Students First initiative kicks off with six-week assessment of support systems, structure, processes, and technology
As we begin the new fiscal year, our work continues to Reimagine Henderson to work for all students. We are launching our Students First initiative the week of June 27 with a focus on all of our administrative structures and supports aligned to the outcomes of our re-engineered academic program.
Students First will focus our energies on improving processes that guide our fiscal integrity, student success outcomes—including enrollment, persistence and completion—and finally, our allocation of instruction to support student success. We will enhance overall administrative effectiveness and efficiencies as a part of our overall conversion to the Banner System. Our process will identify critical gaps in staffing, training, and structure to make our work more productive and enjoyable.

Furloughs will end July 1. This change will be effective with July 15 paychecks. We are projected to end the fiscal year with $3.7-$5 million in cash, which will support summer payroll and help the university transition into the fall semester.

Dear Members of the Campus Community,
As we work toward next steps of our financial exigency process, I am sharing an overview of our progress and challenges, further defining decision-making metrics and tools, and providing a timeline of actions needed to build a sustainable, student success-driven model for Henderson State University.
As communicated in the Academic Performance and Program Viability document, decisions concerning academic programs will be based on four primary metrics:
- Net cost basis of delivery and overall net revenue production
- Unit-based cost of instruction defined at the seat level
- Student success rates with weighted priority for degree completion
- Alignment to community-based needs and 21st century durable skills
Today, I want to provide access to dashboards and additional context for the first three metrics that are being utilized to evaluate academic programs in the financial exigency process.
