Academic Budget Request Packet

The College of Fine Arts (CFA) will continue to play a key role in building the University of
Florida's growing national and international reputation through creative research, teaching
and service in the college's respective professions and educational outreach.

As noted in the August 15, 2006 version of the UF Work Plan, "no university can aspire to
recognition as one of the country's great public universities without recognition as a leading
center of research and teaching in the arts and humanities." Exemplary visual and
performing arts programs are central to the mission and essential to the overall quality and
reputation of outstanding public Research I institutions.

I. Mission and Purpose of the Program
The College of Fine Arts offers both traditional liberal arts (BA) and professional
(BFA/BM/MFA) training in a wide array of arts disciplines. Additionally we work to
prepare teachers in art and music education and offer selected PhD programs (art
history, music, music education). The close relationship of forward-looking
interdisciplinary centers enhancing the CFA traditional arts curricula (digital media
and global connections, ethnomusicology, world dance, arts in medicine). Through
creative research and scholarship faculty members stretch many of the traditional
boundaries and develop new courses and programs for students in newly emerging

II. Goals and expected outcomes
With a new administration in the college, many of the goals are currently under
discussion and refinement. In the months ahead, the college will assess, reaffirm and
designate strategic directions and include baseline data in particular areas as
comparators-e.g. funding for professional development (current status and
reasonable goals for improvement); faculty workload equity and balance; external
grants and research funding; etc.

The College of Fine Arts offers limited access enrollment and is one of the colleges
that enhances the University's efforts to have a lower student/teacher ratio. It caps
enrollment in studio classes at all levels.

All programs, except dance, are accredited by professional discipline specific
associations. The CFA administrators work with these accrediting processes to
improve and revise curricula with faculty leadership. Dance has had an initial review
and is scheduled for its first accreditation site visit in 2007.

CFA 2007-08 Academic Budget Request

3/9/2007.4:21:20 PM

In the past year, there has been revamping and shifting of faculty positions in both art
and theatre to address the changing professional fields. Art has added a digital
training component for all studio art students, combined separate areas of
concentration into a new digital media area, and redefined vacant lines to hire two
new faculty members in this area. Another vacant line was shifted to hire additional
faculty in the burgeoning area of museum studies, which was started a few years ago
with only one full-time faculty member. Upon the advice of re-accreditation visitors
in theatre, the BFA and MFA in performance have been re-organized and a hire for a
replacement will focus on acting for the camera.

Over the next few years, the schools of Music and Art and Art History will be
scheduled for re-accreditation visits and these will be helpful in continued revision of
the curricula. Through two new spousal hires, Music will be able to strengthen the
music history area with an ethnomusicologist and 17th century specialist, which will
bolster the PhD program in preparation for the re-accreditation process.
Increase enrollment in MFA and PhD programs
Revitalize MA in Digital Arts and Sciences
Develop MFA in Dance and MA in Arts Administration
Offer the MM in Music Education in a summer format with an
online component beginning Summer 2008
Increase placements of graduates in strong arts educational and
professional institutions

Very heavy teaching loads in some areas have limited the time available to pursue
strong research agendas. In spite of this, many faculty members are very productive,
meeting and surpassing college standards for creative research.
Improve infrastructure support for research
Continue to encourage faculty grant applications
Complete a study of faculty workloads to determine the
necessary balance between research and teaching for individual
faculty. With this information, school directors may modify
work assignments to shift to larger teaching loads for those
with a limited research agenda and lighter teaching loads for
those with stronger research potential.
Provide consistent sabbatical funding to allow more eligible
faculty to take advantage of sabbaticals for research
Provide a stronger base of funding for faculty development for
travel to present work, at professional meetings and
performance/exhibition venues

CFA 2007-08 Academic Budget Request

3/9/2007.4:21:20 PM

A large number of faculty members are involved in service to their professional
associations serving as officers at the regional, national, and international level.
Fine Arts faculty and students add immensely to the quality of life in this university
community and beyond to national and international venues by providing hundreds of
performances, exhibitions, etc., that reach hundreds of thousands of people each year
and these performances now include the expanded reach of an intemet component.
Fine Arts faculty also renders valuable service to UF and the College through the
shared governance processes and committees.
SThrough greater resources continue to provide travel resources for
faculty to be involved at appropriate levels of their professional

The very nature of the college's work encompasses diversity and the college
consistently seeks that expression in all its aspects. Diversity of thought as expressed
through faculty creativity and research enriches the community from studio to gallery
to stage. Faculty maintains close ties to the Center for African Studies and Center for
Latin American Studies. Faculty research recognized internationally has gained
particular acclaim for African and South American work. The college's Center for
World Arts has a strong outreach effort to bring African and South American dance
and music to UF and K-12 students.

The MFA in performance has a high ratio of students of color and stage presentations
reflect this diversity aiding both the perception and reality of a diverse UF
community. Other programs in the college seek to model this success. One strategy
organized by minority faculty members has been recruitment through travel to
regional historically black colleges and universities to increase graduate student
diversity in all three units. Availability of scholarship dollars facilitates the
recruitment of a diverse student population. Increasing scholarship dollars is a
component of the capital campaign. In the area of searches all efforts have been
expended to ensure robust applicant pools. Through the shared governance process,
the college has reactivated the faculty Diversity Committee, which is setting goals for
future recruitment of students and faculty and addressing the climate for people of
color in the college.
Increase scholarship dollars
Work with diversity committee recommendations

This remains an underdeveloped area for the college. There has not been a
consistently strong tradition of fundraising. Locally, the Harn Museum and UF

CFA 2007-08 Academic Budget Request

3/9/2007.4:21:20 PM

Performing Arts attracted and secured major donors. Therefore, the college's efforts
will focus on national outreach to alumni and potential donors for the capital
campaign. A six month search for a new development officer is nearing conclusion.
With this key appointment in place a standard pace for the many aspects of
fundraising will resume.
Hire a new development officer.
Establish the capital campaign committee.
Establish the Friends of Theatre and Dance.

III. Strategic Fit

Fit with College's Strategic Plan
With a new administration, the college will develop a process during the coming
academic year for assessing and establishing strategic directions consistent with the
institutional and system strategic plans.

Fit with University's Strategic Work Plan and Board of Governors' Strategic
The College's strategic direction has and will continue to be guided by and support
the University of Florida's Strategic Plan and the Board of Governors' Strategic Plan.

As mentioned earlier, the Work Plan cites the importance of the teaching and research
of the arts. This includes the college's partnership with the New World School of the
Arts. Further, the college is committed to international and interdisciplinary priorities
of the university. The college's interdisciplinary centers are key ways to provide both
a mechanism and support structure to augment and bolster research and teaching.

IV. Program Achievements Top Five Achievements
1. Growth and quality of the graduate programs
During the last two years, with increased state funds, the college has added four new
fellowships and increased the level of all fellowships to make them more competitive.
For the 2007-08 recruiting cycle, the college was able to increase graduate assistant

The PhD programs in the School of Music have increased significantly in the last
three years growing from 19 in fall 2004 to 35 in fall 2006. The established PhD in
Art History established in May 2001 has six students. The first student was
admitted in 2002. The MFA and MM programs continue at or near capacity for
faculty workloads as well. Only in a few studio areas is there room for growth. In
1998, the college established the MA in Museum Studies- the terminal degree in the
profession and hired its first Museum Studies faculty in 2001. This program now
has 18 graduate students.

College of Fine Arts' graduates are employed in universities, colleges, and a
range of cultural institutions and professional companies. Some own and operate

4. Curriculum changes and enhancements
In the past three years, the School of Art and Art History established
the MINT studio and other new courses to provide professional
experience to Graphic Design students; they also combined programs
and revised curriculum to offer the BFA and MFA in Digital Media.
The School of Theatre and Dance has revised the BFA and MFA
performance curriculum and developed additional courses for the
design curriculum. Theatre and Dance is preparing for accreditation of
the BFA in Dance. The School of Music is reviewing curricular
programs anticipating NASM review in two years. There have been
no significant changes in the past three years however, under
consideration is a Summer Master's in Music Education. The Digital
Worlds Institute has offered four DIG Courses in 2006-07
(Foundations of Digital Culture, Digital Design and Visualization,
Interdisciplinary Research Seminar (using Second Life) and 3D
Modeling and Animation) and has facilitated a special
transdisciplinary class for the Center for Arts in Healthcare Research
& Education entitled: Culture, Health and the Arts: Sub-Saharan
Africa and the United States.

5. Development of interdisciplinary centers to enhance curriculum, research,
and outreach of CFA programs
In addition to the enhancement of the curriculum through world arts,
Center for World Arts co-director, Joan Frosch, has created an
acclaimed feature-length documentary Movement (R)evolution Africa,
which premiered at Lincoln Center in New York and will open the
acclaimed Julidans Festival in Amsterdam in April 2007. CAHRE is
attracting international attention, particularly with the development of
the AIM for Africa, Arts in Healthcare Summer Intensive, and Traffic
Art and Dance Exchange/Sickle Cell Disease Research Initiative. The
Digital Worlds Institute continues its strategic work with a wide range
of units at UF and has developed and filed patents for its
NetroNomeTM and the Integrated Situational Awareness System
(ISASTM), which shows promise to address pressing security issues
and the University is lobbying both state and federal legislatures for
additional funding. The Center for Arts and Public Policy is enjoying
a revitalization and will be instrumental in hosting a major lecture
series in 2007-08 and developing a MA in Arts Administration. The
University Galleries continue to enhance both the visual arts and art
history curriculum, while also reaching out to other units on campus to
collaborate in creating truly interdisciplinary exhibitions for UF and
the greater Alachua County region.

Program strategies for future achievements
The College has worked for many years with maximum return on minimal funding by
the University. This has been recognized by the new senior administration and the
increase in new funding to the College has been and will continue to be a great help
in addressing unmet faculty and other resource needs.

In spite of these new funds, there remain several serious resource issues that will need
to be addressed through increased attention to fundraising, encouragement of faculty
in garnering more external grants and awards, some additional special requests for
state funding, and continued strategic decisions for internal resource reallocation to
advance the greater college goals.

V. Program Challenges

Top five impediments
1. Recruiting and retaining high quality faculty, including addressing
market equity issues. An initial analysis of CFA faculty salaries with the
OSU comparators revealed a differential in excess of $250,000 setting
the stage for market equity reviews and requests in the college, far
surpassing college resources to respond.
2. Addressing unmet infrastructure needs
a. Operating dollars have not increased for more than 13 years
b. Facility and space needs
i. Highest priority for the college remains a recital hall and
extensive renovation of the Music building.
ii. There are several space needs that have been identified in
the School of Art and Art History, including modernization
of the University Gallery as the "face" of the school,

CFA 2007-08 Academic Budget Request

3/9/2007.4:21:20 PM

adding visibility and aesthetic appeal from the outside.
UF's Physical Plant Division estimated $1 million dollars
for this basic renovation.
iii. The interdisciplinary centers need both space and staff.
c. Staffing needs; as programs have grown, attention has been given
to addressing faculty needs, but increased demands by more
students and more areas requires more staff.
3. Equipment needs-the college continues to rely on both traditional arts
technologies (pianos, instruments, studios, traditional stages, etc.) as well
as high and new technology to meet the college's programmatic needs.
4. Lack of competitive scholarships/assistantships at both the undergraduate
and graduate level
5. Lack of a strong tradition in fundraising, including external grants and

Program strategies for dealing with top five impediments
1. Increasing external support through fundraising efforts and grant
awards through 1) re-assignment of a staff member to a grants
specialist position 2) providing leadership at the administrative level
through the full time appointment of an Associate Dean for
Administrative Affairs and Research Programs 3) scheduling annual
external funding workshops in the college for faculty and 4)
supporting staff training.
2. Realigning the allocation of new funds for college priorities to include
market equity and retention along with recruitment of faculty.
3. Working with the senior administration to build a strong case for more
flexible use of material and supplies (lab) fees paid by students.
Through increased flexibility CFA could address some of both the
traditional and high technology demands in the college's programs as
is the case in many states. The many restrictions on fee usage hampers
the delivery of the education sought by students.
4. The college is proposing that the Office of Academic Affairs provides
recurring funding for two basic areas to benefit the undergraduate
education being provided.
a. $100,000 in recurring funds for the rental of the WARPhaus. The
SAAH foundation program in studio art which is built around
group work in an open space remains a hallmark of distinction for
the visual arts curriculum. Unlike many other programs that have
opportunities to garner funds through a strong donor base or
indirect costs in grants for teaching space rental, the traditional fine
arts programs have difficulty generating external dollars.
Spending over one-third of the Dean's start-up package for rental
fees for teaching space curtails the college's flexibility to address
longstanding unmet needs.
b. $125,000 for student music ensembles. The Student Government
funding formula funding ensembles in the School of Music for

CFA 2007-08 Academic Budget Request

3/9/2007.4:21:20 PM

more than 30 years has changed, requiring the SOM to seek other
sources of revenue to support these groups. Originally, SG funded
ensembles as one of the many "student organizations" on campus
that register with the Office of Student Involvement. This included
a 5% annual funding increase to accommodate inflation. However,
in 2005, SG took exception to the fact that UF ensembles were
taken for credit, each student paid a M&S Fee, and in many cases
auditioned for attendance. Therefore, SG determined that music
ensembles did not qualify as organizations that fell under the
jurisdiction of the Director of Student Activities and determined to
phase out its support over three years. The progressive phase out
was to allow time for the SOM to try to obtain other sources of
funding for music ensemble support. Beginning this year SOM
received an $8 per student ticket subsidy for each ensemble
concert. The ticket subsidy allowed UF students to attend without
cost. The distribution resulted in approximately $56,000 compared
to about $90,000 in 2005-06. In an attempt to reduce the income
gap SOM initiated an admission charge for the general public.
Ticket sales have been modest and exact figures will not be
available until the close of the fiscal year but with the inability of
the public to find parking for University Auditorium performances,
general admission will permanently be limited. This request
reflects SOM's anticipated growth in both choral ensembles and
string groups as a part of an overall school enrollment goal,
inflation and more opportunities for performing in the Phillips
Center, an exceptional teaching/learning facility. The expenses
incurred by the ensembles include both in- and out-of-state travel,
equipment purchases, visiting artists, advertising, rental of
University Auditorium and Phillips Performing Arts Center, labor
costs associated with concert logistics that include stage setup,
ticket sales, etc.

The ensembles provide performance opportunities for more than
400 students from throughout the University, both music majors
and non-majors.

VI. Assessment and Improvement Actions

Strategy for assessing program goals
The following strategies will allow the college to assess progress on program goals:
Academic Learning Compacts
review of faculty in annual evaluations
development of a database to more effectively track student and
alumni accomplishments

CFA 2007-08 Academic Budget Request

3/9/2007.4:21:20 PM

development of baseline data to gather more effective information
about faculty research and grants, to be reported on the Cumulative
Faculty Report
continued re-accreditation of all programs
development of strategic directions with annual update and revision
annual reports of interdisciplinary centers and standing committees of
the college

VII. Academic culture

Mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students
One of the primary ways that students are mentored within the college is in the
accessibility to faculty in studio courses across all disciplines. Students have the
opportunity to study with faculty in small studio classes and to know the faculty in
settings outside the classroom, such as at exhibition openings and receptions, during
the rehearsals for performances, working on stage and set designs. This is unique to
the arts and affords the visual and performing arts student a special opportunity.
Additionally, the student to advisor ratio in the college is very low and undergraduate
students are carefully monitored as to their progress.

Intellectual life of the program department
Units in the college contribute to the intellectual life of the entire university in a
variety of ways. Most visible is the artistic production made available for the entire
campus and surrounding community through exhibitions and performances.
Additionally, units host a regular series of guest artists and speakers, some of whom
are on campus for extended residencies. Faculty and units within the college host
significant national and international conferences and symposia, such as New
Directions in Contemporary Art, Spring 2006, African Studies Association's
Triennial Symposium on African Art, Spring 2007, first International Symposium on
Music Assessment Conference, Spring 2007, Electro-Acoustic Music Festival, 16th
Annual, Spring 2007. All enhance the intellectual life of the entire campus and are
completely documented through the Cumulative Faculty Report. Highlights are
included in the Appendix. Further, the college employs technology to extend the
impact of and economies for its work.

Partnerships across the UF
Many of the college's faculty are affiliated with centers across campus and actively
work to engage with faculty in other disciplines both within the college and in other
colleges at UF. The Appendix contains a list of these.

Professional service to discipline
See the Appendix for a listing of the many different professional associations of the
