Members of the IDS committee (Jennifer Long, James Welch, Zach Simpson and Jeanne Mather) and Krista Maxson met to review the responses from faculty, students and alumni along with an updated draft of IDS outcomes/goals from Brenda Brown. The following draft list of goals for the IDS program is provided for your review and discussion to be voted on at your next faculty association meeting to endorse them and move them forward to the next level of vetting. Please note that measurable learning outcomes will be developed for each course to provide evidence of the program meeting these goals.
