About the Academic Plan
The first Academic Plan reflects our commitment to the academic excellence required to foster a highly trained and educated workforce. As we complete the fourth year of the Academic Plan and reflect on the achievements and efforts of the APAGs we are pleased to announce the extension of the plan through 2020. By extending the plan our new Provost, Dr. Ben Cecil, will be able to lead the development on a new Academic Plan in conjunction of the next Strategic Plan.
