Community Dialogue Archive (for 2015–2018 Strategic Plan)

Read about community response to recommendations on UMGC's business approach.

On July 10, 2014, UMUC President Javier Miyares initiated a community dialogue at a global Town Hall meeting at the university's Academic Center at Largo. There, he introduced a report from the Ideation Group—a volunteer team of outside business leaders—that recommended changes to the university's business model.

Community Conversation

The Conversation Continues

The process of soliciting the views of staff, faculty, students, and alumni has broadened and deepened with the start of small group sessions and the following new developments:

  • President Miyares has been meeting with UMUC's advisory councils to hear member views firsthand.
  • Additional meetings are being scheduled to hear the views of all others who have posted comments or questions on this web page.
  • The series of small group sessions will be held in Largo and Adelphi during September.
  • Two WebEx discussions will be scheduled to hear the views of UMUC community members elsewhere in the country and overseas.
  • To ensure candid discussions, comments offered in these small group sessions will be summarized and shared with President Miyares with no names attached to the report.
  • A summary of the sessions will be posted on this web page so others can respond and add their voices to the discussion. 
  • This process is designed to elicit the views of all who have suggestions about how UMUC can best serve our students, as well as the path forward for the university.
