2030 Implementation Team Update (Jan. 6, 2020)

As campus returns to activity, we wanted to update you on the most recent activities of the 2030 Implementation Team. As we continue to connect with members of the campus community, the 2030 co-leads, along with Provost Britz and Vice Chancellor Van Harpen, held a series of meeting in December with personnel from all 13 schools and colleges. Over the course of seven meetings, we met with hundreds of faculty, staff, and administrators to provide updates on enrollment patterns, budget issues, and the goals of the 2030 project. Each session made time for a Q+A with participants and provided an opportunity for more members of the campus community to offer their input.

For those seeking a brief review of the highlights of the 2030 Task Force report, a one-page summary and a link to the full report.

With our January 31 reporting deadline approaching, members of the four working groups are finalizing recommendations and laying out action plans for the Chancellor’s consideration. In doing so, we will identify short, medium, and long-term recommendations and the steps that would be necessary to implement any adopted recommendations. This will include identifying the individuals, offices, and governance groups whose work will be crucial to execute these recommendations. We anticipate that the spring 2021 semester will be one in which broad campus conversation and planning will take place and we encourage all members of the campus community to remain attentive to these activities.
