Committees and Taskforces

The Division of Student Affairs has created working groups to address pertinent issues in a timely and efficient manner. A call for working group suggestions is made at the start of each semester. Proposals are carefully considered for timeliness and connections to the Academic Strategic Compass and the Division's mission, vision, and values. Each working group is to address its respective charge and recommend specific divisional initiatives, programs, activities and/or services for its attainment.

For fall 2012 the Division of Student Affairs is sponsoring two Division-wide working groups. Partners external to the Division have been invited to participate on each working group as appropriate.
