Presidential Task Force: Sustaining the Academic Priorities at StFX 2013-2018

With the goal of ensuring we remain a sustainable, high quality institution with a promising future, in June 2013 the Board of Governors, responding to an earlier motion by faculty members serving on the Board,  approved the Terms of Reference for the Presidential Task Force: Sustaining the Academic Priorities at StFX.  This representative Task Force was directed with undertaking a program prioritization process which would lead to a comprehensive examination of all of StFX's programs and services.  The Task Force was given the responsibility for identifying priorities to support the strategic direction for StFX as a nationally recognized, high quality, mainly undergraduate institution with graduate programs in key strategic areas.   This university-wide process involved faculty, administration, staff and students in analyzing and prioritizing all programs and services. In turn, the prioritization process identifies programs and services that are functioning effectively, those that would benefit from enhancement and those that could be restructured or to be discontinued to free resources for more important initiatives.

 

The Report of the Presidential Task Force was released on October 6, 2014 and is available for download.
