We are in a time of tremendous change in higher education and are faced with both extraordinary challenges and opportunities. To help us focus our vision for the next decade and beyond, I have launched a strategic planning process for the Twin Cities campus. I have asked Provost Karen Hanson to chair the Strategic Planning Workgroup.

In mid August I put out a call for nominations for a faculty-led workgroup that will develop the vision, mission, values, goals, and strategies for our next strategic plan. The response from the campus community was tremendous. We received over 500 nominations.
