PCAR - Howard University Uniqueness
May 01, 2010 03:28 PM PDT
The Presidential Commission on Academic Renewal discusses and reflects on the uniqueness of Howard University and the education it provides to ensure that the University’s uniqueness is not lost during the program review and recommendation phases of the Commission’s work. To achieve this goal, selected members of the Commission prepared statements regarding the University’s uniqueness and presented them at the Commission’s February 19, 2010 plenary meeting.
The University’s academic renewal process is built around a presidentially appointed Commission on Academic Renewal that is composed predominantly of faculty, but has representation from every University stakeholder group. The Presidential Commission on Academic Renewal (PCAR) membership also includes nationally recognized external academic leaders and other experts. Dr. Alvin Thornton serves as chair of the Commission, and Dr. Eve Higginbotham, Senior Vice President for Health Sciences, serves as the vice-chair of the Commission. A professional staff, coordinated by Dr. Ronyelle Ricard, provides support for the Commission. The Commission will review each of the University’s academic programs, using an evaluation framework, and submit a report to President Sidney Ribeau. The program review process will be open and transparent and the Commission will draw on the collective wisdom of the campus community through active, ongoing communication and substantive engagement before making final recommendations to the President. The engagement of faculty, students, staff, alumni and other supporters of the University with the academic renewal process will be facilitated through an interactive web-site, periodic reports, meetings with academic departments and schools and colleges, and town hall meetings.
