    Task Force Focus

    The following questions are provided as a starting point for task force discussions and are not intended to limit the range of discussions.

        • How do we best prepare our graduates for life and work? How do we provide a comprehensive education for all students?
        • How do we provide the flexibility in education required in the future?
        • What opportunities will ensure a rich undergraduate experience inside and outside of classes (e.g., internships, research)?
        • Do we offer adequate and appropriate student support services for all students (e.g., online, out-of-state students)?
        • How do we improve students’ ability to achieve their educational goals efficiently?
        • How can we facilitate internal transfers and improve graduation rates?
        • What is our desired student profile (e.g., mix of in-state and out-of-state, qualifications)?
