While there is no strict agenda, some of the questions the group will discuss include the following: 

  • What does higher education look like in the future? What strengths should UD leverage to develop a distinctive curriculum that prepares students to be lifelong learners?
  • How might our academic and non-academic functions at UD be organized to most effectively achieve our mission?
  • What key advances in infrastructure would allow UD to be more effective in supporting our students, staff and faculty?
  • Who are UD’s partners of the future? In what innovative ways might we engage with these partners?
  • What distinguishes UD from other institutions? Of what should we be most proud?
  • If you were to name one hope or aspiration for UD, what would it be?
