Please find attached our second comment on academic planning, and in particular, feedback on implications of the draft University Academic Plan for ongoing planning processes at UNB. As with our document yesterday, we encourage you to use our analysis to continue to contribute to the academic planning exercise with the goal of creating a meaningful, manageable and visionary approach to academic planning at UNB. We have asked members of the APC and AP&R committees to consider our analysis, and we encourage you, in all of your roles in the collegium, to evaluate these statements on process and either add to them or comment on them as the academic planning exercise continues to unfold. The Fredericton APC will not meet again until November 6, the Saint John AP&R will not meet until November 10, and the joint Saint John/Fredericton committee will not meet until November 13. In our view, we must continue to engage in this process.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.
