Appendix A. Baseline Measures for UTCM


D. Human Resources

Human Resources Goal:

An increased number of students, faculty, and staff who are attracted to and substantively involved in the undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs of the Center.

D.1. Baseline Measures

See Appendix A for Human Resources Baseline Measures

D.2. Human Resources Program Outcome

At the conclusion of the grant, UTCM will have been directly responsible for an increase in the number of graduates prepared to enter the transportation workforce.  In addition, the research opportunities provided by the grant will have attracted faculty and staff to UTCM’s research program. Because the focus areas of UTCM are so closely aligned with USDOT research priorities, the efforts of the faculty, staff, and students working in these areas will result in not just a positive impact on the state of practice in these areas through the research results, but also trained professionals ready to continue making an impact in these critical areas after graduation.

D.3. Planned Activities

To increase the number of professionals ready to positively impact mobility issues in the workforce, UTCM will engage in a number of activities.

D.4. Performance Indicators

One of the anticipated synergies of the UTCM and SWUTC is the benefit of SWUTC’s experience in collecting and documenting the information needed for performance indicators. This relationship will be utilized to the fullest in meeting the report requirements for UTCM’s grant.
