CCFA MFRI – Major Field Reading Initiative 2009-2010

Mission: To serve as TROY’s pilot MFRI program and develop a process that can be replicated by the other colleges and will be acceptable to SACS officials. SACS expects specific details on how the MFRI will be implemented and assessed. Since CCFA is on a condensed timeline, we will choose the book and create a plan of action this summer. The next college MFRI will begin the process with a spring 2010 book selection followed by implementation in Fall 2010.
