The Institute is sitting on a great deal of potential. However, there is no long term vision/mission or collaborative plan to make the Institute into a School that extends down to the entire organization. I feel one of our strengths as a school and institute is that we look to helping the community more than other schools. However, one thing we struggle with is acting and making good decisions based on this motivation. The institute is in a flux…The programs are becoming independent but they are not of the same quality and focus. We need to develop processes among us so that we are efficient in delivering a quality education to our students [and] where all faculty can pursue their research so that both the undergrad and grad programs can benefit. 4 Comments
