Key Goals

Academic Scenarios + Integrative Academic Planning

  • Develop guidance for faculty/programs across all divisions on the key academic scenarios and how to prepare for the Fall.
  • Conduct analysis of the curriculum to determine what courses can be held entirely online, what courses can be hybridized, and what courses will require access to the physical campus.
  • Work continuously with FEC/CRAB to incorporate faculty understanding, expectations and voice within emerging educational, instructional staffing and financial planning.
  • Integrate plan for Fabrication Studios to support demands of reworked curriculum.
  • In consultation with “Healthy, Safe, and Sustainable Campus” group, develop plans for reallocating space in line with this curricular analysis.
  • Provide summer faculty training/guidance for development of online and hybrid courses.
  • Liaise continuously with President’s Council, other R5 groups, internal groups and Faculty, Staff and Student leadership regarding academic planning for Fall 2020 and AY2021.

Communications for All Constituencies

  • Provide timely, accurate, and relevant communications to all of MICA’s audiences both internally and externally in support of MICA’s institutional efforts for campus opening and ongoing operation during the Reopen and Recovery phases
  • Create systems and processes to obtain, ascertain relevance, and distill incoming information from internal and external sources for integration into an agile communications flow.
  • Serve as first-stop for groups that seek to conduct outreach / communicate to students, parents, faculty and staff in order to ensure equity and appropriately diverse viewpoints are integrated. Coordinate and streamline the gathering, sharing and learning from that input.
  • Ensure our communications blind spots as a PWI are cleared.
  • Desilo communications/information sources and eliminate duplicative efforts through cross-departmental communications audits.
  • Enhance/consolidate existing communications vehicles and channels that are effective, eliminate those that are not, and create new ones where there are gaps.
  • Increase data-driven decision making capacity by leveraging consolidated and centralized information gathering processes.

Community of Care: Campus & Baltimore Phase I

  • Incorporate into MICA’s COVID-19 navigation actions of care for MICA and Baltimore that are informed by the understanding of the needs of people and the cultures of the college and the city.
  • Encourage mutual care and ensure the communal well-being of the MICA campus community over the summer and through the Fall 2020 reopening.
  • Enliven MICA’s tenet of “We model a community of care.”

Enrollment Melt Prevention

  • Using three targeted subgroups, plan and coordinate efforts to minimize new and returning student attrition in the lead up to the Fall 2020 semester.

Healthy, Safe, and Sustainable Campus

  • Identify the public health measures, policies and guidelines that need to be implemented to minimize the risk of COVID-19 being spread to campus community members.
  • Making the campus healthy and safe, including but not limited to these areas – facilities, dining, transportation.
  • Consider implications of all potential measures on sustainability and identify solutions that are sustainability-friendly.

Human Resources: Ideas & Support for a Changed Workplace – Phase I

Student Support + Success: Student Life

Student Support + Success: Class of 2020

  • Identify ongoing ways for MICA to both celebrate and support the Class of 2020 as they launch into their first professional year.
