October 4, 2010
On October 4, faculty, staff, and students involved in one of the seven Phase I workgroups were invited to a discussion, reception, and dinner. The event was thrown to both thank workgroup members for their time and dedication and to provide an update on the planning process.
Workgroups completed individual white papers in June, and since that time, leadership had reviewed recommendations and outlined common themes. A draft framework, that integrated the workgroups' efforts, was shared, and participants provided thoughtful feedback to be incorporated in future drafts. In the dinner that followed, individuals conversed with those those from different workgroups, as well as different parts of the university, to enhance connections across the university.
