Academic Planning Task Force (2012-2013)


At the May 28, 2013 Senate meeting the Senate agreed:

1) That the Senate Academic Planning Taskforce be placed on hiatus for the 2013-14 academic year;

2) That SORC be tasked with conducting a review of the mandate of the SAPTF, including, but not limited to, consultation with Senate, SCAD and the Office of the Provost; and

3) That SORC provide its recommendations for the future of the SAPTF no later than the 2014 March Senate meeting. 


The Task Force, using the consultation process established by the 2010-2011 APTF (including but not limited to sponsoring a series of widely accessible town-hall meetings to address specific key issues, and the use of an interactive website) shall consider, as recommended by the 2010-2011 Academic Planning Task Force, the issues of:

  1. virtualization and online learning, and
  2. faculty renewal as a starting point.

The Academic Planning Task Force shall submit its Report, including recommendations and observations concerning the implementation of previous recommendations, to Senate for approval before the May meeting of the Senate.

In order to ensure the continuous cycle of Planning, Implementation, and Monitoring of the Academic Plan endorsed by Senate, the APTF shall also recommend a new planning issue or set of issues to be investigated by the task force of the subsequent year.
