2016-2017 Leadership

During fall 2014, the president's office appointed two campus committees to assess what it needs to do over the next several years. During summer 2015, the president appointed chairs for each goal area, and these chairs worked with the leadership team to form committees. In summer 2016, committee chairs appointed steering committee members, and these members have formed numerous subcommittees and working groups to focus on their areas of action.

Charge for Each Pathway Goal Committee

  • Determine how to tackle the tasks and issues present within their goal area, based on the Tier One vision, goals, key measures of success, and strategies.
  • Define precisely what can be accomplished over the next year and what needs to happen over a several year period.
  • Determine strategies for the long term.
  • Prepare mid-year and final reports.
