UT Dallas' SACSCOC Project

Fifth-Year Leadership Team

The Leadership Team will hold bimonthly meetings during the spring and fall semesters in 2022 and 2023, and in January and February of 2024. The Leadership Team will work in concert with Faculty Fifth-Year Committee in their efforts to address concerns related to faculty-focused Principles of Accreditation. Much of the Leadership Team’s work will be discussion-based and, as in 2017-2018, might serve as a decision-making group and/or group that makes appropriate resolutions to the President; this group will not write the Interim Report. Instead, Dr. Serenity Rose King and her staff in the Office of Institutional Success and Decision Support will be responsible for writing the Interim Report.
