    fundamental areas as curriculum, subject matter

    and those aspects of student life which relate to

    the educational process.


    Unit Autonomy is Highly Valued Race/Ethnicity 2004 -2014

    Caveat Race/Ethnicity 2004 -2014

    organizational lines.


    Challenge Race/Ethnicity 2004 -2014

    Drake University has an organizational structure

    and culture similar to that found at most other

    institutions of higher education. Is the

    organizational structure best suited for the university

    imagined in Drake University: Vision 2025?
