Faltyn to Serve on Function Change and Mission Expansion Subcommittee

Goodwell, Okla. — Following the approval of a moratorium deferring consideration of potential changes in college and university function and mission through June 30, 2019, the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education has announced the formation of a subcommittee to develop recommendations and action items related to institution requests for function change and/or mission expansion for State Regents’ consideration.

Four State Regents will serve on this committee and Oklahoma Panhandle State University President Dr. Tim Faltyn has been named as one of nine campus presidents to serve as well.

Faltyn commented, “I’m honored to be a part of this working group. The policy that is produced will have a direct impact on Panhandle’s, both the university and the region, ability to grow and prosper.

I have faith in Regent Helm’s leadership. He has been an Oklahoma A&M Regent or an Oklahoma State Regent for almost all of my career in higher ed. I consider him a friend and a mentor and look forward to working with him.”

Regent Ronald H. White will chair the subcommittee, and Regent Joseph L. Parker, Jr. will serve as vice-chair. Regent Jay Helm will serve on the subcommittee as incoming chair of the State Regents. The fourth member will be the State Regents’ incoming Academic Affairs committee chair, whom will be appointed by Regent Helm.

Campus Presidents from Oklahoma State University, University of Oklahoma, Cameron University, University of Central Oklahoma, University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College, Rose State College, and Tulsa Community College will serve on the committee as well.

The committee will develop and review criteria, guidelines, and recommendations related to institutional functions and missions that support the continued advancement of higher education in Oklahoma.

Several chief academic officers from state system institutions have been invited to serve as non-voting academic resource members in order to share their knowledge and expertise with the subcommittee.
