  • Maintaining quality programs in face of fiscal issues was a plenary theme. Competition from online, for-profit Universities. National concern.Move of universities to more online, more hybrid programming. Online programming through a third pary company – Think SEARS KENMORE????ART – Stanford has moved agressively to make Art and Creativity an inescapable part of the UG experience. Courses, co-curricular activities, expansion of diverse music troupes, artists in residence, stunning facilitiesEvolution – David Sloan. Introductory Evolution for Everybody course through graduate courses in with evolution as central theme. Science, yes, but also humanities – Nature of Religion. Certificate Program. National EvoSconsortiuum 13 other schools and Univ – NSFSustainability – Greg Chase SDSU - SUSTAINABILITY is responsibility of the University, not just a program or a class. Curriculum themes, Operations, Research Collaborations, Engagement with Community. Courses across curriculum, leveraging strength of faculty in all areas. Zemsky - Access Quality Cost – Issues of reduced funding even as we need quality higher ed more. Societal expectations never higher. Online, for profits encroaching. How can we provide paths to success?Urged us to think differently about how we educate. Are we engaging our students in active ways? How can we bring more faculty in contact with students, especially in lower division? Called for connections in the curriculum. Smorgasboard approach – who likes it? Faculty and Students! But, this does not provide clear paths to well articulated outcomes. Transform our role from Servers in a cafeteria line to Guides in the learning path towards degree attainment.
