Task Forces and Work Groups



As needed, various ad hoc task forces and workgroups will be appointed by the President, responsible for studying planning issues. Membership on such entities will be determined by the President, with appropriate consultation, and may be drawn from various constituencies both on and off campus. 

 

Strategic Focus Advisory Council (SFAC)
will serve in an advisory capacity to the President regarding the coordination, progress, and outcomes of the strategic focusing process. Its membership includes the coordinators of communication and of institutional research for the strategic focusing process, the chairs of various workgroups, and other appropriate representation. 

 

Mission Progress Review Workgroup (MPR) will review progress that the university has made in achieving its liberal arts mission, assess its competitive strengths and weaknesses, and analyze external and internal factors that present challenges and opportunities as the university seeks to enhance its distinctiveness and distinction as a public liberal art university.  Its work products will include a white paper that presents the results of their review and any related recommendations. 

 

Total Student Learning Experience Workgroup (TSE)
will engage the university community in conversations about its fundamental educational values and its aspirational goals with respect to the total student learning experience, that is, the educational experience that our students share in common regardless of their major.  This workgroup will identify those special attributes or features of the total student learning experience that Georgia College seeks to be known for, admired and valued.  Its work product will be a white paper consisting of a statement of fundamental educational values and a comparative analysis of potential aspirational goals for the total student learning experience with respect to factors such as

  1. potential for gaining broad support within the university community

  2. potential for capitalizing on existing strengths

  3. potential for adding significant value to the total undergraduate learning experience

  4. potential for external recognition as exemplary

  5. potential for sustainability

 

Academic Programs Distinction Workgroup (APD)
Four college-based Academic Programs Distinction (APD) workgroups will engage faculty in conversations about academic distinction within the colleges.  A fifth APD workgroup with representation from each college will focus on academic distinction that crosses college boundaries.  The purpose of these conversations is to identify academic programs, program clusters, or program themes within colleges or across colleges that are best positioned to enhance the university's national visibility, academic reputation and competitiveness. The APD's work product will consist of white papers that analyze the comparative advantages of academic program distinction proposals using factors such as

  1. centrality to mission

  2. potential for capitalizing on existing strengths

  3. potential for gaining broad faculty support

  4. potential for external recognition as exemplary

  5. potential for sustainability
