Committee to Strengthen University Management and Resources
Chaired by the University's executive vice president, the Committee to Strengthen University Management and Resources (SUMAR) identifies and supports efficiencies in central and academic administration that enable the release of resources toward teaching, research, and the student experience.
Specifically, SUMAR identifies and facilitates projects that will strengthen our workforce, business operations, and services; enhance our efficiency; and appropriately utilize our resources. SUMAR encourages all departments to implement changes within their units if they have the ability to do so without central assistance. In cases that are interdepartmental in scope, SUMAR identifies managers to lead the related analysis and possible implementation.
The committee meets quarterly and encourages suggestions and feedback (below). These pages are updated annually.
