Preparing for the open meetings on Brandeis’ future

Nov. 27, 2017

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

This document serves as an introduction to our open meetings on the future direction of Brandeis. It has three main goals:

  1. To provide the context for charting the university’s course over the next three to five years.
  2. To present a set of high-level strategic priorities, which will draw the major contours of the university’s direction over the coming years. On Tuesday, November 28, we will begin a discussion that will continue for several months as I hold open meetings and receive feedback to what I present at these meetings. This will include, but not be limited to, a high-level summary of ideas and commentaries from the 33 self-reflection documents.
  3. To provide a timeline for the dynamic, iterative process we will use over the next nine months to establish a course for the university, which will include setting priorities and a financial plan.

I look forward to beginning this process at our first open meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, November 28, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Levin Ballroom.
