Academic Affairs Task Forces

Four task forces were initiated during 2010 to explore key areas identified as top priorities for Academic Affairs.  For 2012-2013, task forces 2, 3 & 4 will evolve into advisory committees; whereas, the workload committee will continue its work and a complementary committee will commence work on professional education.

 Each task force was originally charged with the following:

  • Delineate and clearly articulate the desired outcomes for the year
  • Develop a process and timeline for the work group’s activity
  • Develop a list of individuals or groups who might serve as consultants for the work group
  • Develop a list of data needs or other information or research required to carry out the work
