President Dobbins formed the Academic Visionary Committee to work with the Southeast community in formulating ideas and recommendations for new or enhanced academic programs – programs that will prepare and provide our students with jobs for the future. The mission of the committee is to consider emerging trends, look at national and regional issues and opportunities, and recommend academic areas of study to meet the needs and the jobs of the future.

We need your input. Do you have ideas or recommendations for new academic programs, enhanced areas of study, or new majors and minors which will benefit our students? We will review those ideas and recommendations, research their possibilities, prioritize those we believe might work on our campus, and forward recommendations to academic departments for further development.
