Follow-up Report to the President on Reinventing Governance

Following an initial presentation to President’s Cabinet, President Rule charged the Reinventing Governance Task Force (RGTF) to solicit comments from around the campus and report back. The RGTF organized ten open comment sessions and synthesized the responses. That feedback was included in A Follow-up Report to the President on Reinventing Governance 6-9-15. More information on this process will be announced in the near future.

Open Comment Period Begins May 12th

In the Fall quarter we asked for your input on the colleges strategic planning efforts. In the Winter we formed several task forces to synthesize all the data we collected. Now that Spring is here, it is time to bring the plans back to you for feedback.

On Monday May 12th, draft copies of the Strategic, Academic and Student Affairs plans will be posted here on the Designing Our Future website for your review (see Draft Plans). We encourage you to share your feedback, advice, questions, etc. via the site through Friday, May 23.

During the second week of the open comment period, we will also host a two-day Open House on Monday, May 19th and Tuesday, May 20th (from 9am to 6pm) in the West Boardroom (B201). During these two days, members of the Strategic Planning Steering Committee and the task forces will be available to answer questions and receive feedback. Participants are also encouraged to bring written comments, and provide edits during the Open House. In addition, drafts will remain posted in (and outside of) the West Boardroom throughout the week for comment.

If you would like to provide feedback in a more structured environment, we will also be hosting three facilitated Feedback Sessions on Tuesday, May 20th (1 hr sessions starting at 10:30, 12:30 and 3:30). To sign up for one of these sessions, please contact Tracy Biga MacLean (click her name to send an e-mail request). If demand exists, we will add additional sessions.

Details will be provided to North Campus, ASG, and community partners to highlight some of the additional opportunities for these groups to provide feedback.

Thank you all for your input during the Fall and your patience in giving the task forces time to synthesize that information.  We look forward to your input on what has come from those efforts!
