Renew, Aspire, Steps Forward

The strategic plans overseen by the two previous deans have provided outstanding foundations for the growth of the College. Many well-articulated points in those plans remain essential today. Let us celebrate our many accomplishments and renew our commitment to the 2002 theme of “From Excellence to Preeminence” and the 2009 theme of “Extraordinary People, Global Impact.”

Over the past few years, new opportunities and challenges have arisen, and many new colleagues have joined us. Let us join in conversation on (long-term) aspiration and (near-term) actions. Dean Chiang has asked Professor Kathleen Howell and Professor Mark Lundstrom to help coordinate three channels of discussion: Public Forums, Anonymous Suggestion Box, and Faculty Working Groups over the period of mid-February to end of April.
