Queen's senate approves academic plan

November 24, 2011

On Tuesday, Queen's University's senate unanimously endorsed an academic plan for the institution. The plan identifies 4 core pillars of the academy: the student learning experience; disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity; reaching beyond: globalism, diversity, and inclusion at Queen's; and health, wellness, and community. Among the recommendations relating to these pillars are making the teaching and learning of the Fundamental Academic Skills (such as critical thinking and writing) a priority; encouraging inter-departmental cooperation; making the recruitment of Aboriginal students, faculty, and staff a priority; continuing efforts to attract and engage female students in science and engineering; and continuing to solicit feedback about how to make the campus more safe and welcoming.
