The Executive Faculty were invited to vote on the proposed curriculum transformation between June 10 – 24, 2015. The following message was communicated to the UMMS community on June 25 by Dean James O. Woolliscroft:
Our plan for the curriculum transformation was approved by a majority vote of the Executive Faculty, with 762 faculty voting. Four out of five faculty who voted approved of the curriculum plans and the process we are using to move forward.
