Annual Future of Academic Affairs Forum

The Future of Academic Affairs Forum is an annual opportunity for the Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer to share updates, plans and strategic opportunities for Academic Affairs. The event itself may change in format each year, however the goal of this initiative is to continue transparent communication about Academic Affairs with individuals working in Academic Affairs units and the campus community as a whole.
