Academic Master Plan (AMP)

The Academic Master Plan will be a five-year plan that advances the priorities of the institution consistent with its mission and goals. The plan will cover three broad areas: curriculum, teaching, and students. Both aspirational and grounded in the realities of higher education, the plan will articulate goals and outcomes to help achieve a vision about where the institution will be in five years in the three areas indicated above.

The AMP Steering Committee will guide the planning process; it will oversee the three working groups each assigned to one of the three broad areas.

Developing an Academic Master Plan is tied to one of the Middle States evaluations team's recommendations from the site visit; the recommendation was endorsed by the Middle States Commission. The AMP will mark an important milestone in the college's history. It will help inform the Facilities Master Plan and Integrated Enrollment Management Plan, also endorsed by the Middle States Commission.
