1. Education Innovation
The goal of this plan is educational excellence and innovation, emphasizing active learning and new ways to think about both the teacher and the classroom and taking into account projections of undergraduate population growth. The plan rests on emerging evidence and promising trends in the science of teaching and learning, and a renewed focus on outcome metrics of educational quality. A key pillar is the proposal of an entity to transform the campus into an educational leader that innovates and embraces teaching practices that benefit our diverse and cherished student population.
