 Campus Climate

Current Projects (Spring 2011)

Reports from the Campus and Unit Change Teams will be posted here to communicate change team goals and associated actions. In addition, each team will identify the status of each action item (completed or ongoing with anticipated completion date). By posting this information, change teams will learn what other teams are doing, share implementation strategies, and align their work with campus goals. The first report (April 2011) is a summary of the work carried out since November 2010.
