Message from Carolyn Watters
Vice-President (Academic) and Provost
Academic planning includes both the short and long terms. Of course, the short term is easier to imagine. Nonetheless it is imperative that we envision the future of our university and its role.
This initiative is an opportunity for us, as a community, to think broadly about credentials, programs and pedagogy in the context of known and, as yet, unknown disruptions, technological and societal.
Engaging in a broad consultative process allows us to identify opportunities that will position Dalhousie as a leader in the next generation of higher education.
Message from Tom Traves
Academic renewal and innovation are critical for any university’s long-term success. To that end, we are launching a consultative initiative to look at the changing landscape of higher education.
Fundamentally, we need to ask ourselves what we imagine a university education will look like in a decade or so and then we must identify the areas where we should introduce changes that will position us for continuing leadership.
I eagerly invite your fresh thinking on this vital topic.
