In addition to learning about recent developments in academic affairs, participants will hear an update on the Vol Vision Milestone Review and have an opportunity to provide feedback during a breakout session facilitated by members of the Milestone Review Committee. As preparation for this breakout session, please read the working draft of the five-year assessment of Vol Vision (provided via e-mail from Provost Martin) in its entirety prior to the retreat.
