Academic Plan 2021-2026

Thank you to LA&PS community members for contributing ideas to the Academic Policy and Planning Committee (APPC) regarding the 2021-2026 Academic Plan. The Academic Plan reflects the priorities and principles that were shared with us in two online surveys, three public town halls, and 21 visits to the Schools, Departments and Colleges in LA&PS.

The Academic Policy & Planning Committee is proud to announce that the final draft of the Academic Plan was approved at faculty council on June 10.

The draft can be found in agenda package from the June 10 meeting. A final version will also soon be published here.
