Jan. 31, 2012: Faculty Advisory Council Updated on Shared Services Initiative

At the January 31, 2012 meeting of the Faculty Advisory Council for Project 50 Forward, Nancy Squires, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and members of the Operational Excellence Program Management Office updated the Council on the progress and plans for the implementation of shared services in the College.  The goals of the shared services initiative are to standardize service levels across departments and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of administrative support provided to students and faculty.

President Stanley created the Faculty Advisory Council in early 2011 to: provide critical input to the Operational Excellence Steering Committee, advise on ways to reach out to Stony Brook faculty and ensure that recommendations from the Operational Excellence component of Project 50 Forward support the needs of the academic and research community.

Stony Brook is relying on input from all sectors of the campus community to achieve the goals of Operational Excellence.

If you have suggestions to make Stony Brook more effective and efficient, please contact the Project 50 Forward team.
