All-CALS meeting, 3 p.m. Thursday at WID. On the table: A roadmap for the college’s future

This is an important week for the CALS community. Friday marks the end of the comment period for the draft CALS strategic plan. The plan (see links below or at the strategic planning website)—will set the course for the college in the years to come. It will inform decisions about which lines of study we undertake, what kinds of experts we hire, how and what we teach our students, and how we meet the needs of our stakeholders. It will also help guide very difficult decisions about areas in which we can no longer afford to invest.

Please take time this week to read the planning documents carefully and give your feedback.
