Self-study recommendations still sought

By W. David Conn, self-study director

Spectrum Volume 20 Issue 03 - September 11, 1997

The Academic Agenda-Implementation Plan for the Update to the University Plan (recently presented to the Board of Visitors) indicates that recommendations from the current self-study will be incorporated, as appropriate, into future policies and practices at Virginia Tech.

These recommendations address ways in which the university might enhance the learning environment--with particular attention to the use of information technology--during the next five to 10 years. Proposed recommendations are contained in the draft report that is now available on-line at www.vt.edu:10021/admin/provost/selfstudy.

Faculty and staff members and students can influence their final wording by commenting on this draft report--by e-mail to selfstudy@vt.edu, by campus mail to the Self-Study Office (0155), or in-person at the two remaining open forums: Monday, Sept. 15, from noon-1:30 p.m. in 1045 Pamplin, and Wednesday, Sept. 17, from 8-9:30 a.m. in Squires Brush Mountain Room A. The forums are sponsored jointly by the Faculty and Staff senates. Since the self-study is a very important university activity, supervisors are requested to encourage employees to attend.
