Meeting 1: Summary

Susana and Bilin reported that the Leadership Team discussed the recommendations and action steps in the 2010-11 CCT Annual Report, noted their alignment with the Strategic Plan, and endorsed the general priorities described in the CCT Report. CCT members recognized that CCT and UCTs work during 2011-12 will focus on implementing action steps. Members also discussed how best to support the work of the UCTs and how to strengthen the relationship between the CCT and UCTs. A preliminary discussion of CCT 2011-12 activities took place.

Definitions of diversity, equity and social justice (Strategic Plan Goal 2.1) prepared by Susana were used as a starting point for developing definitions for campus review. A subcommittee will work on this and bring draft definitions to the next CCT meeting.
