The Academic Planning and Strategy Group, which has been meeting since November 2020 and comprises 36 faculty and Deans’ Council representatives, has developed recommendations that will strengthen and refocus Ohio University’s academic core. 

Starting in January 2021, the group began to meet in subgroups focused on academic structures, academic policy and practice and academic offerings. Co-chaired by a faculty member along with a member of Deans’ Council, each subgroup presented reports and recommendations to Provost Sayrs this week.

Panelists for the open session include Provost Sayrs, Associate Professor Emmanuel Jean-Francois, Scripps College of Communication Dean Scott Titsworth, Kraft Family Scholar/Professor Zaki Kuruppalil, Vice President for Research and Creative Activity Joseph Shields, Fox Associate Professor of Marketing Katie Hartman, and Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer Brad Cohen.
