The draft reports recommending a strategic plan to guide GW for the next five years are now available on line for questions, concerns, and suggestions. While the site is open for feedback anytime during the spring semester, Provost Blake urges review by March 6th, which will give the four committees time to consider all feedback before finalizing their recommendations in May for the Board of Trustees.

Explicit support for Community Engaged Scholarship is relevant for all four committees: high-impact research, high quality undergraduate experience, attracting and retaining world-class faculty, and a distinguished and distinctive graduate education.

While the Nashman Center and several Nashman Faculty Affiliates have submitted feedback on the draft reports, it is important that these committees realize how many GW faculty consider community engagement a valuable aspect of their research, teaching, and other scholarly work. Please take a moment to share your perspective.
