4 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

5 1 UH Work Group Report Executive Summary History In their February 21, 2014 report to the UH System Board of Regents, the University of Houston Sugar Land Task Force recommended that the existing nursing program at Sugar Land be transferred to the University of Houston and made part of the newly organized UH Health Sciences Center (Attachment 1). The minutes of the February 26, 2014 meeting of the UH System Board of Regents reports that the Board voted unanimously to approve and accept the recommendations from the Sugar Land Task Force (Attachment 2). The charge for the UH Work Group, one of four sub-committees reporting to the UH Sugar Land Transition Team Steering Committee, was to develop an action plan for transferring the nursing program from UHV to UH and to identify and mitigate any potential negative impact this transition would have on UH. The original charge was to complete the transition prior to the Fall semester The UH Work Group was composed of 24 members who represented the UH administration (primarily the Provost s office, enrollment services, the library and IT), the UH Victoria administration, the faculty of the UHV School of Nursing, and UHV nursing students and alumni (Attachment 3). In addition, a number of individuals with expertise in areas of concern served as consultants and provided valuable input into the group s deliberations. The Work Group held its first meeting on May 16 th on the Sugar Land campus; the primary aim of the first meeting was to identify critical issues associated with transferring the UHV nursing program to UH. During this meeting, the group identified a large range of issues that needed to be addressed prior to and during the nursing program transition. At the end of the meeting, individuals were charged with investigating specific issues related to the nursing program transfer (see meeting minutes, Attachment 4). The Work Group reconvened on July 11 th ; the aim of this meeting was to identify any additional actions that needed to be addressed and to review progress on previously identified transition issues. A key finding from the second meeting was that it would not be possible to meet the Fall 2014 time line for transferring the nursing program. In particular, consultations with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools revealed that the SACS approval process would require a minimum of 6 months, effectively delaying the transfer to the Fall semester 2015 (Attachment 5). However, it was also clear that many of the actions required to transfer the nursing program had to be initiated immediately to ensure a smooth transition and that the transfer would be a positive experience for faculty, staff and students. Consequently, 17 sub-groups were formed to work out the logistics in key areas and charged with developing detailed action plans by September 1 st that outlined 1) what needed to be done to complete the transfer, 2) who was responsible for executing the specific actions, and 3) when the actions needed to be initiated and/or completed (Attachment 6). The Work Group met for the third time on September 26 th to review the draft report (meeting minutes Attachment 7) that once updated was submitted to the Executive Director of the Transition Team on October 5 th. Page 1

6 2 Action Plans Important issues associated with the transfer and the essential steps required to complete the transfer of the nursing program to UH are outlined below (for more details see the individual sub-group reports that follow this executive summary). The appendices for the sub-group reports contain related documents, critical information for sub-group actions, and listings of facts, individuals, contracts, and scholarships that will be addressed by the outlined actions. The sub-group issues that required relatively immediate actions are presented first, but each report addresses issues that will potentially have a significant impact on the success of the transition process. Although there is still much to be accomplished, thus far, all critical deadlines have been met and the transition plan is on schedule. A calendar noting critical dates for all actions is provided in Attachment Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Approval According to the THECB s policies, the transfer of a teaching program between public universities is implemented by closing the program at the first institution and then opening a new program at the second institution. The essential actions required for a transfer include: A. Submitting a letter of intent from the Presidents of UHV and UH (submitted July 2014). B. Notifying other public institutions that the UHV nursing program will be transferred to UH (submitted July 2014) and responding to any objections received from neighboring institutions (August 2014). Note that no objections were received within the 30-day response period. C. Submitting a teach-out agreement between UHV and UH that assures the continuity of nursing students education (submitted September 2014). D. Submitting New Program Request Forms for each degree program (submitted September 2014). E. The proposed transfer will be considered during the April 2015 THECB meeting. 2. SACS Approval for Substantive Programmatic Changes For a SACSCOC-accredited institution that is acquiring a program from another institution or adding as a permanent location a site where a teach-out is being conducted must follow the procedures outlined below: A. The SACSCOC president must be notified in writing of the proposed change and the anticipated implementation data (submitted July 2014). B. UH must submit a prospectus describing the proposed changes and a teach-out plan/agreement for UHV nursing students (Submitted September 12, 2014). C. A complete change template must be submitted and a site visit scheduled within 6 months of implementation (Fall 2015). 3. Tuition/Fees For nursing students currently enrolled in the UHV program and for those students entering the UHV nursing program during the academic year, tuition and fees will be maintained at rates equivalent to those charged by UHV for a period of up to four Page 2

7 3 academic years. The UH nursing program tuition and fee schedule for new students entering the program in Fall 2015 will be submitted for approval by the UHS Board of Regents in October Marketing and UH Nursing Website With the delay of the transition date from Fall 2014 to Fall 2015, UHV reactivated its marketing efforts to ensure appropriate enrollment in the UHV nursing program for FY15. UH will begin accepting applications for the Fall 2015 semester in January Prior to that time, the School of Nursing will work with the UH Enrollment Services and the Office of University Marketing and Communications to develop a marketing plan and the associated materials. Similarly, during the Fall 2014 semester, a new website must be developed for the UH School of Nursing that can effectively serve as a recruiting tool and an information center. 5. Student Enrollment Services at UH UH enrollment services will begin actively interacting with applicants for the UH nursing program and UHV transfer students in January Key actions include working with the appropriate UH committees to establish the nursing courses (including the study abroad program) and class schedules in the Fall 2015 course catalog, integrating NursingCAS (centralized application service) with the UH admissions process, developing strategies to transfer UHV students to UH that maintain privacy concerns and ensure continuation of financial aid, incorporating clinical readiness standards into the UH registration process, arranging for HSRT administration via the UH testing center, and developing an orientation program for nursing students in UHSL. 6. Student Services to be implemented by UHSL A board range of student services that are currently being provided by UHV will need to be implemented at UHSL. For example, new services associated with student recruitment, academic advising, financial aid, student health and wellness services, and behavioral health counseling must be established on the Sugar Land campus. These new services, many of which will also be utilized by other UH programs moving to UHSL, must be in alignment with UH policies/procedures. Some of these services will need to be implemented in early 2015 and will require additional resources from UH. 7. Nursing Space Requirements and Reallocation of UHSL Space The anticipated increase in nursing faculty and the relocation of nursing support services to UHSL necessitate an increase in space dedicated to the nursing program. By Fall 2016, the space dedicated to the UH nursing program will be expanded to include all of the offices in the west corner office suite on the third floor of Brazos Hall. This strategy will provide a total of 27 faculty/staff offices for the nursing program and provide convenient adjacencies for nursing faculty, staff, and administration. These changes in space utilization will require UHV faculty who are currently occupying many of these areas that will be utilized by the nursing program to be moved/relocated by the end of the Spring 2016 semester. Additional space within the Sugar Land facilities will also be needed for Fall 2015 to house expanded IT and student health services. Page 3

8 4 Following the transfer to UH, the nursing program will continue to utilize facilities on the UHV campus. In particular, the nursing program will continue to use IT intensive classrooms, the Johnson Patient Care Simulation Laboratory, and a small amount of office space. A rental agreement between UH and UHV for the continued use of this space should be in place by Fall Human Resources The current faculty and staff of the UHV nursing program who will be affected by the transfer have been identified. For faculty and staff moving to UH, the transition, which primarily involves the identification of appropriate cost centers and changes in PeopleSoft, will take place on September 1, For the UHV nursing employees who are not transitioning to UH, UHV will try to find other positions for these individual within UHV (i.e., efforts will be made to ensure no one will be terminated as a result of the transition). The UHV nursing program has three ongoing faculty searches; successful candidates will also transfer to UH. UHV faculty who transfer to UH will join the UH faculty and hold the same rank and tenure status as they did at UHV. Given that the School of Nursing will be required to manage a greater range of financial issues when the transition is complete, the nursing program should hire a UH department business administrator by the end of the Spring 2015 semester. 9. Contracts, Clinical Affiliations and Other Legal Issues. A complete listing of warranties and legal and educational agreements involving the UHV nursing program has been compiled and those that must be transferred to UH have been identified. A timetable has been developed that specifies when UH must rework individual agreements with contract/affiliation partners to ensure uninterrupted services. 10. Grants, Endowments, Scholarships and Special Funding The UHV nursing program is currently supported by numerous programmatic grants, scholarships and endowments. The funding programs that should move with the nursing program to UH have been identified and, where appropriate plans for working with donors regarding the potential transfer of funding programs to UH will be developed. The UHV nursing program is also currently supported by special line-item funding from the State of Texas. UHV has included a request to continue this funding stream in its Legislative Appropriations Request for the upcoming biennium. UH will include a similar request in its LAR for the subsequent biennium. 11. Library Resources To ensure that nursing faculty and students have access to all appropriate educational materials, the UH library has identified the library resources that will be required by the transition. Arrangements will be made to enable School of Nursing faculty and graduate students to also have access to the TMC library. The potential needs for future faculty are also being considered. Access to library material must be provided by the start of the Fall semester The UH library has already provided the UHV School of Nursing with letters documenting UH library support that are necessary to maintain accreditation for the nursing program. Page 4

9 5 12. Bookstore contracts UH is already in negotiations with the Barnes and Noble branch that is currently located on the Sugar Land campus to handle book requests associated with UH courses that are taught on the UHSL campus. Another goal of these negotiations is to establish an emergency book loan program for students attending classes at UHSL. In addition, strategies that will serve nursing students who are attending classes away from the UHSL campus (e.g., Victoria) are being developed. 13. Information Technology and Electronic Communications A UH UIT project manager has been designated to coordinate the transition of IT services from UHV to UH and to minimize disruptions to current services. The project manager will work with UHV nursing staff and faculty, as well as UHSL staff, to identify and develop strategies to: 1) integrate authentication processes for current user accounts and services, 2) migrate current content from files, websites, and lecture capture, 3) transition current and telephone communication services to the UH unified communications network, 4) integrate current application process with PeopleSoft and other UH academic processes, 5) migrate and enhance current software inventory to meet user needs. Integration of processes, migration of content and inventories, and transition of services will be completed by June It is likely that 2 additional IT staff will be required. 14. Accreditation of the UH Nursing Program and Licensure Issues The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) has been notified (July 2014) that the UHV nursing program is being transferred to UH. We have received verbal assurances that the accreditation of the nursing program will be maintained during the transfer to UH. However, a substantive change proposal must be submitted to CCNE in May The Texas Board of Nursing has also been notified about the transition of the nursing program to UH (July 2014). 15. Faculty Governance Guidelines outlining how the UHV nursing faculty will be integrated into the UH faculty governance system have been developed. Amendments to the UH Faculty Handbook and to the Constitution of the Faculty Senate that will accommodate the School of Nursing will be proposed for consideration in May The proposed School bylaws and the proposed student handbook for the School of Nursing will be submitted to the UH Provost for consideration in August UHV Alumni and Student Issues During the FY15 academic year, UHV nursing alumni will be informed of the transfer of the nursing program to UH and invited to become members of the UH Alumni Association. In August 2015, the Nursing Honor Society at UHV will be closed; current Page 5

10 6 members of the honor society will be given emeritus status, and a new chapter of the Nursing Honor Society will be established at UH. Representatives of the UHV nursing program have been invited to participate in discussions concerning potential changes in the graduation ceremonies at UH. Impact on UH In terms of human resources the transition of the nursing program has short- and longterm consequences. It is difficult to estimate the total number of staff hours that will eventually be devoted to the development and execution of the action plans required to transfer the nursing program to UH. However, to date a substantial number of faculty and staff at both UH and UHV have spent much time working on the logistics of the transfer. However, thus far these activities have been accomplished by re-directing the work efforts of faculty and staff from their normal duties to the transition effort. In the long-term, the nursing program transfer will require UH to invest substantial human resources in the School of Nursing. One of the key reasons for transferring the nursing program was to support the expansion of the program to meet current and growing workforce demands and to develop new doctoral level degree programs (e.g., DNP, Doctor of Nursing Practice, PhD in Nursing Science). It is anticipated that following the transition to UH the nursing program will need an additional 10 tenure track faculty lines over the following five years. As detailed in the SACS proforma, increases in student enrollment in existing degree programs will support four to five new faculty lines. However, until nursing enrollment goals are attained, UH will be required to provide supplemental support during this growth period. An additional five to six faculty will be required to develop the anticipated doctoral degree programs and a Tier 1 research program. It is anticipated that these new faculty lines will eventually be supported by the new professional and research related doctoral programs. But again, UH will be required to provide supplemental funding to the SON during this developmental period. The total estimated supplement funding required to support just the existing degree programs for the first five years of operation is approximately $2.2M. New support personnel will also be required by the transfer of the nursing program to UH. For instance, it is expected that the School of Nursing will need to hire a school business administrator to manage the expanded budgetary and financial issues that will occur as a result of the transfer from UHV (approximately $100K annually). In several cases, needed new personnel will also be utilized by other UH programs that will eventually be housed at UHSL. For example, the influx of UH programs to the Sugar Land campus will necessitate an increase in IT staff (the costs for the SON is estimated to be $120K annually). In addition, UH must establish student health services and counseling and psychological services at UHSL. Both of these services will be utilized by all UH programs taught at UHSL and in the case of the health and wellness services potentially by students attending Wharton County Junior College programs at UHSL. The Work Group is currently exploring potential ways to reduce the costs of providing these services at UHSL. In particular, it may be possible to partner with a private health care provider to establish a student health center on the Sugar Land campus. Page 6

11 7 Alternatively, the nursing program could establish a health service staffed by nurse practitioners. In addition to potential cost savings, a UH staffed facility could provide new educational opportunities for nursing students. Regardless, it is expected that the costs for additional student services will largely be offset by student fees. The expansion of library and learning resources required to support the addition of the School of Nursing to UH will result in recurring annual costs of approximately $120,000 per year. These costs will be mitigated in part by student fees charged to UH nursing students. However, the fact that students who transfer to UH from UHV will be paying tuition and fees equivalent to those of UHV students will require UH to provide supplemental funds until the transferring nursing students have graduated. There will also be facility costs with the transition of the nursing program to UH. In addition to the loss of fees paid by UHV for the use of the UHSL facilities, UH will begin paying the costs for leasing space in UHV and the Woodlands. The details of the lease arrangements with UHV are not known. Following the transition, the human resource costs associated with adding the nursing faculty and staff to the UH payroll is not expected to be significant. Similarly adding several hundred nursing students to the total UH enrollment is not likely to require expanding enrollment services personnel in a substantial manner. Attachments 1.

12 Attachment: E-1 8 Final Report of the University of Houston Sugar Land Task Force February 21, 2014 Overview In fall 2013, UH System Chancellor and University of Houston President Renu Khator announced plans to implement a major change in the delivery of off-campus instruction: to make the University of Houston the sole UHS institution delivering programs at the Sugar Land campus. To that end, the university is planning to expand or launch 22 programs in Sugar Land and relocate a large segment of its College of Technology to the campus (see Appendix I. New and Expanded University of Houston Degree Programs). As a first step in this process, the Chancellor/President appointed the University of Houston Sugar Land Task Force to examine the issues involved in such a major undertaking, in order to ensure that the best interests of students, the community, and the UH System were being served. Chaired by Welcome Wilson, Sr., former Chair of the UH System Board of Regents, the UH Sugar Land Task Force included leaders from the University of Houston System, Sugar Land, Fort Bend County, and Victoria communities (see Appendix II. University of Houston-Sugar Land Task Force Members). Over the past two months, the Task Force has developed the following recommendations to guide the planning and implementation of this initiative. Recommendations: In fall 2014, the UH System should begin implementing a multi-year plan (2-5 years) through which the University of Houston will become the exclusive provider of baccalaureate and graduate programs at the Sugar Land campus, consistent with the UHS Board of Regents decision to transfer campus administration to UH. In the implementation of this change, it is of great importance that no current student be left stranded, that no existing faculty contract be violated, and that the University of Houston-Victoria be furnished with adequate funds to carry out its important mission to become a destination university in the city of Victoria. Over the course of the implementation period, as the University of Houston expands program delivery in Sugar Land, UH-Victoria and UH-Clear Lake will incrementally cease program delivery at the campus and will have the opportunity to shift some of their programs to another UH System teaching center or deliver them fully online. The success of the UHV nursing program is highly dependent upon its facilities in Sugar Land. It is important that the nursing program at Sugar Land be expanded to include master s and doctoral degrees. It is also important that these programs continue to be conducted in metropolitan Houston near the Texas Medical Center. For these reasons, and consistent with the Sugar Land Task Force Nursing Subcommittee s recommendation, this Task Force recommends that the existing nursing program at Sugar Land be transferred to the University of Houston and made part of its newly organized UH Health Science Center. This does not preclude UHV continuing with certain nursing programs in Victoria or elsewhere. In addition to degree programs, the University of Houston should deliver select certificate programs at the Sugar Land campus to meet local workforce needs.

13 9 Suggestions for the Implementation Plan The changes envisioned in the recommendations above will require careful planning to ensure that student access, degree completion, enrollment and revenue are maintained and that the end result of this initiative constitutes an improvement in services for the students, universities, and communities involved. To achieve these ends, the UH Sugar Land Task Force recommends that the UH System include the following components in its Sugar Land implementation plan: 1. Transition Plan: The expansion of UH programs in Sugar Land and a corresponding transfer of some UH-Victoria and UH-Clear Lake programs to other locations or delivery modes must be timed and orchestrated in a way that provides continuity in course and program availability, faculty and staff resources, enrollment, and revenue. The transition plan should specify how and in what time-frame this will be accomplished. 2. Location/Delivery Mode Plan: The planned transition will require some level of renovation at the Sugar Land campus to accommodate incoming UH programs and faculty, as will the shift of some UHV programs to another location or mode of delivery (e.g., fully online). The location/delivery mode plan should identify and evaluate delivery options for UHV, as well as renovation needs at the Sugar Land campus. Board of Regents With the submission of this report, the work of this UH Sugar Land Task Force is complete. When approved or modified by the Board of Regents at its meeting on Wednesday, February 26, 2014, it is recommended that the work on a detailed implementation plan should begin immediately by the University of Houston System staff.
