of Fayetteville State University upon his installation as Chancellor

To Chancellor James A. Anderson, You share a legacy of one hundred and forty-two years and ten chief executive officers at FSU, spanning the 19th, 20th, and now the 21st century. You share the idealism and tenacity of Harris, the hopes of Williams, the intellect of Chesnutt and Seabrook, the expansionism of Smith and Lyons, the academic program growth of Jones, the new era of excellence of Hackley, the communiversity and Bronco Pride of McLeod, the dreams of Bryan, and the interim stewardship of Fairley, Benson, and Hackley. And now in this 21st century, The Future has called you, James A. Anderson, to lead FSU. As members of your Cabinet, we share your commitment to a collective vision for FSU, to shared leadership, to team building, collaboration, diversity, community outreach, globalization, student empowerment, academic excellence, and to continuous improvement. We know that with your transformational leadership you will carry FSU to greatness. We, the members of the Cabinet, Salute you, Chancellor James A. Anderson The FUTURE is now… “Res non verba.”

The Installation of

Chancellor James A. Anderson

Friday, April 3, 2009

1:00 p.m.

The Felton J. Capel Arena

Fayetteville State University

Fayetteville, North Carolina

“I have a belief in those who call the city of Fayetteville home, who call Cumberland County home, who call North Carolina home, and who call Fayetteville State University home. Over the rainbow is our destiny, the realization of our vision, the confirmation of our legacy. Join me in this journey. I will not fail you, we will not fail each other and we will continue to establish Fayetteville State University as one of the great institutions in this nation.” It was truly a humbling experience on April 3, 2009 to be installed as the eleventh chief executive officer of Fayetteville State University. The welcoming presence of so many students, faculty, friends, and guests reinforced my commitment to the legacy of those leaders who preceded me and to our greater vision for the future. President Erskine Bowles presided over the installation, and two of my mentors- Reverend Peter Donahue, President of Villanova University and Chancellor James Oblinger of North Carolina State University spoke. Other participants included Hannah Gage, Chair of the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina; the Honorable Patricia Timmons-Goodson, Associate Justice North Carolina State Supreme Court; James Jefferson, President FSU Student Government Association, and Trustee; and Gloria Moore Carter, Chair, FSU Board of Trustees. With the powerful musical renditions by the FSU choir and band, I knew that I was “Home.” The installation ceremony was the highlight of three days of activities which included an ecumenical unity service, choir concert, faculty/student symposium, and a health walk. The combination of the reception hosted by Mayor Anthony Chavonne and Mrs. Joanne Chavonne following the installation, and the powerful oratory of Dr. Algeania Freeman, ‘70 on Founder’s Day, April 5, confirmed James A. Anderson, as the official Chancellor of FSU.


Office of the Chancellor Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Planning Through team building and collaboration with administrators, faculty, staff and students, as well as the community, FSU has laid the foundation for shaping our response to the call of the future. We are no longer preparing students to simply obtain college degrees but to procure competitive degrees for the 21st Century as reflected in our mission statement and the recommendations of the UNC Tomorrow Commission. As such, I have asked for FSU’s commitment to six strategic priorities: • FSU will be a university of choice in North Carolina and the nation and will garner a reputation for innovation and excellence in teaching, learning, research and technology. • FSU will be a leader in the economic transformation of the southeastern region of North Carolina. • FSU will be an intellectual and cultural center that sustains a climate of excellence. • FSU will distinguish itself in the preparation of leaders in all disciplinary fields and co-curricular programs. Our students will achieve and compete in the global economy. • FSU will increase access to education in North Carolina through expanded partnerships and collaborative efforts. • FSU will demonstrate fiscal integrity and resourcefulness and will develop a blueprint for economic sustainability.


F AY E T T E V I L L E S TAT E U N I V E R S I T Y • A N N U A L R E P O R T 2 0 0 8 - 2 0 0 9

A major step towards making these priorities operational has been the development of FSU’s Strategic Plan 2009-2014 by the Strategic Planning Committee. This committee included twenty-eight representatives from the FSU Board of Trustees, administrators, faculty, staff, and students. The plan will be updated on an annual basis and will maintain our commitment to our core values of student success and the pursuit of excellence, shared governance, global responsibility, and collaboration. It will enable the university to carry out its primary mission of providing students with the highest quality learning experiences that will produce global citizens and leaders as change agents for shaping the future of the State.

UNC Tomorrow Responses Phase II and Revised Mission Statement Responding to the UNC Tomorrow recommendations, we examined various policies and procedures, academic programs, and our mission statement in determining how FSU will increase its capacity to meet the needs of southeastern North Carolina. Policies on faculty evaluation, promotion and tenure, and retention of faculty were revised to reflect the changing needs of FSU. Eleven new academic programs are being considered as well as a number of certificate programs to meet workforce needs. Non-productive and low enrollment programs were eliminated as part of our commitment to accountability. Looking to its future, FSU’s mission statement was revised to reflect changes in degree programs and outreach activities which had already occurred, as well as those which were being proposed. The revised Mission Statement for FSU is as follows:

Fayetteville State University is a public comprehensive regional university that promotes the educational, social, cultural, and economic transformation of southeastern North Carolina and beyond. The primary mission of FSU is to provide students with the highest quality learning experiences that will produce global citizens and leaders as change agents for shaping the future of the state. Awarding degrees at the baccalaureate and master’s levels, and the doctorate in educational leadership, FSU offers programs in teacher education, the arts and sciences, health professions, business and economics, and unique and emerging fields. FSU is an institution of opportunity and diversity. Committed to excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, and service, the university extends its services and programs to the community, including the military, and other educational institutions throughout North Carolina, the nation, and the world.

SACS Reaccreditation We are also in the process of a comprehensive assessment of institutional effectiveness with regard to the operation of all aspects of the university. An on-campus visit by a team from the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC) will be conducted in the spring of 2011. Our SACS Liaison Office, led by Dr. Marion Gillis-Olion, has been established and we have begun the process

Community Engagement and BRAC Strengthening community ties by building new coalitions, establishing new partnerships, and solidifying relationships with community agencies has been a major thrust for the university. The university has strengthened ties with national funding agencies, state and federal legislators, city officials, charitable organizations, and still serves as part of the leadership team for the Greater Fayetteville Futures II Project. Faculty and staff engagement enabled FSU to sign memorandums of understanding with E.E. Smith High School, and partnership agreements with Fayetteville Technical Community College and UNC Pembroke. The community embraced the Chancellor’s Speakers Series, which adopted a thematic approach for inquiry during a year of political activism, featuring Roland Martin and Michael Steele in October, and Donna Brazile in November. The university has strengthened its partnership with both the Arts Council and the Fayetteville Symphony. FSU has positioned itself to take the leadership role in BRAC initiatives for the southeastern region of North Carolina. BRAC RTF (Base Realignment and Closure-Regional Task Force) was formed among 11 contiguous county governments including Cumberland County, and the 72 municipalities in the BRAC RTF region. The members of this organization, which includes FSU, are planning and preparing for the BRAC transfer and its impact on the region as related to education, workforce and economic development, housing, and transportation. FSU will be the lead institution in the establishment of the Center for Defense and Homeland Security, which will be a major collaborative effort with the U.S. Department of Defense, Fayetteville Technical Community College and other area community colleges, some member UNC institutions, BRAC RTF, and Fort Bragg. 6

Chancellor for a Day Congruent with our mission to develop students as leaders, we launched the “Chancellor for a Day Program” in October of 2008 to enable students to gain a better understanding of the day-to-day operations of the University by shadowing the Chancellor for one day. Jasmine Aljuwani, a junior elementary education major from Charlotte, was the first student selected to serve on December 4, 2008; Matthew Wynne, a senior social science education major from Fayetteville, served on February 4, 2009; and Yikang Bai, a graduate student and Fulbright Scholar from Shandong University, China, served on April 15, 2009. All students stated that they

had gained a greater understanding of the complexities of the administration of the University, and as Bai noted, “Chancellor for a Day also makes me realize that the sound operation and management of a university requires the positive attitude and hard work of every faculty member and staff.”

Issues Issues related to the Nursing program and the state of our fiscal affairs have been of some concern for us. As we seek to produce excellence in all academic programs, the B.S. in Nursing has been temporarily suspended to make program improvements and to focus on the RN-BSN program. Budget adjustments, of a more than 7% reversion by the state, resulted in a hiring freeze, faculty and staff reductions, and cessation of expenditures for supplies, travel, and services. Additionally there was a .5% statewide reduction of wages for all employees. Audit findings in business and finance for 200708 have been reduced from 14 to 2.


“I am deeply grateful for the advice, counsel, and sound judgment that are exhibited by our Board of Trustees in support of the strategic direction of the university… and I am proud of the efforts of my executive team and cabinet who continue to manage effectively in difficult times because of their commitment to excellence and to FSU.”

Administrative Divisions Chief of Staff and Human Resources Attracting and retaining highly qualified productive personnel, and providing professional development for both staff and faculty are essential for producing the best possible learning environment for our students. There were 961 employees in 2007-08 and 1,000 in 2008-09, of which 441 were instructional. The largest increase for 2008-09 was in the clerical category, up from 153 to 188. Of the 441 teaching faculty, 255 were full-time and 186 part-time. For full-time faculty members, 80% hold the doctorate or first professional degree. Diversity of the full time faculty is Black 42%, White 38%, Asian 16% and others 4%. Personnel activities involving faculty and staff included: • Career banding overview training was provided for over 300 managers, supervisors and employees. 100% of SPA employees were banded and informed of their new banded position titles and levels. The positions of all employees have been verified in PMIS and Banner. • There were 536 employees who attended 30 workshops covering 17 topics which included Grievance Policy, Stress Management, Budgeting and Savings, Time and Leave, Recruitment and Selection, and Performance Management. • All basic policies governing employees and forms to be used for personnel matters can now be accessed from the Human Resources website.

Business and Finance Despite the 7% budget reduction for 2008-09, the Division of Business and Finance has contributed significantly to improving the overall campus environment. Efficiency, accountability, and sustainability, accompanied by improvements in safety, improvement in student services, maintenance of campus buildings, and campus beautification have helped FSU to maintain fiscal integrity this year. • The UNC Financial Improvement and Transformation Project (UNC FIT), which was kicked off at FSU in December 2008, has already improved establishing accounts, billing accounts, and paying out of accounts in Contracts and Grants, Financial Aid, and General Accounting. • The number of audit findings for 2007-08 was reduced from 14 to 2. • Public safety was improved with the implementation of “Shots Fired” – Response to Active Shooter Training: employment of a Director of Emergency Management, Environmental Health, and Safety; and the installation of video surveillance in academic buildings.

“Senior officers at colleges and universities need to make difficult choices and trade-offs so that our institutions will grow, thrive and excel- not just for the next five years- but for the next 100. The unprecedented economic challenges that confront us are too significant.”

• Strides made in sustainability included: the replacement of florescent lights with energy efficient lamps; the purchase of twelve green electric powered utility vehicles; expansion of the Campus Single Stream Recycling Program; establishment of the student organization the FSU Green Team; became a certified Green Campus with Sustainable Sandhills; and incorporated sustainability as a priority in the FSU Strategic Plan. • 12 out of 18 of the higher education bond projects for construction, renovation, and repair have been completed. Construction on the new nursing building began in July 2009.

Ground was broken on the new Southeastern North Carolina Nursing Education and Research Center in June 2008. The Center is scheduled to open in 2010.

FSU teams excelled in golf, won five Divisional championships, and garnered national recognition for some athletes. • The most successful athletic program at FSU for 2008-09 was the golf team. The team won both the Western and Eastern Division titles. The team took home a fourth consecutive Division II title at the 23rd PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship in Port St. Lucie, Fl. Head Coach Raymond McDougal was named the CIAA and the East/Atlantic Super Region Coach of the Year.

“FSU is on the cusp of becoming a culture of integrity, excellence, engagement, commitment, and innovation. As we evolve we must stay attentive to the needs of our students, our faculty, our community partners, and to the global marketplace.” The Division of Development and University Relations made its greatest strides in conservation by saving nearly $100,000 in cost by switching from postal service to email for contact with alumni and friends. A record of $43,890 was reached with contributions to the State Employees Combined Campaign for 2008-09. •e  Notice, our monthly e-newsletter, was sent to approximately 9,372 alumni of the University. Twenty-four eBlasts resulted in nearly 224,928 contacts from July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009. • As an alternative to snail mail, via the US Postal service, the use of email has saved a gross estimated amount of $94,468.76 for fiscal year 2008-09. • The use of On-Line communities such as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and Ting has produced 5,272 contacts this year. • The State Employees Combined Campaign raised a record of $43,890 with 479 donors. • Marketing expanded its coordination efforts by working with 303 projects on campus. • FSU received $1,811,720 in its fund raising campaigns for 2008-09 with 1, l24 donors.
