Initiatives and Priorities


Please join me for the first “brown bag lunch” Campus Conversation of the 2012–13 academic year on Tuesday, October 2, noon–1 p.m., Coffman Theater, Coffman Memorial Union.

I’m using this month’s conversation as an opportunity to share my priorities for the coming year, including new initiatives to hold down tuition costs and focus on key academic strengths. I’ll also talk about the progress made on operational excellence, and ongoing “Op Ex” plans for the new academic year.

We’ll have time for a discussion period after my presentation. RSVP here if you plan to attend. Visit us online the day of the event to join by UMConnect.

Bring your lunch; refreshments will be provided. Feel free to share this information with others who may be interested in attending.

I look forward to seeing you there.
