Charge:

The Committee on Academic Reorganization is charged to review the current structure of academic affairs and to recommend a new structure to the President through a report that addresses the following:

1.    What organizational structure for academic affairs will strengthen the overall educational
        program, streamline decision-making, and improve organizational effectiveness?

2.    How can the centrality of Arts and Sciences and General Studies be enhanced through
       reorganization?

3.    Should the College add new schools such as education, communication, allied health,
       law, . . . ?

4.    How can the importance of international programming and the significance of technology
       be enhanced through reorganization?

5.    How can the roles and responsibilities of other Vice Presidents (Student Life, Enrollment
       Management, Business & Finance, Institutional Advancement) better support the central
       academic mission?

This review should be conducted during the fall semester with a report to the President by
December 1.

The report will advise the President in his responsibility of determining the organizational structure of the College.
