Academic Steering Committee

About the Committee

The Academic Plan process is being driven by the work of the Academic Steering Committee, comprised of individuals who represent various College voices and perspectives. Members of the Academic Steering Committee have been working diligently to complete both internal and external engagement sessions in addition to the distribution and collection of feedback received in response to faculty and student consultations, surveys, and community feedback.
