Administration Management Review Committee Framework
The Administration Management Review Committee (AMRC) is approaching its charge as assigned by the President (http://web.uri.edu/amrc/president-dooleys-charge/) as follows:
- Identify areas of focus and form sub-committees as needed. The sub-committee Chairs will be members of the main AMR Committee but the sub-committee will include additional members of the campus community not serving on the AMRC.
- Research and engage external sources when possible to assist in identifying approaches, areas of focus and project methodology.
- Engage as many URI community members as possible through the following methods
- Maintain an online presence (http://web.uri.edu/amrc/) posting information, news and updates and news accessible to anyone on the Internet.
- Open web page idea submissions on the AMRC site as well as each of the individual sub-committee web sites.
- Utilize online surveys to solicit feedback from campus members.
- Conduct open meetings (“town hall”) at critical turning points in the process.
- Using the URI Communications and Marketing email listserv, send email notices as needed
- During the data gathering phase, the committee will include as much data as possible by:
- Conducting personal interviews as much as possible of the URI leadership, representing all four campuses.
- Benchmark URI data against peer and peer aspirant institutions
- Collect data from online surveys, suggestion forms and open meetings.
- The AMRC will develop its recommendations based on evidence developed during the data gathering phase.
