Interim Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs Karen Schmitt and Vice President of Administration Rob Cramer provided a progress report on key areas of the restructuring efforts at the Board of Regents meeting Oct. 5.
They noted that as of September 1, 2018, the following key transition activities have been accomplished:
- Student applications for admission to branch campuses for the 2019-20 academic year are now going to their respective UW receiving institutions;
- Provision of services to the branch campuses is being administered under memoranda of understanding (MOUs), and the first transfers of these service functions to the receiving institutions are underway;
- Testing of the receiving institution student information systems (SIS) are underway in preparation for the future data migrations from the UW Colleges SIS; and
- Continuing Education, Outreach and E-Learning (CEOEL) is leading the establishment of online collaborative course exchange workgroups with participating UW institutions.
The Higher Learning Commission will conduct its next evaluation visit on December 3-4, 2018.
