Last spring, St. Cloud State launched two strategic initiatives that are critical to the success of It’s Time: the Integrated Liberal Education Experience Redesign (ILEED) and the creation of an Honors College. The ILEED and Honors College Working Groups have been working over the summer to research and develop initial conceptual frameworks that will serve as the beginning of a year-long engagement with the St. Cloud State University community to design and implement these initiatives.

During the Fall 2021 Academic Affairs Forum, we will provide a progress report on the ILEED and Honors College initiatives, and team members from each group will host discussion sessions for the campus community to provide input into their future direction.

Facilitators: President Robbyn Wacker, Dan Gregory, Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs, ILEED Task Force and Honors College Workgroup.

(This session will be recorded.)
