Impact Statement

Thank you for your interest in and support of the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. We are deeply grateful to all of the students, faculty, staff, administrators, USF System representatives, and external partners who worked to make our new strategic plan, Focus on Quality 2020 a reality. We have developed a plan we can all be proud of that builds upon our strengths, maximizes our resources, deepens our purpose, and more fully engages us with our internal and external partners. Our plan is intentional, meaningful, and designed to make a significant impact. The plan outlines seven major focus areas:

  • Student Success
  • Campus Life
  • Intentional Enrollment Management
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Scholarly Activity
  • Community Engagement
  • Resources
Within those seven areas we have a number of well-defined strategies and measurable outcomes that will help us meet our goals. In addition, we believe the following will be the top ten transformational outcomes that will re-define our institution:
  • Recognition as a Carnegie Community-Engaged campus
  • Achievement and maintenance of national accreditations
  • Recognition by the Chronicle of High Education as a “Great College to Work For”
  • Receipt of at least one major, transformational gift
  • Establishment as the home of the USF NCAA Women’s Rowing Team
  • Establishment of space for student union
  • Establishment of housing options for students

Although the ability to reach all of our goals in five years depends on resource availability, we believe we have captured the best of what we have to offer as well as the vision of potential, and with the continued enthusiasm, support, and collective efforts of our internal and external stakeholders, we will be Unstoppable! 

We invite you to join us in our journey for the next five years as we continue to add value to our institution, the USF System, the State University System, and the larger community in which we live, work, learn, and play.

Programs
Description

Your investment in any amount supports the Annual Fund for each college.  Unrestricted gifts provide support where it is needed most, whether toward the operating budget or for unexpected needs or special projects. Unrestricted operating funds allow flexibility and development of a comprehensive academic program that will serve as a resource for institutional research, service, and teaching advances in the College of Business, College of Hospitality & Tourism Leadership, College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences, College of Science and Mathematics and the School of Education.  $10,000 per college / school per year adds significant opportunity to meet critical needs not funded through regular institutional channels.

Budget $40,000
Category Education, General/Other Educational Delivery
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults Males Females
Short Term Success

Unrestricted annual gifts are a top priority at USFSM. All gifts are immediately applied to the University’s areas of greatest need. This flexible funding allows administrators to address emerging needs and take advantage of unexpected opportunities as they arise.   Gifts to the Annual fund benefit every student, professor, staff member, and the community every day. 

Long Term Success

Successful Annual Fund development will be evidenced by increased opportunities for each college to support merit scholarships, faculty development, program enhancements, and emerging needs.

Program Success Monitoring

In order to continuously improve teaching and learning; scholarship, research, and innovation; and public service and community engagement, USF Sarasota-Manatee must align business activities to the vision and strategy of the organization and monitor organization performance against strategic goals.

 

Progress to success will be monitored and evaluated for three critical areas:

  1. Teaching & Learning
  2. Scholarship, Research & Innovation
  3. Public Service and Community Engagement 

Critical data to be evaluated include:

  • Enrollment, retention, and graduation rates.
  • Student career results
  • Engagement (local, regional, national, international)
  • Expansion of degree programs.
  • Gains in external funding from public and private grants and gifts for scholarship and program expansion.
Program Success Examples


 

The 1st cohort of National Kaohsiung University students from Taiwan arrived to USF Sarasota-Manatee on July 10, 2013. The 9 students from NKUHT will spend 10 months in Sarasota taking several courses, followed by an optional 5-month internship.

 

Four students from the College of Hospitality and Technology Leadership participated in a three-month initiative with Blake Medical Center to develop a plan to improve the hospital experience through the eyes of those in the hospitality industry. The result was a comprehensive, “Organizational Excellence Proposal” suggesting numerous improvements. Changes to the patient environment include invigorating color schemes, enhanced lighting & user-friendly furniture. Other suggestions focused on food quality, service and employee recognition.

 

These, among others, demonstrate the forward momentum created by the dean of the college, Dr. Cihan Cobanoglu.

Description
The USF Sarasota-Manatee is committed to provide the next generation of students the intellectual resources they need to compete in a fast-paced, evolving global society and the financial resources needed to achieve their educational goals. For many of our students, finances can become the sole factor in determining whether they will attend college and/or pursue an advanced degree. USF places among its highest priorities the establishment of privately funded scholarships. Unlike student loans, scholarship funds do not need to be repaid, reducing the financial burden many students face after graduation. The generosity of thousands of donors has helped generations of USFSM students realize their dream of a university degree. A gift of scholarship in any size serves as an investment in the future.
Budget $50,000

Short Term Success
Students will the decisions to attend USF Sarasota-Manatee if there is a promise to support tuition expenses and they have the option of living at home. A stronger freshmen class will increase demand for classes, for the benefit of all students on campus.
Long Term Success
Gifts of scholarship strengthen USF Sarasota-Manatee's ability to recruit the highest caliber students who fulfill both the academic and financial qualifications. USF Sarasota-Manatee's expansion to a four-year university will accelerate growth in the student population, increased course and program offerings, and maximizing campus utilization to serve as many local students as possible in our convenient, regional campus setting. The need for scholarship funding is greater now than it has ever been.
Program Success Monitoring
Program success for scholarship distribution can be measured by the number of students awarded scholarships over the previous year(s), the number and amount of new scholarship funds collected from public and private interests, and an increase in enrollments.  Additional data may be collected from surveys, interviews, and first-person narratives about scholarships and their impact on the academic careers of individuals.
Program Success Examples USFSM students have benefited greatly from the generosity of our donors.  Since 1998, USF Sarasota-Manatee has awarded more than 1.48 million dollars in scholarships to thousands of deserving students, including over $450,000 to students in the First Generation Program. 
Description

Endowments support a broad base of initiatives at USF Sarasota-Manatee.  Endowed funds may be created for scholarships, fellowships, chairs, research, professorships, lecture series, equipment, capital improvements and more.

Endowments preserve the donor’s original gift to the university in perpetuity, creating an enduring legacy throughout time.  The principal gift remains intact while earnings from the donor’s investment are used to support its purpose.

University Advancement works with donors to discover the best way to create an endowed fund that best suits their particular needs and wishes. Endowments can be established in the donor’s name, the name of their business, or in honor of someone important to the donor. Donors also can specify how they would like the income from the endowment to be used.

Budget $100,000
Category Education, General/Other Educational Programs
Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served Adults Families At-Risk Populations
Short Term Success
Endowing programs will help USFSM attract high caliber faculty and create strategically designed programs that benefit our students, the university and the community as a whole.
Long Term Success
Endowments are an important part of USFSM's goal to build and maintain a world-class faculty. They help attract and retain a diverse group of scholars who influence today's important public policy and academic debates and establish USF Sarasota-Manatee as a leader in higher education.
These chairs, professorships, and fellowships highlight the important role that scholarship and teaching play at USFSM. Possible only with the generous support of donors who value excellence in scholarship and want to help ensure that USFSM continues to maintain a renowned faculty, these endowed funds support teaching and research, challenging students to their full potential. Faculty members also care deeply about students' intellectual, social, emotional and physical development, guiding students to achieve their educational goals. Named chairs also shine the national spotlight on a scholar's work as well as the college where he or she is employed.
Program Success Monitoring
Success is measured by the number and size of the pool of endowments available to the university.
Program Success Examples USF Sarasota-Manatee currently holds more than $7,145,000 in endowed principal funds dedicated to scholarships, chairs, professorships, and infrastructure.
