View Videos of College Conversations

Many thanks to all of you who were able to attend our College Conversation sessions this Monday and Tuesday, March 23 and 24. We had a strong turnout at the events themselves, as well as online for the live streams. It's great to see this level of interest in the CLA Roadmap. Those of you who were unable to attend can view videos of both events here.

Just a reminder: the draft of the Roadmap document is online for your review, and will remain open for comments until April 3. I welcome your feedback, whether voicing support for recommendations in the document, suggesting revisions, or proposing additional ideas for consideration. Comments can be submitted using the Roadmap Feedback Form or via the link on the first page of the Roadmap document.

If you'd like to provide feedback in person, mark your calendar to attend one of our upcoming College Conversations. The Goal Team chairs and I will be available to answer questions, provide insights, and hear your suggestions.

College Conversations: March 23 and 24

Last Thursday, the CLA Roadmap Steering Group came together to discuss the work of the Goal Teams. The Goal Team chairs shared the recommendations that emerged from their teams to advance the Roadmap Goals. These recommendations will be refined over the next several weeks to form the content of the Roadmap, and posted here during the week of March 16.

That's where you come in. I'm pleased to invite you to join the Goal Team chairs and me for College Conversations, where we open the floor for discussion and answer questions about the recommendations and the process undertaken to develop them.

Monday, March 23, 10:00-11:30 a.m.
1114 Social Sciences Building

Tuesday, March 24, 3:00-4:30 p.m.
Fireplace Room (Room 135), Nicholson Hall

Much like the Campus Conversations that took place as part of University strategic planning, these sessions provide an opportunity for you to give feedback that will shape further revision of the Roadmap. I hope to see many of you there, and look forward to hearing your suggestions and comments.
