, federal, and state level support. Goal: Global Leadership Program Detailed Needs Assessment: The primary purpose of the Global Leadership Program would be to prepare Cal Poly Pomona students to be global citizens, which fits with the stated values of the university. In a rapidly shrinking world where global citizens are economically and technologically networking in ways unprecedented in history, the project would provide funds for low income students to participate in study abroad programs. Priority would be placed on participation in short and long-term study abroad that provides academic credit toward a degree or program such as the International Studies Minor. Goal: Consortium for Hispanic studies Detailed Needs Assessment: The Consortium for Hispanic Behavioral Sciences would have the mission to educate and train undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty, across disciplinary fields in topics related to Hispanic humanities and liberal arts (e.g., identity, health disparities, cross-cultural human development, culturally- sensitive counseling, Latin American history and literature). Faculty members would receive funding to develop or revise classes, conduct research, engage in other scholarly activity, and apply action research (defined by Stokols, 2006) in the Latina/o community on topics related to Hispanic behavioral sciences. Undergraduates will be selected to do independent or mentored research. Faculty would be chosen for training (e.g., travel reimbursement) and to receive mini-grant funding for research or course development. Institute funding will be used to offer classes and workshops related to Hispanic behavioral sciences, provide research fellowships for students and faculty, defray costs of travel to professional conferences, and provide equipment and supplies for educational and research projects. The Institute would provide needed research infrastructure at Cal Poly Pomona, elevate the research status of the university and its faculty, and prepare faculty for obtaining external funding. Goal: Institute for Human Rights Detailed Needs Assessment: The purpose of this institute is to promote research and community activism centered around issues pertaining to Human Rights and social justice both locally and internationally. Given the recent growth in scholarship and interest in scholarship related to human rights, now would be an ideal time to create an interdisciplinary institute focused on these issues. The mission of the institute would be three fold. First, the institute would support and promote research by faculty and encourage student engagement in these areas. Second, the institute would train future advocates of human rights and social justice by offering an interdisciplinary minor/certificate in international human rights studies available to eligible students. Third, the institute would support community initiatives in terms of research and community activism and advocacy. In addition, the institute would host a variety of events designed to raise awareness about key issues and ongoing research. Events such as conferences, lectures, and open dialogues with community leaders would provide an opportunity to showcase research and facilitate community outreach. The center would also offer internships and travel opportunities to students, faculty, and community leaders. An interdisciplinary journal on human rights and social justice published by the institute would be a long term goal. The institute would make use of existing resources such as the international center to help build the program. Goal: The Institute for Ethics, Law & Policy Detailed Needs Assessment: The proposed Institute for Ethics, Ethics, and Policy (IELP) hopes to serve as a cornerstone of Cal Poly Pomona’s renewed commitment to attitudes and aptitudes that define liberal education. The mission of the IELP is to support programs and collaborations that • enable critical dialogue concerning ethical and social issues salient in contemporary life • promote ideals of informed and responsible citizenship on the regional, national, and global levels • demonstrate how sustained reflection and inquiry into ethical and social issues promotes their resolution, along with beneficial social change • forge mutually beneficial partnerships between the university and its campus and community constituencies in the service of this mission. Cal Poly Pomona’s IELP has already introduced a number of innovative programs that contribute to student learning and community engagement in distinctive ways. The Ethics Conference, Ethics Bowl, Judicial Internship, and Clinical Ethics Practicum all help to promote the learning objectives that, according to the AAC&U report, are vital to student success in coming decades. The existence of these programs provides evidence of Cal Poly Pomona’s dual commitments to educating socially responsible students and to enhancing the quality of life in the communities it serves. Goal: Interdisciplinary Center for Technical/Professional Writing Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Institute for Immigration Studies Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Institute for the Study of Native American Culture and Society Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Center for Climate and Environmental Studies Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a CEIS (College of Education and Integrative Studies) Scholarship Goal Goal: Doctoral Students (10 scholarships per year) Detailed Needs Assessment: Scholarship endowment in support of working educators to complete a doctorate in educational leadership at Cal Poly Pomona. The EdD is Cal Poly’s first doctoral program. Doctoral students will be paying higher tuition fees, similar to those charged to UC graduate students. Doctoral students will need support during their apprenticeship period as well as scholarships for tuition, books and other expenses as they also remain in their school-based positions. As part of the program, each student will be engaged in a rigorous apprenticeship with an expert, practicing administrator and mentored by another expert in the field. Goal: Credential Students (10 scholarships per year) Detailed Needs Assessment: Scholarships are necessary to support students as they complete a teaching credential. Teacher candidates must work full-time in a public school classroom for two 10-week periods. Currently, it is very difficult for teacher candidates who have supported themselves through college to discontinue working in order to complete student teaching. Exemplary and needy teacher candidates require unique support to be able to concentrate on their classroom teaching during the day and complete remaining coursework at night without working. The Partners in Education (PIE) Sponsor a Future Teacher Scholarship has been established to help our credential students; the endowment requires considerably more support to meet student need. Goal: Ethnic and Women’s Studies (5 scholarships per year) Detailed Needs Assessment: Merit-based scholarships are needed for individuals who seek to make a difference in social services, education, and community settings. These students often seek the knowledge and understanding provided in an in-depth study in gender, ethnic, and multicultural studies. Having these understandings is critical to the changing dynamics of a global economy. Scholarships are necessary to support students who are interested in these fields of study. Goal: Integrated General Education (IGE) Program (5 scholarships per year) Detailed Needs Assessment: Scholarships are sought to support students from all disciplines who enroll in the IGE program as a way of expanding their conception of critical thinking in liberal arts. Rather than viewing education as a set of discrete subject areas, these students have begun to conceptualize world issues as a set of complex, interrelated problems with multiple consequences. IGE students complete all their GE requirements through a set of integrated courses as they enter into their academic major. The IGE program is open to students who do not need remedial work in either math or writing. Goal: Study Abroad (10 scholarships per year) Detailed Needs Assessment: Need based scholarships to support students in experiencing a study abroad program or to complete one of their student teaching experiences in another country. Because many Cal Poly Pomona students have not had first-hand experience outside the United States or the region, it is important for the university to expand their cultural and language competence as part of their learning. In an effort to globalize the curriculum opportunities, students must be able to see that experiencing other cultures is an integral part of their educational experience and preparation for the work force. Goal: Test Registration Fees (Assisting 10 students) Detailed Needs Assessment: Scholarships to pay for the batteries of tests required by the state are needed for many teacher candidates. The testing fees range from $400 to $600 per candidate. These fees are in addition to any other program costs. Faculty Positions Goal: Social Justice and Activism Detailed Needs Assessment: As part of the college and university mission, attention to issues of equity and social justice is an integral part of the curriculum and student experiences. A visiting professorship will allow students and faculty to interact with different experts in the field who come to campus for a finite period of time. The specific area of expertise and point of view will be defined to meet the most current issues of the time. Goal: Education Leadership Detailed Needs Assessment: Lecture Series – Bringing the best and most current experts in the field of educational leadership to the campus will allow doctoral students, masters and credential candidates, as well as the campus community to interact and learn from those who are making a difference in education and communities. The lecture series may be designed to meet current issues and address regional and state needs. Goal: Endowed Chair in Gender, Ethnic, Multicultural Studies Detailed Needs Assessment: An endowed position to support an individual to address an ethnic, gender, or cultural perspective not covered by the current faculty. Oftentimes it is difficult to have all the areas of expertise within the faculty considering the finite resources of the state. This position would specifically address an area that is not covered by current faculty—which would change over time as faculty members change. Current needs include Native American, Hispanic/Chicano Studies, Asian Studies, etc. Goal: Visiting International Scholar Detailed Needs Assessment: On-going support is needed to bring international education scholars to campus to both teach and provide interaction opportunities for students and faculty. The university and region can benefit from the perspective of the international community scholars who, while working on their research, can cause the faculty and students to question current educational assumptions, build international relationships, and share ideas. International scholars require support for living expenses as well as professional development support. Programs Goal: Workshops to support preparation for standardized testing Detailed Needs Assessment: Provide an on-going series of workshops to support teacher candidates to pass the battery of standardized tests required by the state of California, at the present time that includes the CSET, RICA, and CBEST. Currently, there are two batteries of tests, which cost teacher candidates from $400 to $600 to complete. Candidates who are second language learners often must take the test batteries multiple times to be successful. Test preparation workshops have been proven to be extremely helpful in increasing the pass-rate. While workshops currently exist through Extended University, the workshops require a fee and are only stages when sufficient enrollments have been received. An on-going series would allow teacher candidates to attend the workshops multiple times at no cost. Capital Projects Goal: Curriculum Center (Library) Detailed Needs Assessment: Establish a dedicated space in the library to house current curriculum materials, a developing collection of children’s literature, and a space for educator to prepare materials for their students. The space would be outfitted with current technology designed to research and create learning materials, review state- approved curriculum materials, and check out children’s literature to use in the classroom. Work space should include large tables, supplies, Ellison dye-cut machines, laminators, book binders, etc. An on-going budget is necessary to staff the center part-time, continuously up-date materials and equipment as well as replenish supplies. Goal: Professional Development School (PDS) space in public schools Detailed Needs Assessment: Either renovation or purchase of portable buildings to locate on partner public school site as a center for training teacher candidates in conjunction with supporting the learning of children in schools. The site may be thematically designated—such as focusing on science, math, and technology; visual and performing arts; writing and literacy, etc. Costs include the purchase or renovation of the building and purchase of technology, equipment, and supplies. An on-going budget for updating and replenishing supplies and equipment would make an ideal package. Collins College Goal: New Collins College Academic Facility Detailed Needs Assessment: A new Collins College academic facility would provide additional, much needed classrooms and faculty offices. Additionally, it would provide a physical location for a proposed Collins College graduate program and modular classrooms capable of handling large format classes and industry speakers. Jim Collins has suggested that the building might be situated in the “saddle” between The Collins College wine cellar and the Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch. The initial concept includes a 150-seat auditorium style classroom on the bottom level (two 75-seat classrooms that would open into one). The top floor would contain 6 to 10 faculty offices, and two graduate seminar rooms (similar in size and layout to The Collins College’s Hideo Amemiya Board Room). It is proposed that the building of this facility would be funded with a $5 million donation from Jim & Carol Collins with the remainder to be solicited from our Board members, with Jim’s assistance. A design firm will be retained to perform feasibility studies and to provide cost estimates. The College will use this data to prepare a case statement to present to Jim & Carol Collins and other potential donors. Goal: Leadership Institute Detailed Needs Assessment: From one small restaurant in Pasadena to more than 1,000 locations in 36 states and Puerto Rico, Andrew and Peggy Cherng have grown Panda into a billion dollar empire employing more than 18,000 associates. Much of Panda’s phenomenal success has been attributed to Andrew Cherng’s leadership style, characterized by values rooted in self-awareness and personal development. Following Dean Feinstein’s week-long internship at Panda and discussions with Andrew and Peggy Cherng, The Collins College is engaged in research to develop a case for a leadership institute in Andrew and Peggy’s name. The program will distill Andrew’s philosophical beliefs into a comprehensive program to benefit not only Panda employees but the larger hospitality industry. A leadership program named for and endorsed by Andrew and Peggy Cherng’s stature will greatly increase the visibility of The Collins College within the industry, helping us to build a better “brand.” This program will be used to strengthen the relationship with the College of Business. Goal: Kellogg West Conference Center and Lodge Detailed Needs Assessment: Due to its geographic proximity to The Collins College, public perception of Kellogg West Conference Center & Lodge is that it is linked to the College. Dean Feinstein has engaged in preliminary discussions with Dr. Ortiz, Ed Barnes, Paul Storey, and Andy Abelman to explore ways in which The Collins College, Kellogg West, and the University at large might mutually benefit from this perception. All parties are in agreement that Kellogg West will require either a complete refurbishment or, possibly, rebuilding in order to raise it to the level of a world-class facility. In partnership with various University representatives and Collins College Board members with expertise in this area, Dean Feinstein is exploring which of these options will best suit the goal. The Collins College will take a lead in the capital campaign to raise the funds needed to either refurbish or rebuild. A renewed conference center and hotel will provide first-class conference and lodging accommodations to the campus and surrounding communities, bringing added exposure to the University and raising its stature, and will also provide The Collins College the opportunity to investigate ways it might enhance its program: for example, utilizing the facilities as a “living lab,” thereby creating a broader educational experience for its students, or using the space to host retreats for the proposed Cherng Leadership Institute. Goal: J. Michael & Betty Ortiz Faculty Development Fund Detailed Needs Assessment: Continue to grown the endowment for faculty for professional development and travel. There is a need for faculty to continue to receive an annual fund for them to increase their academic capabilities. Examples of these appropriate expenses include membership fees to academic and professional organizations, travel to conferences and subscriptions to trade journals. Goals: Unrestricted Scholarship Fund Detailed Needs Assessment: Create a new pool of scholarships to attract and retain high-achieving incoming freshman. Eliminate the barriers posed to some by rising tuition costs, strengthening accessibility for deserving students. Help support ambitious new Collins College outreach efforts to partner with local high schools and community colleges to attract students. Goal: Faculty Fellows Program Detailed Needs Assessment: The Faculty Fellow Program will enable The Collins College to subsidize a faculty member’s reduced course load and will provide the special resources that will allow him/her to spend a greater portion of their time engaged in academic and professional development activities. New professors, in particular, require special attention as they are faced with issues of joining a new academic community, establishing their teaching activities, and navigating a new institution. Further, as tenure-track faculty, they are expected to establish their research agenda, to serve on College and University committees, and to provide service to the community and the discipline. “Despite the challenges presented by state salary limits and the high cost of relocating to, and living in, Southern California, The Collins College has succeeded in building a strong, diverse faculty,” Feinstein said. “However, if we are to continue to compete with other top hospitality programs, we must be able to provide a level of support that will ensure a faculty member’s ability to develop to his/her full potential.” College of Engineering Goal: Bldg 9 Lab Equipment Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Bldg 17 Lab Equipment Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Equipment Endowment Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Bldg 9-Short Walkway & Windows Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Bldg 13 Upgrades & Renewal Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Bldg 17 Upgrades & Solar Platform Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Bldg 9 Tall Surfaces & Upgrades Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: MEP Study Center Naming Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Stadium Seating Adjacent Meadow Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Prof Practice Faculty Endowments (5 each) Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Scholarship Endowments Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Bridge Bldg 9 to Bldg 17 Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: Art Dept. Facility outside Bldg 13 Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: TT Faculty Endowments 50% (5) Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a Goal: PLTW Detailed Needs Assessment: n/a College of Environmental Design Building Capital and Facilities Enhancement Goal: Additional Space for Architecture and Enhanced Facilities for all Departments Detailed Needs Assessment: The College continues to lack adequate space to accommodate demand for its programs. Architecture has been impacted for over thirty years due to space limitations, and annually admits only 5-10% of all applicants to the undergraduate program. Other programs have experienced tremendous growth in recent years and have outgrown their studios and classrooms. Furthermore, many programs are spread across campus in multiple facilities, presenting barriers to learning which have been identified by bodies that accredit our professional programs. Additional space is needed to expand and consolidate the Architecture program in the vicinity of the Interim Design Center. This addition would also create space for landscape architecture and Urban and regional planning as spaces currently occupied by Architecture in the vicinity of Building 7 would be vacated, allowing these programs to expand and consolidate. Expansion of our programs is vital to address enrollment needs and the demand of the environmental design professions. The vast majority of our students are from diverse and underrepresented minority populations in Southern California and many are the first in their family to go to college. As the only public College of Environmental Design in southern California, we are a critical resource for this group. The excellent reputations of our programs continue to grow and we expect the pressure to admit more students will only increase. We need additional and consolidated spaces to meet our current needs, and considerable new space to allow for additional growth. Goal: Classrooms of the Future – as “flexible spaces” Detailed Needs Assessment: A continual obstacle to flexibility in ENV’s course offerings is the static nature of classrooms that are set up for seminar, lecture, or studio. The ENV departments of Urban and Regional Planning, Graphic and Fine Art, and Landscape Architecture, offer a variety of types of courses without sufficient space for the necessary variety of dedicated rooms. It is difficult to utilize one space that has been dedicated for one purpose and adapt it for an entirely different use. This project would advance work already undertaken with the Steelcase Corporation to identify uses and appropriate classroom configurations, furniture, etc. that would promote flexibility in use. Classrooms of the future will not be dedicated, but will allow transformation of the space for a variety of evolving needs. The emphasis is not on technology – this is not conversion into “smart” classrooms. Rather, the emphasis is on developing “flexible spaces” that will be the classrooms of the future. Goal: Parking Area for the Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies Detailed Needs Assessment: Limited parking availability has hindered the educational and demonstration components of the Lyle Center’s mission. In addition, the design of parking lots that minimize their impact on the environment in terms of stormwater runoff and associated pollution represent a significant environmental challenge for urbanized communities. The Center has the opportunity to resolve it’s parking issues while demonstrating cutting-edge environmental design at the same time, through the development of a low-impact parking area. Goal: Dedicated Space for University Art Collections Detailed Needs Assessment: ENV seeks to secure a new climate-controlled space, in which the entire university art and design collections (now scattered across campus in cramped and often inaccessible areas) would be consolidated. This multi-use space would include a dedicated exhibit gallery, a public access viewing area where faculty, students and other researchers could view the collection for scholarly study and for classroom demonstrations, and work-storage areas. The work-storage areas would be subdivided into four spaces: 1) an area for conservation and restoration where artifacts would be treated and made seismically secure; 2) a documentation area with color-balanced lights, and a digital camera for photographing artwork; 3) a packing and shipping area for circulating exhibits and wrapping items for storage and for storing art crates; and 4) an area with a desk and a laptop with collections management software. When additional space becomes available, additional archival art racks for storing paintings would be needed, as well as a flexible, accessible storage system for sculpture. Goal: Student Workstations Detailed Needs Assessment: To provide direct support for student development, through the provision of collaborative student work spaces for two separate ENV programs (Art and Regenerative Studies) that encourage creative thinking, academic excellence, and a strong sense of community. Endowed Positions Goal: Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies – Endowed Chair for Sustainable Systems Detailed Needs Assessment: This endowed chair will directly support the Center’s mission of advancing our understanding of environmental sustainability, by contributing expertise in one or more of the fundamental systems essential for community resilience. Experts holding this chair would contribute to the study of food, water, energy, shelter and waste systems, as well as community or natural processes. The position would be responsible for teaching courses related to their expertise, connecting with students and faculty in support of Center demonstration and outreach efforts, and raising the visibility of the Center through publications and presentations. This would be a rotating appointment that would allow various areas of expertise to contribute to the mission of the Center over time. Goal: Landscape Architecture – Endowed Faculty Fellow Detailed Needs Assessment: A Faculty Fellowship position would enable the Department to support hiring beyond the tenure-track, assistant professor level. Being able to hire at least one professor to an endowed chair would greatly augment the Department of Landscape Architecture’s cadre of faculty, and enhance the Department’s reputation and recruitment of top, tenure-track faculty. Goal: Urban and Regional Planning – Faculty Fellow for Sustainable Urban Design Detailed Needs Assessment: This endowed position would directly support and advance the mission of the Department to further sustainability practices through urban design. Urban design is a central focus of the Department which has hosted the national Dale Prize events on this topic, including this last year’s focus on collaboration in design. This position would emphasize collaboration and outreach with other departments in the college. The position would be responsible for teaching courses on sustainable design, connecting with students and faculty in community projects and service learning courses, and raising the visibility of the department and college through publications, successful community projects, and presentations. This would be a rotating appointment that would allow various practitioners and academics to contribute to the mission of the department over time. Goal: Art – Endowed Visiting Professor Detailed Needs Assessment: The endowed visiting professorship would directly support the Department’s mission to promote a sense of community beyond the immediate creative environment, through fostering of global awareness, and by hiring national and international experts in fine arts, graphic design, and art history. The position would be responsible for teaching courses related to their expertise, connecting with students and faculty in support of departmental outreach efforts, and raising the visibility of the program through publications and presentations. This would be a rotating appointment that would allow experts from the various disciplines to contribute to the mission of the Department over time. Faculty Development and Enrichment Goal: Faculty Development Endowment for each of 5 ENV Departments Detailed Needs Assessment: The College’s interdisciplinary model of teaching, research and outreach requires the participation and cooperation of faculty above and beyond their already demanding workload. Class sizes among the ENV disciplines are large and increasing still. Faculty development incentives are essential for the sustained participation of faculty. Funds would be used to provide release time for the development of original, applied, and interdisciplinary research by faculty to advance the central mission of the college. Opportunities for travel, equipment, conferences, and to conduct scholarly and creative activity, would prove invaluable. Academic Enhancement and Programmatic Support Goal: New Collaborative Majors and Graduate Programs Detailed Needs Assessment: The College of Environmental Design contains departments, which share a number of common emphases including focuses on urban design, management of practices at local and regional levels, and achievement of sustainability through design of sites, neighborhoods, and transportation networks. This project would advance the overall mission of the college and departments through collaborative development of new majors growing out of demonstrated strengths of the departments. It responds to the emerging need to restructure education to provide flexible, innovative, interdisciplinary programs that would prepare students for new directions in these related fields. An initial list of possible collaborative majors would include Urban Design, Sustainable Practices, and Planning Management. Goal: Support for Outreach and Collaboration Detailed Needs Assessment: As a leader in developing sustainable communities, the Lyle Center and ENV’s design and planning programs play a vital role in outreach to communities, addressing specific environmental and urban challenges in specific places, at specific points in time. The potential for local, regional and international outreach is outstanding, however funding is essential to support for student/faculty/staff/community ideas that can be developed into concepts capable of generating self-sustaining funds. Goal: Green Campus Incubation Detailed Needs Assessment: As a leader on green issues within higher education and the Cal Poly Pomona campus community, there is an ongoing need for resources to support innovative research and demonstration of green technology and practices. Typically developed by the Lyle Center at the pilot scale, these technologies can be transferred and scaled-up to serve the broader mission of the climate commitment adopted by Cal Poly Pomona, as well as other institutions. Funding is essential as seed support for student/faculty/staff ideas that can be developed into concepts capable of generating self-sustaining funds. Goal: Habitat 21 Initiative Detailed Needs Assessment: Long term support for this initiative would enable the Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies to develop, implement, and evaluate sustainable settlement strategies for disenfranchised communities in lesser-developed nations. This mission would be achieved by mobilizing academic and professional expertise, and partnering with non-governmental organizations and others actively working in such communities. The program would advance the development of sustainable applications in the areas of Affordable Housing and Shelter Design, Renewable Energy Technology, GIS Support & Modeling, Community Development, Water Resource Management, Landscape Hazard Avoidance & Mitigation, Sustainable Agriculture, Ecological Planning and Restoration, International Education. Goal: Service Learning Project Endowment Detailed Needs Assessment: ENV programs have a long and committed history at CPP of supporting student enrichment through community based service-learning projects. Frequently, these projects deal with “real world” environmental issues in disenfranchised communities that cannot afford professional help. In order to provide professional-level services, financial support is needed to cover expenses related to offering these “hands on” projects that support the university’s polytechnic approach. Student Enrichment Goal: Scholarships for Students Detailed Needs Assessment: • Endowment for College-wide Scholarships. Funding for this endowment would provide (8) entry level scholarships to cover one year’s tuition for an undergraduate and graduate student, in each of the ENV programs of architecture, art, landscape architecture, and urban and regional planning. • Endowment for Graduate Student Scholarships in Regenerative Studies (2 year full ride). The opportunities for top graduate students interested in environmental careers continue to expand. In order to remain competitive in recruiting top students, the Center needs to bolster its support for incoming students. Scholarships that would offset the cost of tuition would allow LCRS to compete with programs at institutions offering tuition waivers for graduate assistants. • President’s Scholars – Named ENV Scholarships (2 awards). This would expand the number of annual President’s Scholars recipients from the College of Environmental Design, from one to three awardees per year. Goal: College-wide Professional Lecture Series Detailed Needs Assessment: Another area that would provide enrichment for ENV students is an endowed lecture series that would be conducted throughout the academic year and the continuation of Modules’ Week classes for the Department of Landscape Architecture. Faculty and students would work together to develop the guest lecture series and attract well-known practitioners, innovators, and researchers to campus once a month to broaden the students’ knowledge base, stimulate cross class-level dialogue, and to enhance their learning experience. A prime example of such a series is seen in the Department of Landscape Architecture’s Modules’ Week, which brings seven to ten guest lecturers to campus to teach intensive, one-week classes. Both a college-wide lecture series and continued funding for Modules week, would greatly invigorate and enhance student learning. Financial support is needed to pay guest lecturers an honorarium and for travel, lodging, etc. Goal: Graduate and Research Assistant Support Detailed Needs Assessment: Support to offer teaching assistantships and research assistantships to graduate students is vital to remain competitive in recruiting top students nationally and internationally; to provide teaching experience to students going into academia; to enhance the undergraduate learning experience by decreasing student-to-faculty ratios in classes with teaching assistants; to provide research assistance to faculty; and to provide opportunities for student to become involved in faculty teaching and research. Goal: Funding for Travel, Conferences, Exhibition and Field Trips Detailed Needs Assessment: The college is seeking annual support for each of its 5 programs to fund student travel, attend design & research conferences, participate in professional meetings, exhibition and publication, participate in field trips and creative activities related to each discipline. Technology Enhancement Goal: Upgrades for Labs/Classrooms/Faculty Offices Detailed Needs Assessment: This priority would allow for upgrades to support teaching, research and demonstration within the college by equipping prominent academic spaces throughout ENV facilities (classroom, lab, studio and exhibition spaces) with the latest technology. Projection systems, multimedia and 3D modeling equipment, and videoconferencing technology would allow students and faculty to maintain sophisticated levels of communication related to scholarship and test applications in the design, planning and building sciences areas. Goal: Collections Management Software for University Art and ENV Collections Detailed Needs Assessment: The Art and Visual Resources Libraries (VRL) house some 215,000 slides. Upgrades to existing software would enable the scanning of slides formerly housed by the Art and VRL curators. Current and anticipated uses for the slide collections dictate a shift away from dependence on an individual to provide access to images, to the use of an online data base accessible to Cal Poly Pomona faculty and students. The costs associated with the online data base include EmbARK, a Web Kiosk Software, Upgrades and maintenance fees, a MacPro with server software, and an Apple Cinemas Display 20” monitor. Goal: Academic Exchange Programs Detailed Needs Assessment: To provide on-going support for ENV’s international exchange programs and enable scholarly and cultural immersion for students wishing to study abroad in our sister programs located in China, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Mexico and other Latin American countries. Neutra House Rehabilitation Detailed Needs Assessment: Funds would be used for the urgent restoration and rehabilitation and curatorial efforts needed to maintain the former home and studio of one of modern architecture’s founding figures, Richard J. Neutra. The property, known as the Richard and Dion Neutra VDL II Research House, was gifted to the university in the early 90’s and serves today as an academic resource for students at CPP and the greater design community in southern California and beyond. As the current stewards of the home, the College of Environmental Design, seeks support to undertake the work necessary to stabilize the structure(s) and prevent additional damage to this seminal example of modern design. Outreach & Public Relations Detailed Needs Assessment: To support outreach to alumni, donors and friends of the college, through electronic and print publications, departmental and college-wide events and receptions, and website development to promote the work of the students and faculty of the College of Environmental Design. In addition, website support would enable release time for a faculty member to design, update and maintain the ENV website. This would also serve as a critical source for communication among new and existing students, alumni and professional practitioners, and the community. Support Positions Goal: Resource Specialist for ENV Archives and Special Collections Detailed Needs Assessment: The ENV Archives-Special Collections contains some of the most important, but little studied, collections of professional design records in southern California. Its holdings include the records of architects Richard Neutra, Raphael Soriano, Craig Ellwood, Donald Wexler and landscape architects John Lyle and Francis Dean. Selections from these collections have been published in a number of books and journal articles but the totality of their value as research materials for educational and scholarly purposes has been impeded by the lack of a full-time, professionally trained Visual Resources Specialist. The Visual Resources Specialist would develop strategies for project planning and implementation; oversee the processing of complex architectural, landscape architecture and planning collections, and implement the online cataloging, manage Archives website, and promote the collections through publication and exhibit. Goal: Tech Support for Dedicated Art Studios Detailed Needs Assessment: This priority would greatly enhance the teaching and learning environment for faculty and students in the Graphic Design studios within the Department of Art. College of Science Goal: Student Experiences in Science and Math Fund Detailed Needs Assessment: Support for student laboratory research, field & industrial experiences, and/or community involvement that would include stipends, supplies, and transportation. Goal: Edge for Excellence Fund (Endowed) Detailed Needs Assessment: Support to provide and sustain state of the art equipment for students to use in learning current practices, including maintenance contracts, technical support, refurbishment and replacement costs. These are things the State can no longer supply at the level required at a polytechnic. Goal: Scholarship Fund for New Undergraduate and Graduate Students (Endowed) Detailed Needs Assessment: Support to provide student/s, including incoming and transfer, full cost of a first class polytechnic education (fees, books & supplies, room & board and transportation; including student travel & related expenses participation in professional conferences) for 1 – 4 years. Goal: Endowed Support for Chairs & Post Docs, Professional Lecture Series and a Teacher-Scholar Science and Math Fund Detailed Needs Assessment: a. Endowed Chairs Biotechnology Industrial Chemistry Paints & Coatings Science Education Other b. Endowed Teaching Post Doc Fund Support for post docs to develop the required skills for teaching in higher education c.

Endowed Teacher Scholar Science and Math Fund Support for faculty to initiate new research projects, travel to professional conferences, and participate in other professional development activities. Goal: Science Building Fund Detailed Needs Assessment: Maximum building capacity will be reached by 2011. Planning for expansion (new building) is critical. Library Goal: University Library Phase II Detailed Needs Assessment: Phase II – the “Revised Edition”, will result in a total renovation of the upper three floors of the original building as well as a new façade by replacing the existing exterior pre-cast concrete with a combination of light-weight, thin-shelled panels and glass curtain wall. The outcome will be a building in which natural light will be brought into interior spaces. The Library building will literally “glow” at night and passersby at all hours of the day and night will be able to look into the building and see the activity within. Quality of light is of paramount importance to a truly successful library. Artificial light sources will supplement, but not supplant, natural lighting. All of the improvements introduced in Phase I will be extended to the remainder of the building as a result of Phase II, and three additional very important objectives will be achieved: the building and all of its services will be made fully accessible to physically-challenged members of the campus community, the building will be energy efficient and environmentally-friendly in keeping with the campus’ officially-declared commitments to climate neutrality, and the final key-featured area – a Special Collections Room – will be constructed. The separately controlled environment and the technological sophistication of the Special Collections facility conceived as a “jewel box”, will enable the library to house, preserve, digitize, and exhibit its unique treasures that require special conditions and handling. The library will also be able to acquire more materials of this kind by gift and/or purchase because the special environmental preconditions will have been met. When Phase II is completed, the University Library will accommodate 1.4 million volumes and serve a student enrollment of 25,000 FTE. Goal: Grand Reading Room Endowment Detailed Needs Assessment: The Grand Reading Room is a two-story volume reading area (including mezzanine level) featuring a majestic setting with a captivating view of the campus and the mountains, with plentiful and comfortable seating. The endowment would allow future refresh and enhancement of the Grand Reading Room. Goal: Deanship Endowment Detailed Needs Assessment: In addition to salary enhancements, such an endowment can provide for other programmatic needs such as the purchase of equipment, travel, library resources, student support and agreed upon activities related to the programmatic mission it serves. Goal: Productivity Center Endowment Detailed Needs Assessment: Strategically located adjacent to the Learning Commons, is a user friendly, hi-tech facility with 53 workstations where students prepare research papers and projects of academic value in a setting that promotes collaboration. The endowment would allow for future refresh and enhancement of the Productivity Center. Goal: Learning Commons Endowment Detailed Needs Assessment: Strategically located at the point of entry to the Library, encourages “search and discovery” through its 36-workstations center offering state-of-the-art technology in a supportive research friendly environment. The endowment would allow future refresh and enhancement of the Learning Commons. Goal: Endowed Distinguished Librarianship; Discipline Specific Librarianship; Distinguished Service Librarianship Detailed Needs Assessment: This category may be used to recruit or retain librarians or honor senior or promising young librarians who have made a notable and sustained contribution to librarianship/information science. It provides the ability to maintain academic strength and sustain service to the community. The appointment is made by the dean in consultation with the provost and librarians. As with all appointments, they must be renewed on an annual basis but are indefinite and typically will stay within the discipline of origin in perpetuity. Academic Affairs Central Academic Affairs – Center for Community Service Learning Goal: Endowment to Support Scholars in the Community Detailed Needs Assessment: This initiative seeks to promote engaged research done with and for the community, enabling faculty members to grow as teacher-scholars, giving greater cohesiveness to their research, teaching and service activities. It also provides opportunities for students to take active roles in research and to collaborate with faculty and community partners. Goal: Endowment to Support Engaged Student Leaders Detailed Needs Assessment: This initiative provides students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills promoting civic engagement while providing faculty with much-needed assistance. Goal: Endowment to Support Engagement with the Community Detailed Needs Assessment: The Center for Community Service-Learning presents eight awards for civic engagement at its annual Community-Campus Mixer. Currently recipients receive only a trophy and our gratitude for their extraordinary work in the community. This endowment would allow each award winner to receive a monetary award of $1,000 each. Goal: Creating Engaged Faculty Leaders Detailed Needs Assessment: This initiative seeks to nurture engagement among faculty and students, providing opportunities to reward engaged scholarship and teaching, develop skills and grow into leadership roles. Central Academic Affairs – Kellogg Honors College Goal: Honors College Scholarships for top Entering Freshmen Detailed Needs Assessment: These scholarships for the most highly ranked admits to the Honors College would cover full fees and residential costs (including meals), as well as a stipend for books. The cost above is calculated for twenty students at $15,000 per student for four years. Goal: Endowment to Support International Experiences for Honors College Students Detailed Needs Assessment: $5000 for 20 Honors College students to participate in study abroad programs in their fields designed for outstanding students. Goal: Endowment to Support Summer Research Fellowships and Travel Grants Detailed Needs Assessment: Summer stipends for Honors College students to participate in undergraduate research ($4,000 per student for 10 students) and travel grants for students to present results of undergraduate research at professional conferences ($1,500 per student for 20 students.)
