EN-13: Community Stakeholder Engagement
Facilities Planning and Management
Has the institution adopted a framework for community stakeholder engagement in governance, strategy and operations?:
A brief description of the policies and procedures that ensure community stakeholder engagement is applied systematically and regularly across the institution’s activities:
Science Alliance - http://www.uww.edu/cls/alumni/science-alliance: The Science Alliance involves a group of 30 science alumni who meet with science faculty annually to discuss ways to strengthen the science programs and offer advice to improve the UW-Whitewater student experience. Science Alliance members are friends and alumni of the University. They are civic leaders, individuals with expertise and knowledge that can be extremely beneficial to students and faculty in the sciences, and their relationship to the college is one of dedication and affection. Ideally, the size of the Alliance will be between 20-30 persons.
College of Education and Professional Studies Dean's Advisory Board - http://www.uww.edu/coeps/about-us/dab:
Dean's Advisory Board members include both alumni and friends of the university. They are civic leaders, individuals with knowledge and expertise that can be highly beneficial to both the students and faculty within the College of Education and Professional Studies. Board members represent a range of careers, backgrounds and expertise.
College of Letters and Sciences Dean's Advisory Board - http://www.uww.edu/cls/alumni/deans-advisory-board:
The critical evaluation and valuable advice provided by members is an important dialogue with alumni and friends. The Dean's Advisory Board was established to carry out, on an ongoing basis, the functions of external review and recommendations on the programs and potential of the College of Letters and Sciences, while serving the added function of interpreting the College's programs externally. Dean's Advisory Board members are friends and alumni of the University. They are civic leaders, individuals with expertise and knowledge that can be extremely beneficial to students and faculty in L & S, and their relationship to the college is one of dedication and affection. Ideally, the size of the board will be between 20-30 persons. The membership of the board will include civic and community leaders.
College of Business and Economics Dean's Advisory Council - http://blogs.uww.edu/uwwcobe/2012/10/student-org-spotlight-deans-advisory-council/: The primary intent of the DAC is to provide a channel of communication between the student body and the Dean so that we may provide input for, discuss the issues of, and facilitate any changes in the College of Business & Economics experience. The DAC accomplishes this by communicating with CoBE’s student organizations to try to better understand the pulse of the community. Additionally, the DAC provides a platform for student organizations to collaborate with each other as well as help each other be successful. This platform is especially beneficial to efforts like PSE’s business week which will be held early this November.
Additionally, the College of Arts and Communication has a Dean's Advisory Board, but information was not available online at time of submission. Description and representation is very similar to other two boards listed above.
A brief description of how the institution identifies and engages community stakeholders, including any vulnerable or underrepresented groups:
Science Alliance: Alliance members represent a variety of careers, backgrounds, and expertise. An effort will be made to include diversity within the membership, male-female balance, and desirable ratio of local to non-local members.
College of Education and Professional Studies Dean's Advisory Board: A strong effort will be made to include diversity with the membership itself, male-female balance, and desirable ratio of local to non-local members.
College of Letters and Sciences Dean's Advisory Board: Board members represent a variety of careers, backgrounds, and expertise. An effort will be made to include diversity within the membership, male-female balance, and desirable ratio of local to non-local members.

More instances of public engagement may exist, so a more comprehensive inventory of these efforts can be conducted with assistance from Marketing and Media Relations and the Office of University Advancement.
