When:

* Graduate School of International Policy and Management – Friday, February 20, retreat from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, followed by lunch from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.

Where: All retreats will take place at the La Playa Hotel in Carmel

Why: The retreats are designed to kick off a semester-long planning process resulting in organizational roadmaps for the two new graduate schools and for a new office of advising and student services.

Expected outcomes include:

* A sense of common purpose and direction, as we move forward
* Excitement about new ideas and synergies
* A set of planning groups with clear tasks for the spring semester, leading to a smooth implementation of the new organizational structure in the summer of 2009

Examples of some of the questions we will consider:

* What will the internal structure of each school look like?
* How will we encourage synergies in program development between the two schools?
* How will the new program heads function within each school, vis-a-vis their deans, their faculty?
* How will the advising and student services functions be organized?
* How will the advising and student services staff interact with the two schools?
* How will the advising and student services functions interact with other administrative areas, such as admissions and alumni relations?
* How will we encourage-disciplinary collaboration and research opportunities among programs and schools?
