University of Guelph Provost's White Paper | Office of the Provost | University of Guelph - 0 views

  • This white paper is an examination of that mission, and an inquiry into what the Guelph undergraduate learning experience is and could be. It is not a critique of program content—that is the realm of departmental policy, or a program or curricular review. It is instead a high-level attempt to re-imagine how the University structures and manifests that learning experience. More than anything else it is a vision-level statement of what we might need to do, as an institution, to maintain the leadership position in undergraduate education and innovation that we have enjoyed in the recent past.
