Initiated in January 2017, a campuswide task force studied current practices for onboarding new students, including communication and programming procedures. Subcommittees examined all new student populations -- undergraduate, graduate, professional (Vet Med), transfer and distance ed/nondegree students. Last October, project teams took a deeper dive into specific areas of the onboarding process to develop recommendations with input from students, faculty and staff.
The steering committee compiled the teams' recommendations in its report to Harmon and Wickert. The report identified two priority areas:
-- Consistent communications and content development for a digital repository of resources
-- Continued curriculum development and coordination
An implementation team, with subcommittees focused on the two priority areas, will be formed as the project moves forward.
