As we head into the final weeks of the academic year, we are working to complete our strategic planning process. Over the past few weeks we received valuable comments and suggestions on the draft plan from many quarters. We also received strong encouragement from the Board of Trustees at its March meeting, where the draft plan was reviewed and its overall direction and approach were approved.
We are now in the process of revising the draft plan in light of the responses to it. The next step will be to discuss the revised version with the University Advisory Council (UAC) at its May 2 meeting. The UAC encompasses the academic leadership of the University, along with the senior vice presidents. Their comments on the revised version will then enable us to produce the final version of the strategic plan, which will be submitted to the Board of Trustees for approval at its May 17 meeting.
Once again, I want to offer my thanks to all those who have contributed to this process. We could not have reached this point without the help of the many faculty, students, staff, alumni and trustees who have given so much thought and effort to this endeavor. I am deeply grateful.
