The rollout and communications from the administration and other media sources is scattered in several different places and formats. Below is a chronological order of all the information that we are aware of at this time. Please add to the comments if there is anything forgotten and we will update the post.
The first information was an all staff email from Laurie Patton, sent from the Office of the President on June 19th, it is on the web here.
The followup email with an accompanying FAQ from David Provost and Karen Miller came out the following week. It does not seem to be on the Middlebury website, but we posted it on the Staff Council Blog here.
Outside Press picked up the story:
Next communication was in MiddPoints-What’s New with Workforce Planning
The Voluntary Separation Plan was sent by email July 30, it is on the web here, (PDF) , but we can’t seem to find the accompanying PDF of the Staff Incentive Separation Plan Chart.
Staff Council regularly meets with the administration, and we posted a blog article with questions we’d gathered and received answers to on August 3.
August 8th was a blog post from Karen Miller “Defining Our Future State”, with a PDF of FAQ’s here. That document lays out the timeline for the workforce planning process.
Tangentially related to workforce planning and being worked upon concurrently is Institutional Performance Management, that was announced in MiddPoints on August 22.
Staff Council holds it’s first open forum of the year on September 19th, focusing on Workforce Planning. The questions generated were posted to the Staff Council blog, and also submitted to the administration. We hope most of them will be answered at the next open forum.
