Our planning process is strongest if many members of our community participate. Based on feedback we have heard from the community on how people would like to provide input, we will hold a series of meetings in a variety of formats to provide opportunities for conversation. In the week of November 28, 2022, we will offer the following options for input regarding possible new priorities, in hopes that those wishing to participate will find a time that works well for them.

Initial input on major priorities beyond the existing ones.

A town hall on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-racism will also take place on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 6 p.m. in the Reid Campus Center Basement, and will importantly inform our planning as well.

At the end of the fall semester, the Steering Committee will share a summary of ideas that have emerged for possible new priorities. We will discuss these further on campus in January, and will also gather input on possible revised approaches to the existing priorities.
