SUBJECT: ICT Report and Journalism Plus Action Plan
I wanted to update you on the latest developments in our conversations about journalism, mass communication, information, communication, digital media, and technology. Today, we are releasing two documents: the report of the Information, Communication, and Technology Exploratory Committee, which I formally accepted yesterday, and a Journalism Plus Action Plan communicated yesterday to the President by the Chancellor as part of the discontinuance process around the School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
The documents can be found here: http://academicaffairs.colorado.edu/academicreview/ While these are separate processes, they are mutually informing, so we are providing these two documents to the campus as an indication of where we are today and where we are headed in the future.
Together, the Journalism Plus Action Plan and the ICT report provide us with a clear path to pursue as we await the decision of the Board of Regents on program discontinuance of SJMC. I look forward to working with the faculty, students, and staff to realize the potential embodied in these documents.
I know that you have had concerns about the discontinuance process. It is important for you to realize 1) that the Board of Regents has not yet voted on program discontinuance and 2) that whatever they decide, your future is secure. As a student in the SJMC what you need to know is that we are committed to your ability to complete the degree on which you have embarked. The faculty and staff of the SJMC will work with you to complete your studies here in a timely fashion.
The campus is also committed to the future of journalism education. While the structure of a degree necessarily evolves over time, we remain convinced of the importance of journalism to the mission of the University of Colorado Boulder.
We believe this is an exciting time for journalism education at CU. We are working to make sure we have the plans in place to ensure our collective future.
