Academic Affairs is working toward a comprehensive plan for developing, supporting, delivering, and rewarding Distance Learning at EKU.
An EKU Faculty Panel, comprised of faculty members from each college and the EKU Libraries who are experienced in Distance Learning, has been formed to represent faculty’s issues and input into our model.
Work is underway for the development of the 2010-11 budget. In the coming weeks, the Financial Planning Council will be reviewing tuition models, enrollment projections, and state-level decisions affecting state appropriations to project a Fiscal Year 2010-11 institutional operating budget. Budget forums are currently being offered to the University community.
The Strategic Planning Council has focused this semester on collecting data and gathering University input to inform the new 2011-2015 University Strategic Plan. SPC has held focus groups with students, faculty, staff, in Richmond and at the extended campuses, as well as with community leaders and EKU administrators.
Dr. Terry Holliday, Commissioner for the Kentucky Department of Education, visited EKU with his wife, Denise, on Wednesday, October 28. Commissioner Holliday toured the Model Laboratory School and met individually with President Whitlock and with Executive Vice President Moberly.
The office of Quality Enhancement Programs (QEP) will be coordinating a showcase, entitled A Celebration of Critical & Creative Thinking and Communication, to honor and celebrate our campus-wide efforts to improve student learning with the University’s first-ever Quality Enhancement Plan.
In June EKU was invited by the New York Times to contribute to a calendar series that began in 2005. The Times, in collaboration with the City University of New York (CUNY) and the LaGuardia and Wagner Archives on public higher education sought images that represent the work of public colleges and universities.
