Summit I of the USD Academic Plan happened on November 10. In this Summit the Team of Teams met with the Provost, Associate Provosts and Deans to discuss preliminary ideas for establishing academic priorities in five areas:  1) Student Experience; 2) Teaching, Learning and Innovation; 3) Enrollment, Programs and Schools; 4) Research and Intellectual Outputs; 5) Academic Reputation.  Each team coordinates ideas in one area, presenting relevant strengths at the university and the top external factors that should be considered in defining our future academic priorities. These teams offered initial priorities and pending questions that will be further developed in green papers that we expect to be able to share in a few weeks with the larger community of faculty and relevant university stakeholders.
