Public input on regional campuses sought
A Miami task force wants community input as it continues to examine issues affecting the Hamilton and Middletown campuses, including whether or not the regional campuses offer the appropriate mix of degree programs.
The task force, established this fall under the authority of the Miami University First in 2009 Coordinating Council, is addressing the following charges:
--Identify the most important issues facing the regional campuses, prioritize them and develop recommendations for action;
--Consider the most appropriate relationships among the three campuses;
--Determine the strategic and programmatic directions for the regional campuses, including the appropriate mix of degree programs and the appropriate degree of outreach and public service.
There will be six open forums to solicit comments and recommendations. The general public, students, faculty and staff on all three campuses are invited to participate.
The forums are scheduled for:
--January 20, noon-1 p.m., at Miami Middletown, in the Johnston Hall lobby
--January 20, 3:30-4:30 p.m., at Miami Middletown, in the Johnston Hall lobby
--January 24, 3-4 p.m., at Miami Hamilton, in the Harry T. Wilks Conference Center
--January 24, 5-6 p.m., at Miami Hamilton, in the Harry T. Wilks Conference Center
--February 4, noon-1 p.m., at Miami Oxford, in the Benjamin Harrison Room of the Shriver Center. This forum will focus on discussion with relocated students.
--February 4, 3-4 p.m., at Miami Oxford, in 111 Harrison Hall
The goal is to examine how the three campuses of Miami can better meet the needs of the community and the region.
