Introduction The objective of the project charter is to implement a residency weekend at location Denver, CO for the University of the Cumberlands (UC). The Project charter helps in understanding and documenting the all required of the event and facilitates its accountability for choosing a new Denver, CO location. 2. Business Case The objective of this stakeholder is to implement a trial Residency Weekend to be held at a new location for the University of the Cumberlands (UC). The Residency Weekend will follow traditional hours for meetings: Friday 5pm – 10pm, Saturday 8am – 7:30pm and Sunday 8am – 1pm subsiding COVID-19 pandemic. UC will improve residency for the students to support their academic progress and enhance the self-service access to meet the institutional enrollment and mandatory requirements. 3. Project Scope The scope of the project charter includes implementation of the trial residency weekend at Denver, CO for UC in a satisfactory manner. A list of registered students, teachers and staff is to be implemented in a transparent and secured manner. A scope may includes but not limited to availability of resources such as facilities, class rooms, materials, instructors during the residency weekend, data with the students, travel and lodging implementation for the residency participants. Support to the participants will be provided during the complete student life cycle during the residency weekend from recruitment, admission, enrollment, stay, financial aid, billing, availability of the material and grading. The project scope shall also includes inclusion of study material along with the arrangement of conference rooms in Denver to be completed in the defined time duration. Since the residency is to happen in the month of September, the arrangements need to be done by the early August. There is about 5 months to prepare for lodging, arranging the travel as per the security considerations along with the requisite approval from the steering committee. The arrangements at hotel need to be made for accommodation for the students and the teachers. Advance amount should be paid to confirm the booking. The approval from steering committee shall take 30 days time. Post that, the students’ consent form is required which will take approximately 45-60 days. The arrangement with hotel and all the negotiation process needs to be completed in the remaining 45-60 days. The travel arrangement for the staff members, students and teachers should be done. 4. Team operating principles On-time delivery: The team will work together to achieve the end goal of making sure that the arrangements for the residency weekend are completed on time. Focused Cost Optimization: The focus will be on making sure that the consent has been taken from all the students and the cost optimization has been done to ensure that the arrangements are done within the defined cost. Project Charter for UC New Residency Proposal 3 Steering committee meetings and Approvals: Governance team members will be engaged on a timely basis. Approval from steering committee is the first step post which parallel processes would be run to ensure that even if there is a delay, there is an additional time frame of 15-20 days for completion of the project on time. Regular meetings would be conducted on a timely basis to get update on the project and understand the areas of concern. 5. Stakeholders The trial residency weekend will be held between September 24, 2021 to September 26, 2021. Traditional meeting hours will be followed: Friday 5pm – 10pm, Saturday 8am – 7:30pm and Sunday 8am – 1pm. At Denver, CO for UC, an arrangement for 250 students, 9 instructors and 3 support staff will be held. Over the weekend, travel and stay arrangements will be completed as a part of the project. Internal Stakeholders Internal Stakeholders of the project includes students, teachers and staff members of the support team. Project team will be the part of the internal stakeholders and they will be directly impacted by the performance of the project. Students and teachers are the part of the team which will be directly influenced by the project performance during the trial residency week. Students will be following the academic rules and regulations in order to avoid duplicative entries and complete the process in a secured manner. Students will have to be present during the residency weekend from first day to the end day. Support team will impact the project in a manner that they will ensure correct data entries without fail. They will be responsible for the residency material needed at the time of the project. The internal stakeholders will be impacted by the project if there is a delay in the project. The internal stakeholders are the priority stakeholders throughout the project across all stages of the project. External Stakeholders External Stakeholders of the project includes airlines, hotel for the stay and spot where classes will be held. Project sponsors will be directly impacted by the project budget including travel, lodging and other expenses. They will be approving of the location of the residency based on the budget and recommendations made in the project. Project sponsor will impact the project in a greater manner. They will be approving of the residency locations based on the budget and services provided to their level of satisfaction. Airline managers and hotel in-charge are external stakeholders and will make sure that arrangements for travel and lodging are made in a satisfactory manner. They need to ensure that that required amenities are present during the residency weekend. External stakeholders do not play an important role in the beginning of the project but they play an important role in the end of the project during the execution stage of the project. Thus the importance of the external stakeholders increases during the execution stage of the project. The external stakeholders do not make any impact during the detailing stage of the project. 4 Project Charter for UC New Residency Proposal Internal Stakeholders Impacted by Project Progress 1.

Risks & Risk Mitigation A risk in the project is that UC will be changing its documentation process in order to make it transparent which might take time in management of documents submitted by the participants. A mix of electronic and face to face activities will be held during the residency weekend which might require regular updates. Key resources at the time of need might not be available which can affect the residency process and thereby participants. Associates might not have adequate skills to perform the key functions. In order to mitigate the risk of the unavailability of the key resources, external stakeholders will be aligned to fill the resources in the time of need. Training will be given prior to the program to the associates so that they can very well understand and execute the project. Addition 2 staff members will be hired to fill the gap at the time of risks during the residency weekend. UC tech will be updated and existing hardware will be synchronized to function appropriately during the residency weekend.

Project Charter Budget Estimations Resources Needed Estimate Required Budget Marketing $5000 Resources and Working Hours Project Sponsor, 10 hours Staff members, 22 hours Justification towards Budget & Others Marketing is the major mandatory necessity for any business and the team and efforts that are to be placed by the team requires continues efforts to fulfill the project. Hence, an office space and conference rooms are required as a necessity. AV and Communication, $10,000 Staff members, 22 hours Communication plan and the requirement gathering is the utmost important thing for any project and that cannot be completed without resources and office spaces. More than 5-6 conference rooms are required for any kind of discussions.

The shipment costs are taken from FedEX shipment calculator. Travel & Hotel Rooms, $8,000 Staff members, 22 hours Teachers would be travelling from different states to teach and continued sessions will be applied to them and the rest is a mandatory part in every body’s life. The hotel rooms are mandatory for most of the teachers that travel long hours to teach. The hotel rooms must be allocated in accordance with the budget. The costs are calculated from Priceline.com bundle prices Flights+Hotels Refreshments, $5000 Focus Group Participants, 3 meals for 3 days As the teachers are allocated with the hotel rooms, the other teachers who are not allocated with the hotel rooms must be supplied with refreshments. A few teachers that are not supplied with the hotel rooms due to their shorter distance are also needed to be provided with refreshments. The cost for refreshments calculated based on average costs of nearby chain restaurants. Total = $30,000 Total = 120 hours 5 Rooms 10 Project Charter for UC New Residency Proposal 11. Preliminary line-item Budget The estimated for the budget are based on average stay arrangements in Denver and the travel and food charges per meal based on average spend. This is then added up to determine the total budget. Thus a bottom up approach has been used for budgeting.

Constraints The main constraints in carrying out this project include the timeframe of meeting all the requirements and formulating ways through which such activities can be carried out. Some of the basic provisions that are also seen to be the main constraints in this case is the capital allocation. The project team will find it difficult to fund the activities taking place during this period and what is supposed to be done. Travelling through these various places will need effective capital allocation. Moving through Phoenix, Williamsburg, Raleigh, Cheyenne and Madison will need critical review and other forms of time and capital investments. 13. Assumptions        Trial residency weekend at Denver, CO for UC will be implemented successfully based on the following assumptions: Adequate staffing will be made available to the project to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the residency weekend. Designated staff for the project is crucial and will be made available in a time of need. Adequate funding will be available for the project in the timely manner in order to support the project. Residency material will be made available for the residency participants for deployment during class lectures and procedures. All hotel price projections are based upon the average nightly price of 4start rated hotels in Denver. All airfare is given is the lowest airfare populating in google.com/flight Hardware and software systems at UC will be available in working condition. 14. Site Selection The selected site is determined to be as Denver, CO. The main objective to select this place is to implement a residency weekend session in this location for the University of the Cumberlands that will require teachers and students to attend the weekend sessions for the residency hours. The main reasons for selecting this location is Denver is near to most of the cities and has the biggest airport. Major airlines like Frontier, SouthWest, Delta have their airport hub over in Denver which also costs cheaper ticket fares. Another major point that is to be considered is that the location of this city is closer to most of the highly populated areas, and this can be maintained easily. For the people who stay in Denver, to attend any university will cost much as there are many students that have to travel. 15. Conclusion In order to manage the risks and resolve any issues during residency weekend, participants’ entries and documents will be clearly defined and documented. Each issue will be clearly named and defined in order to prioritize the process of residency and log issues for future residency weekends. Project issues will be specifically referred to the project sponsor for resolution and make trial residency weekend a success. 12 Project Charter for UC New Residency Proposal 16.
