Academic Mission Committee

Mandate

Prepare for Summer and Fall 2020; establish alternative instructional and research modes for FY21 and beyond; oversee all matters dealing with academic planning, policies and procedures, and resource allocation recommendations.

Committee Members

The Academic Mission Committee established two sub-committees as below:

Task Force 1: Preparation for Fall 20

Mandate

"The Task Force aims to provide contingency plans for the mode of instruction in the Fall 2020 semester. While we hope to move back to full-face-to-face instruction, there is a probability that we may have to stick to full online instruction. However, there are various models in between that we may consider. The task force aims at analyzing all possible options, determining the triggers to opt for any of the options, and evaluating the implications of each option/decision on our policies, procedures as well as on our different stakeholders."

  • Impact on teaching and learning, both from the faculty and student perspectives
