2030 Implementation Team Update (Nov. 19, 2020)

As the work of the 2030 teams moves forward, we have begun the process of connecting with individuals and groups on campus to gather information and feedback in our areas of focus. Over the past few weeks, the 2030 co-leads (Dolan and Harris) have made presentations to and held discussions with the Faculty Senate, the Ombuds Council, and the campus-wide group of Associate Deans.

As part of our efforts to get feedback from members of the campus community and gather relevant data for our work, various groups and subgroups have met with a number of campus groups and individuals:

  • Members of the Reforming the Undergraduate Experience group have met with the Academic Planning and Curriculum Committee, members of the Business and Financial Services team, Humanities department chairs, and have reported to the Faculty Senate. In the coming weeks, group members will be meetings with people from the Dean of Students Office, Enrollment Management, Student Affairs, and Advising units.
  • The co-leads of the Restructuring Schools and Colleges have begun visits with different units and have also met with the chairs of the social science departments, the natural science departments, the Peck School of the Arts, and the engineering departments.
  • The Maintaining Research Excellence group has reported to the Faculty Senate and has arranged to meet with various research support units.
  • The members of the Creating a Radically Welcoming Campus Environment group have met with members of the Pathways and Interventions group, the Enrollment Management leadership, Student Affairs staff and have made a presentation to the Student Association Senate.

These meetings and consultations will continue as the semester winds down. Members of the campus community are encouraged to read the 2030 Task Force Report and the information about the 2030 Implementation Team activities at the planning website.

In the meantime, we hope that everyone enjoys a happy holiday next week.
