Innovation6. Faculty should be thoroughly involved in developing and designing future innovative academic programs.
We are enthusiastic about the Regent’s inclusion of the planning criterion: “An orientation to the future – pioneering, innovative, fresh”. We also support the President’s decision to designate $1million from the FY 05 budget for innovative academic programs. This initial investment should be continued in subsequent years.
Faculty should be actively involved in conceiving, designing and selecting those innovative academic programs that will be recommended for investment to the Board of Regents.
