Multiple proposals for reorganizing earth sciences at UA

About 75 proposals or white papers were submitted yesterday to the UA VP and Provost Meredith Hay [right] for the "transformation" process expected to lead to reorganizing programs, departments, and colleges to meet new budget realities. At least 9 of them are earth science related. The proposals were made public this afternoon on the Provost's website. I've compiled links to the 9, along with the contact person for each:

A campus-wide school devoted to earth and environmental science Malcolm K Hughes

Arid Lands Resource Sciences GIDP and the Transformation Process Stuart E. Marsh

College of Science and Engineering Joaquin Ruiz

Earth and Environment Consortium Lisa J Graumlich

Hydrology and Water Resources Thomas Meixner

Institute for Mineral Resources Mary Poulton

School of Geological, Atrmospheric, Hydrologic and Environmental Sciences (placeholder name) Karl W. Flessa

School of Soil, Water, Environment and Natural Resources Lisa J. Graumlich (through Eugene G. Sander)

School of Sustainability for Energy, Water, and Materials Prof. Glenn Schrader and Prof. Joe Simmons

The next phase involves reviewing and possibly combining some proposals before discussing them with proposers, department heads, and deans.
