Strategic Planning Policy and Programmatic Assessments Seamless Movement of Students & Faculty
Team members: Jean Barness, Pam Humphrey, Redmond Humphrey, Tim Hunt, Mari Molseed, Holly Streeter, Kathy Wenthold, and Suzanne James (chair)
Six key programmatic priorities must be addressed to facilitate seamless movement across the University. These are listed below, and specific related issues that need to be taken into account when addressing each priority are listed in bulleted format following each priority. These are followed by timeline estimations, action assignments, and identified resource requirements.
In some instances, there are different undergraduate degrees for the same major for the EU, International and RU. This needs to be changed to accomplish seamless movement. To accomplish this we recommend:
Benchmarking to determine the standard practice in the disciplines or professions where EU/RU/International degrees are different.
Conferring the same degree in the EU, International and RU to fit the standard practice.
Grandfathering currently enrolled students into the designated degree.
Timeline: Implementation time of 1-3 years Action Assignment: The registrar’s office will take the lead with a cross- functional inter-departmental team. Resource requirements: No additional resources will be required.
Several EU, International and RU majors are currently different. We recommend that the university conduct an academic review of EU, International and RU majors and work to align them where feasible.
