Academic Strategic Plan Engagement and Feedback Opportunities: Week of Oct. 31
Nearly two months of academic strategic planning is behind us, and so much progress has been made. That’s in large part, thanks to the enthusiastic, robust and candid feedback of members of our University community. We have said from the beginning that for this exercise to be successful it must be collectively owned, created and implemented.
Please take a moment to review our weekly engagement plan below. As a reminder, you can attend an engagement session, take a survey or submit your feedback. We also have a student-focused event coming up a week from today; more information is below.
Thank you for your continued engagement, participation and support!
