FAFS Faculty and Staff participate in virtual retreat

​​Building on FAFS 2025, the strategic plan launched during fall 2018, faculty and staff participated (October 3) in a four-hour WebEx retreat.  During the morning sessions, Dean Mohtar presented an overview of FAFS in light of current challenges and events, and an update on the revised implementation plans, actions, and activities since the previous retreat.  Afternoon sessions offered brief presentations and open discussions on several topics: 1) Restructuring FAFS' Graduate Programs; 2) FAFS' E-Learning Strategy; 3) FAFS' Research Strategy; 3) Engagement activities at FAFS; 4) New Policies and Guidelines; and 5) FAFS Facilities. Feedback was summarized, and a road map of initiatives and action items was compiled and presented by Dr. Maya Nabhani during the final session. The road map highlighted initiatives for developing research clusters and strategy, for teaching and learning that prioritizes the FAFS' E-Learning Plan, new programs, and accreditations. Community engagement, integration and coordination of FAFS' community service activities, projects with industry, and ESDU's External Advisory Board were identified as priority initiatives for the near future.
