Academic Affairs Faculty Forums
Welcome to the Academic Affairs Faculty Forum website
In year three of the Blue Sky Project, the focus is on integrating the plan’s strategies and goals into the organizational structure of the university. Just as the Blue Sky Strategic Plan was developed through an inclusive process, integration will emerge through collaboration. Over the course of the academic year, the Provost’s office, in collaboration with the Faculty Senate leadership, will hold a series of Academic Affairs Faculty Forums. The forums are designed to create a venue for meaningful sharing of ideas about important initiatives in Academic Affairs. Collaboration between the faculty and administration of the university is essential if we are to advance toward our strategic goals. The forums are one venue for this collaboration. This website is designed to extend the collaboration beyond the public meeting. After each forum, we will post relevant materials and create a space where faculty members can submit reactions, comments or questions generated by the forum.
There are three Academic Affairs Faculty Forums scheduled for the 2013-2014 academic year. The dates, times, and topics for the forums are listed below.
