  • Benefit better with coordination and perspective

    • Continued support and patience

      • Make the research experience better: if you find a better way, do it!

      • ERC plays an important part

        • Community needs to be aware of system and situation

    • To change general perception, invite correction

      • For the past 10 years, OVPR focused on compliance side with split office of Graduate and OVPR into two offices. OVPR is viewed as compliance and has negative baggage.

        • Promote/advocate research, reduce the burdens, advocate at a state/federal level. Currently not well represented in OVPR

Life cycle of centers
Group members:

Gary Balas, Vic Bloomfield, Mark Paller, Tom Schenk, Peggy Sundermeyer


Existing policies:

Creating and Evaluating Interdisciplinary Centers (February, 2003)

http://www.fpd.finop.umn.edu/groups/ppd/documents/policy/Interdisciplinary.cfm
Intercollegiate Programs in the Academic Health Center (January, 1998)

http://www.ahc.umn.edu/AHCIPmanual.html


Discussion points:

Current policy seems adequate to manage new & existing centers



  • Defines “types” with associated infrastructure and financial support

  • Provides a process for establishing and operating them

  • Prescribes level of review and approval needed to establish and continue

  • Requires recurring internal reporting and review

  • Requires periodic external review (for intercollegiate centers)

External sponsors can require that the name (Center, institute) be used


ICR generated by “centers” is not handled uniformly by colleges
Duplication, or near duplication, of names can be problematic, especially for the public
Centers serve many different purposes and standardization is not essential
Centers should be managed as any departmental or collegiate resource so as not to become administratively or financially cumbersome
Closing centers doesn’t happened with regularity, but is possible using existing policies and procedures
CRAD members with experience in establishing or closing centers are available for consultation
