HCD had its Third Year Review in July. Matt Wisnioski, Associate Dean Amy Pruden, Dean Karen DePauw and myself talked about where we had come in three years and what we planned for the future. Needless to say, we passed and the program continues. Probably the most significant challenge and opportunities lie in the relationship of IGEP’s programs (e.g. HCD) and the Destination Areas/Strategic Growth Areas, since those are where new resources are targeted. One example that Dean DePauw specifically mentioned is that our interdisciplinary students (that is, ones in the IGEP) are obvious candidates for TAships and/or instructor positions in new classes that might emerge in the DA/SGA’s.
