Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ #2) on Human Resources Development
(HRD) Program Transition
By H. Martin Lancaster
Accompanying this message, you will find a list of additional questions with responses on the HRD Program transition. The list contains those questions that arose during or since the July 23rd HRD Transition Information Session held on the NCIH, that were not previously addressed in the printed materials mailed to colleges (http://www.ncccs.cc.nc.us/Business_and_Industry/human_re.htm). All transition planning takes into account the 42% reduction in HRD funding for the 2001- 2002 program year, which we are instructed to act in accordance with given that the budget cut is contained in the Governor’s, Senate, and House budget proposals. As has been indicated previously, colleges must in turn plan, staff and operate their programs taking into account a 42% cut of their previous year allocation, and the policy changes made to the Human Resources Development program at the July meeting of the State Board of Community Colleges. Please continue to relay your questions to us. We are striving to be as responsive as possible, and to assist colleges during this transition period so as to maximize instruction and services.
