A Message From Academic Affairs

This week we will gather to discuss our progress on AGES. At 11:30 Thursday in Olin Auditorium, Mark Vincent and Nancy Loitz will lead a discussion on our progress in a forum sponsored by the Faculty Senate. While we have many topics to discuss about our work together on AGES, the particular topics for this week's conversation are:  a) the Learning Community proposal introduced at the August Faculty Retreat; b) the sequence of courses in the first year; and c) the relationship of the G and D suffixes.

We have many signs of the progress we are making in AGES, and our work together is attracting attention, as I discussed in last week's Acknowledge.

Please take the time to view the following two attachments:

I look forward to our conversation.
