REDUCTION          will need to reallocate 0.74% of its budget to cover projected marginal cost increases for
                   FY04, or 2.9% when considering the generation of a 2.5% pool for salary increases.
                   College intends to absorb as much of this reallocation as possible centrally from college

                   Proposed 4% cut will have the following impact:

                   decline.

IMPACT OF          will be eliminated.
PROPOSED           3) Basic office supplies and art materials will be limited.
CHANGES            4) Faculty travel funding will be reduced again; support to Arts student groups will be
                   reduced or eliminated.
                   5) Faculty positions will remain vacant, necessitating reevaluation of teaching areas within

                       From last year:
                         Total number participating: 736.
                        Plans to enhance:
                         Plan to increase performances/exhibits of student work downtown, continue
                          collaborations with local arts groups, and eventually create an Urban Arts Space
                          downtown, used and managed by students.
                         Art: New Freshman Seminar course on undergrad research in the studio arts; Art
                          585, a required a seminar for undergrads; Arts 595 will focus on URPs/Honors
                          Projects; considering development of new Honors courses.
                         Design: Dept. has committed research funds to be shared between faculty and
                          student researchers as an incentive to participate in the Denman Forum.
                          Involvement of undergrads in research will be assessed in faculty annual review.
                         Theatre: Building relationships with local and regional producing organizations to
                          create add’l student internships.

                       1. As suggested by our rankings, we assess the level of scholarly/research productivity
                          across the college as excellent. Barriers to increasing productivity include time,
                          money for equipment, and technical support.
                       2. Art: Productivity in Art ranges from complex works requiring months or years of
                          preparation, to exhibitions of new paintings, to print works in many exhibitions, and
                          international participation exhibitions in new technologies.
ASSESSMENT OF
                       3. Art Education: Level of faculty scholarly/research productivity is the best in the field.

                       4. Design: Level of junior faculty productivity is increasing. Encouraging greater
PRODUCTIVITY              research productivity among more senior faculty is constrained by the need for their
                          deep involvement in teaching and a fall-off in funding for design research.
                       5. History of Art: Annual assessment of activities may not be the best measure of
                          productivity in this field. Faculty scholarly activity over the last few years has
                          resulted in a positive impact on the quality of graduate applicants.
                       6. Theatre: Annual review meetings emphasize enhancing/developing research
                          initiatives. Chair encourages research conversations throughout the year.

                       From last year:
STRATEGIES TO            College Research Grant programs, Arts & Humanities Seed Grant Program..
INCREASE FACULTY
                         SRAs, FPLs. Must balance leaves with need to maintain/increase enrollments.
RESEARCH
PRODUCTIVITY             When appropriate, some units able to support research with cash, GA assistance,
                          release time, computer infrastructure or matching funds for travel and research.

                    1. Art: Rapid prototyping remains a potential for an interdisciplinary center that would
                       involve faculty in medicine and various sciences. A recent Innovation Grant award of
                       $45,000, with co-PIs from Art, Entomology, and Physics as well as space dedicated
                       in Hopkins Hall for the facility, will lay the foundation for a center.
                    2. Design: Discussions continue regarding a potential Center for Integrated Design.
                    3. History of Art: Increasing activity in Film Studies, Classical Studies, and/or Classical
                       Architecture areas that could lead to a future interdisciplinary center.
                    4. Theatre: None, although it would like to return to a discussion about establishing a

INTERDISCIPLINARY
CENTERS
                    Last year:
                      Art and its interdisciplinary partners in the rapid prototyping are looking toward the
                       possibility of a facility or center that would bring the group’s interests together.
                      Design is in discussions with the depts. in Engineering about a potential “Center for
                       Integrated Design,” with funding sought from the automotive industry.
                      Music is investigating potential for a Center for American Studies.
                      Theatre: Serious interest from Humanities, esp. Comparative Studies, in
                       Consortium on Cultural Performance started by Theatre in 1999.

                    1. ACCAD: Computer graphics and animation, virtual environments, motion capture
                       database development, evolutionary design, dance and performance technology.
                    2. Art: Interdisciplinary work (art and technology), major sculptural installations, new
                       works in all media, traditional and otherwise.
                    3. Art Education: Issues of visual culture pedagogy, teaching contemporary art and art
IDENTIFIED             criticism, social/cultural issues in art education, museum education, distance
RESEARCH               education, cultural policy, arts management.
EMPHASIS/EXPLICIT   4. Dance: Choreography and performance, lighting design for dance, dance and
PRIORITIES             technology, Laban studies/Labanotation, dance theory and criticism
                    5. Design: User-centered design is the emphasis that links areas; visualization also
                       crosses areas. In industrial and interior space design, semantics is a unifying
                       research theme. Visual Communication theme is viewer-centered interaction design.
                    6. History of Art: Growing portion of faculty have expertise in art theory & criticism.
                    7. Theatre: Performer-generated ―New Works.‖

                    1. Research Grants: College supports grants to faculty, invests in research through
                       Faculty Grant-in Aid program. College is also eager to work with faculty to develop
                       external sponsorship for individual and collaborative projects.
                    2. Overseas Matching Travel Grants: Up to $1500 for invited research presentations,
                       exhibition or performances at significant professional meetings or events overseas.
INVESTMENT OF
FY05 RESOURCES
                    3. Credit-Hour Generation: Over the last two fiscal years, college invested $340K
                       annually to address course demand. In FY04 this netted an increase of 7,500 credit
                       hours over FY03; in FY05 (through WI), an additional 2,600 credit hours over FY04.
                    4. Materials submitted for proposed MFA degree in Entertainment Arts and
                       Technologies, which will produce an additional 900 credit hours annually and nearly
                       $500,000 in income from fees and subsidy.
