Academic Affairs and Research

Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities Planning Group

Charge for Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities Planning Group

From the Statewide Academic Council summary of April 7, 2009, item VI

"The Statewide Academic Council (SAC) reaffirmed its support for a system wide group comprised of up to three individuals from each MAU to discuss a variety of questions and issues related to: the educational attributes (broadly construed) UA graduates should be able to demonstrate; how the arts, humanities and social sciences might intersect with UA budget priorities, what UA graduates should know in regard to citizenship, leadership qualities and other intellectual and behavioral outcomes of education. The issues being discussed are also addressed in the summaries of prior SAC meetings. Nominations for the committee are to be made to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. It is expected the committee will keep SAC apprised of its work."
