Working Group on Environment, Resources and Related Programs

In May 2011 (CPAD #74) the Dean announced the establishment of the Working Group on Environment, Resources and Related Programs. The membership of the Working Group is listed below.

The Working Group is charged with reviewing the Faculty of Arts & Science activities in the area of environment and resources and to make recommendations for the Faculty of Arts & Science. The committee is broadly-based and representative of the units involved in programs and research in the area of environment and resources and includes faculty and students. The committee will consult with units that are currently involved in delivering such programs.

The specific charge of the Working Group is:

  1. To summarize and review the existing Arts & Science undergraduate and graduate programs in the general area of environment and resources.
  2. To identify strengths and weaknesses of the current Faculty unit structures, considering the academic plans of the units and cognate disciplines.
  3. To make recommendations (either organizational or otherwise) that would strengthen environment and natural resources programs overall, identifying specific outcomes and measures of progress toward academic goals and ensure that the resources we place into initiatives on the environment and resources achieve the greatest scholarly and educational impact.
