4 Implementation Plan

5 Section 2: The Implementation Plan LSUA has a BS in Business Administration (CIP Code ) with a Concentration in Management Information Systems (CIP Code 11.10). Also, under development is a Concentration in Computer Science/Information Systems (CIP Code ) in the existing BS in Mathematics (CIP Code ). Only one additional faculty member for the Department of Business Administration who is qualified to teach computer programming languages is needed in order to offer all the required management information and computer science courses for both concentrations. Consequently, LSUA would utilize its WISE funds to Hire an additional MIS/Computer Science faculty member, Provide scholarships to qualified students pursuing one or the other of the two concentrations, and Remodel and equip an existing computer lab for use by the students/faculty in the two concentrations. The required match of $39, for the WISE funding was approved by the LSUA Foundation, August 28, 2014, from the Howard M. and Eloise F. Mulder Charitable Legacy. This money, which has already been deposited into the LSU Foundation, is to be distributed to LSUA over the next three years for use by the Department of Business Administration to assist in the cost of obtaining accreditation from the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). These matching funds are to be used primarily for hiring an additional professor in the Department of Business Administration. Two new professors in Business Administration along with the second Eminent Scholar Chair, who is joining the LSUA faculty in January 2015, should provide the Department of Business Administration with the critical mass of qualified faculty needed to meet the AACSB Faculty Qualifications and Engagement Standard necessary for accreditation. AACSB accreditation will make the Concentration in Management Information Systems even more valuable for degree completers. LSUA graduates from the Concentrations in Management Information Systems and Computer Science/Information Systems will be prepared to meet workforce needs in both central Louisiana and the entire state in the Computer and Information Science Areas. Additionally, depending on the concentration, these graduates will have the background knowledge to collaborate with workers in two additional areas of workforce need, Business Management or Mathematics and Statistics. WISE funds will be administered by Dr. Barbara Hatfield, Provost, Dr. Haywood Joiner, Interim Chair of the Department Business Administration, and Dr. Nathan Ponder, Chair of the Department of Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

7 September 22, 2014 Dr. Kerry Davidson Deputy Commissioner for Sponsored Programs Louisiana Board of Regents 1201Third Street Baton Rouge, LA RE: Match for WISE Funds Dear Dr. Davidson: For LSUA, the 20% required match for $195,207 in WISE funds is $39, LSUA has allocated $360,000 to cover this required match through a gift from the Howard.and Eloise Mulder Trust. The LSUA Foundation Board approved this amount of money for use by the LSUA Department of Business Administration at its August 28, 2014 meeting. It is substantially more than 100% of the required matching contribution and LSUA already has it available. If additional Information is needed, please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, G. Daniel Howard, Ph.D., CGFM, CFRE Chancellor

8 Credential-granting Programs

9 Section 4: Credential-granting Programs a. Degree, title of Program, Description, and CIP Code The immediate plan for the WISE funds is as follows: Strengthen the Management Information Systems Concentration (CIP Code 11.10) to the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (CIP Code ) Introduce a Computer Science/Information Systems Concentration (CIP Code ) to the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (CIP Code ) For these two CIP Codes the short/long term needs are roughly 200 and 140 completers, respectively. b. High-priority Field Both of the concentrations are in high-priority fields. c. Actions i. Addition/Alteration of Classes The following courses are to be added to the curriculum: CSCI 2350 Computer Science I, CSCI 2352 Computer Science II, and MATH 3259 Discrete Structures. ii. Addition of Faculty LSUA replaced its lone full time computer management information systems faculty member who retired summer 2014 with Dr. Long Li, an experienced assistant professor of computer management information systems. Dr. Li has a Ph.D. in Computer Information Systems from Virginia Commonwealth University. Instructor of Mathematics Tanya Lueder is in her second year of Louisiana Tech University s Ph.D. program in Computational Analysis and Modeling. She will be certified to teach computer science by fall LSUA proposes to use $83,000 in WISE funds to hire a full time tenure track faculty member with the Ph.D. in computer management information systems and/or computer science.

10 iii. Equipment, Renovations, or other Capital investment LSUA proposes to use $52,207 in WISE funds to equip Room 130 in Chambers Hall as a computer management information systems work room. The funds are to be used to purchase software and 12 desktop computers. In addition, a portion of the funds are to be dedicated to the replacement of worn out carpet with vinyl composite tile. These renovations and equipment additions will allow LSUA to establish a state-of-the-art workroom for the computer management information systems/computer science curriculum. d. Delivery Method Most of the coursework will be traditional, though some courses will be offered as hybrids or 100% online. Most LSUA faculty are trained to offer both traditional and online instruction, and all new faculty are hired with the understanding that they may be assigned at least one online class to teach. e. Previous Attempts to Implement Plan The curriculum for the management information systems concentration to the BS in Business Administration was put in place several years ago. Inadequate staffing stymied attempts to offer a sufficient number of upper level courses in the concentration. The program has thus not been able to complete students with the concentration. Since spring 2014, the university has granted a full time mathematics instructor a one course release in her teaching load to pursue a Ph.D. in Computational Analysis and Modeling. This has allowed the instructor to make significant progress toward certification to teach computer science classes that are in the new computer science/information systems concentration to the BS in Mathematics. By investing WISE funds in a new professor in CMIS/CS, the university will be able to offer the two concentrations. The revenue generated by increasing enrollment at LSUA, will allow the university to absorb the new salary in its operating budget in years subsequent to WISE funding. f.

12 Research Productivity

13 Section 5: Research Productivity a. Primary Department for Research LSUA is a teaching institution, however, 20% of a faculty member s annual evaluation is based on his/her Scholarly Activities. For the WISE Funds the Primary Department for Research will be the Department of Business Administration. This Department is working toward accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) so the research responsibilities of the faculty in this department are guided by the AACSB Standard 10 Faculty Qualifications to be both academically and professionally qualified and must maintain faculty competence through intellectual contributions, professional development, or practice. b. Actions Taken to Meet WISE Fund Goals i. Description of Credentials of Faculty to Be Hired One faculty member will be hired with WISE Funds. This person must have a PhD in computer management information systems and/or computer science from an AACSB accredited college of business and be able to teach database, networking system analysis, and programming classes. ii. iii. iv. Equipment, Renovations and Other Capital Investment Required LSUA proposes to use $52,207 in WISE funds to equip Room 130 in Chambers Hall as a computer management information systems work room. The funds will be used to purchase software and 12 desktop computers. In addition, a portion of the funds will be dedicated to the replacement of worn out carpet with vinyl composite tile. These renovations and equipment additions will allow LSUA to establish a state of the art workroom for the computer management information systems/computer science curriculum. Anticipated Costs The anticipated cost to hire a new professor in computer science and/or computer management information systems is $83,000. Expected Outcomes The expectation is that the new faculty member in Business Administration will be able to work with the Department of Mathematics and Physical Sciences to teach programming courses needed for both the Concentration in Management Information Systems and the Concentration in Computer Science/Information Systems. In this capacity, the new faculty member may work with the two existing faculty to publish in scholarly journals, present at conferences, and engage undergraduate students in research.

14 Aid Programs

15 Section 6: Aid Programs a. Financial Assistance Program and Budget of the Program Currently there are no financial assistance funds directed specifically toward increasing the enrollment in the BS in Business Administration with a Concentration in Management Information Systems or the BS in Mathematics with a Concentration in Computer Science/Information Systems. The Budgets for the two departments, Business Administration and Mathematics and Physical Sciences for the past four years are presented in the table below: Department of Business Administration Department of Mathematics & Physical Sciences Annual Budget AY 2013/2014 AY 2012/2013 AY 2011/2012 $442,661 $394,210 $454,448 $634,812 $632,493 $741,098 b. Number and Amount LSUA is proposing to spend a total of $60,000 in WISE funds for scholarships. Twelve $5,000 scholarships will be proffered with the recipients receiving $1,250 per year for four years. The awards will be competitive with evidence for likelihood of completing the concentration being the primary basis for receiving the scholarships. As the program grows, additional funding for scholarships will be pursued through additional WISE funding and/or the LSUA Foundation. c. Expected Outcome The expected outcome is that LSUA will produce its first graduates as early as spring 2018 and increase each the number of graduates each year thereafter as shown in the Completers chart below. These will be graduates who can be employed immediately to meet the Louisiana Workforce Development needs in Computer and Information Science and, depending on the concentration, can provide leadership and expertise in the areas of Business Management and/or Applied Mathematics and Statistics.

19 Section 8: Outcome Anticipated Outcomes & Timeframe As shown in the Completers chart below, LSUA expects to have at least seven graduates with either a BS Mathematics or a BS Business Administration with a Concentration in Computer Science/Information Systems or Management Information Systems as early as spring This number should continue to grow annually. Furthermore, the expectation is that all seven of these graduates will be employed in Louisiana. Completers Degree Program AY AY AY AY B.S. in Bus. Admin. with CMIS Concentration B.S. in Math with CS/IS Concentration Totals Additionally, LSUA expects to have AACSB Accreditation for its Department of Business Administration by fall The new faculty hire whose salary is provided through WISE funding should by spring 2017 have students engaged in undergraduate research projects with 3-4 presenting at student research conferences annually. For the new WISE faculty hire to remain professionally qualified in the Department of Business Administration he/she should have published at least two articles in referred journals by fall 2020.

20 Accreditation & Approvals

21 Section 9: Accreditation & Approvals Required Approvals Initially, LSUA will not need any approvals by the LSU Board of Supervisors, Louisiana Board of Regents, or the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOS). The Concentration is Management Information Systems already exists in the BS in Business Administration. The Concentration in Computer Science/Information Systems is developed and must go through the campus approval processes to begin January Once the university has sufficient numbers of students to sustain a stand-alone degree in Management Information Systems and/or Computer Science, LSUA will submit a Letter of Intent to develop a new degree to the LSU Board of Supervisors and the Louisiana Board of Regents. LSUA has SACSCOC accreditation to offer bachelor s degrees so no additional SACSCOC approvals are required. Estimated Costs There are no additional costs associated directly related to accreditation or approvals required for the LSUA WISE proposal. Costs associated with AACSB accreditation for the Department of Business are already included in the institution s operating budget.
