Reflection and Renewal … Edinboro University

 

The membership of each Working Group was determined to best reflect the diversity of Edinboro University as well as insure a necessary skill-set to accomplish the task of evaluation, not description.  The composition of each Working Group reflects the breadth of disciplines and tasks reflective of our institution and our mission as well as length of time at the University and range of demographic variables.  Working Group composition was intentionally limited in size in order to facilitate the nature of the required activity.
