Provost Perrin speaks about academic restructuring, including the timeline as well as questions addressed at last week’s Restructuring Committee meeting. “Our goal here is to create a single academic unit that could be either a school or a college, that would build on our strengths in health and human development. And the charge of the committee is to create several options, with an accompanying narrative for each option, identifying the advantages and disadvantages and challenges of each option, for consideration,” he said. He also acknowledged concerns. “You know, anytime you engage in change of this magnitude on a university campus, it raises lots of concerns and fear…But I think we have the opportunity here to create something very exciting for UNCG. Something that will optimally prepare our students to compete for positions in these fields, careers in these fields.”
