The University System of Georgia during September 2012 established an initial Completion Policy Review Task Force with campus and system representatives from all functional areas, as well as faculty and students. As they begin to examine policy and make recommendations, we need your ideas and feedback to inform their work.
Policy guides behavior. It sets expectations, communicates what to do and what not to do. It Influences what we see and think as possible courses of action. Establishing a balanced operating environment through policy is vital to achieving college completion goals, which include maintaining and improving quality in teaching and learning.
In the case of this Task Force, “policy” means system-level policies found typically in the Board Policy Manual or theAcademic & Student Affairs Handbook with a strong bearing on access and graduation leading to improved college completion.
