  • Mon., Sept. 17: WG 1

SFU’s senate approved a three-item mandate for the Phase 2 Task Force:
  • Examine the overall academic unit configuration.
  • Analyze the structural academic building blocks.
  • Explore ways to enhance interdisciplinary innovation in the future.

The task force hopes to forward its final recommendations to the senate by Nov. 30, 2007. To see copies of the working group reports visit www.sfu.ca/vpacademic/Committees_TaskForces/Ad_Hoc_Committees/Phase2_TF/WG_Documents.html
