The Vice-Presidents Council (VPC) recently announced base funding totaling $3.0 million beginning in the fiscal year 2014-15 to support ongoing and future work of the three frameworks across the university.
"Memorial's leadership remains committed to investing in our strategic frameworks: Teaching and Learning, Research, and Public Engagement," said Dr. David Wardlaw, provost and vice-president (academic). "We have dedicated people who are involved in worthwhile projects to transform the framework recommendations into actions and results. This funding will enable sustained efforts in support of framework objectives and help to achieve our vision to be one of the most distinguished public universities in Canada and beyond."
The funding allocation and home portfolio for deployment and reporting of the funds is: Public Engagement - $900,000 (President); Research - $900,000 (Vice-President (Research)); and Teaching and Learning - $1,200,000 (Provost and Vice-President (Academic)).
VPC also approved general guidelines for the deployment and reporting requirements for framework funding. The next step is for each home portfolio to develop a plan for deployment of funding in support of framework recommendations and objectives in a manner that is sustainable, effective, and engages the Memorial community. Questions can be directed to the applicable home portfolio.
