Dreaming Big: What Should UPEI Be?

Thu, Mar 23, 2017 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Atlantic Veterinary College - Lecture Theatre A

A campus-wide discussion for students and faculty on the theme of "Dreaming Big: What Should UPEI Be?" will be held on Thursday, March 23, 3:00-5:00, in Lecture Theatre A in the Atlantic Veterinary College. The discussion is sponsored by the Senate Committee for the Enhancement of Teaching (SCENT) and the Faculty Development Office (FDO) and is open to all students and faculty. This event is the culmination of SCENT's year-long focus on "What is University For?" and "Whom is University For?"

The session will begin with two-minute presentations by a panel that includes three students from different faculties and three Deans or their representatives. All those present will then explore this theme in small groups and propose ideas and initiatives concerning what UPEI should be now and in the years ahead. The afternoon will conclude with the groups sharing their ideas with everyone present.

SCENT and the FDO will follow up this meeting by presenting the ideas and proposals to the President of UPEI and other senior administrators and to the campus community through appropriate channels.

Please register by Thursday, March 16th by emailing Gerald at fdo@upei.ca – but you are also welcome to attend if you don't register but find you have time on the day itself!
