AI Task Force

Task Force Charge

Fresno State created a task force to support a campus wide exploration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) during the 2023-24 academic year. Specifically, the charge is to define how we responsibly leverage AI in ways that are ethical, align with existing university policies, and create guidelines for action. Divisions, college, and school leaders are encouraged to have conversations with employees who have expertise in the use of AI and who have demonstrated their ability to share their experiences in a supportive and intentional manner with their peers. 

The task force includes students and employees and has sub-committees that will explore AI in the context of: 

  • Teaching and Learning - explore the use of AI in educational settings throughout the university
  • Academic Research or Innovation - explore AI in research, scholarship, creative activities, and innovation
  • Security, Classified Data, Legal Implications - explore the impact of AI on security and privacy of employees and stakeholders
  • Workforce Development - explore the role of the university in creating programs to prepare faculty, staff, and students for the future of work leveraging AI
  • University and Academic Policies - explore potential impacts to university and academic policies by the integration of AI throughout the organization 
  • Work Integrity - explore the use of AI in job tasks at every level of the university

These subcommittees will report their findings to the campus community in spring 2024.

Other drivers of this process will include:

  • Open forums with various stakeholders
  • Surveys for initial feedback
  • Focus groups with various stakeholders
  • Academic Senate Discussions
