What is next?
The “blue sky” group of all the program coordinators, associate deans and department chairs will reconvene in early June to look at the outcomes of the survey and all the discussions, and make a recommendation to the Dean, who will present it to the Faculty Council at a special meeting on June 22nd.
Once we know which model to adopt, the milestones and action plans for the implementation developed by the Rethink the Organization Taskforce will come into play.
How long will it take?
Once we know what the departmental framework for OISE will be, colleagues in these different departments will need the time to work together to define their own goals and priorities, make the decisions about names, spaces, and determine how individually and together we can support the guiding principles.
It will take us a year or two to implement the changes. We will take our time; do this together with the best interest of OISE in mind.
