Top Indiana University administrators say a long-term efficiency initiative is unlikely to result in faculty or staff downsizing.  

The project, part of the university’s Bicentennial Strategic Plan, is called the Presidential Initiative to Reduce Administrative Barriers to Academic Excellence.

Vice President for Research Fred Cate says large organizations tend to accumulate layers of administrative red tape that can make it difficult to work efficiently.

A committee, made up of seven people including Cate, will spend the next few years on the project.
