- Status Report & Winter Tasks
I have attached a document I was asked to prepare for a December workshop with President Casteen, the
vice presidents, deans, and other university leadership regarding the progress of our
commission's work. This report reflects the work of our exploratory groups, commission
meetings, informal focus groups, and additional information provided by our consultants
and our research. As you read it, please do so with a dual purpose: (1) your input
to shape the report, and (2) your selection of task(s) for January-March. Please note
there are specified tasks in section II and III of the report. We will need every member
of the commission contributing her or his time in order to complete our work by summer
- Further Focus on One Benchmark
As we noted at the last meeting, we are reviewing in greater detail 5-7 universities to
determine if we need further study, visits from them to us, or visits by us to them.
Toward that goal, Laura Hawthorne will lead a discussion on UNC-Chapel Hill to see if this
approach is helpful to you in making these decisions.
- Brief Followup on the Exploratory Group Reports led by
John Echeverri-Gent and Robert Hull.
