Fall Opening Meeting

The week before classes start, the President hosts the fall opening meeting to celebrate with faculty and staff the start of a new academic year.  The President gives a campus community welcome address, and vice presidents introduce all new employees within their division.  The meeting transitions to a state of the University address providing updates on topics like strategic plan progress and university priorities, reports on key statistics (e.g., enrollment and retention), the budget and performance on financial metrics, employee engagement initiatives, communications and branding, and results on key studies.  These sessions are webcast so everyone at all sites can attend.

Town Hall Meetings

Keeping with University tradition, the President invites faculty, staff, and students to participate in campus community meetings each semester to engage in conversations through thoughtful exchanges.  The forum enables information sharing, interactive discussions, and answers to questions either on the spot or through timely follow-up.  Representatives from the administration, union leaders, and student government officers are available to field questions and provide insight on strategic priorities and actions, external influences causing change, timely updates on initiatives, and topics submitted by the campus community in advance of or during the meeting. These sessions are webcast so everyone at all sites can attend.

 University Leadership Council

Twice a semester, the President convenes the University Leadership Council (ULC), a group consisting of the executive staff, deans, faculty department chairs, bargaining unit leaders, the student government president, athletic director, institutional research director, and administrators with wide-ranging responsibilities. This broad representation is intended to bring focus to issues that extend across university divisions and require collective dialogue and deliberation.  This university leadership group regularly discusses the plans and actions necessary to advance our future, serve our students, and sustain us financially.

 Academic Affairs Leadership Council 

The Provost gathers the academic leaders with executive staff forming the Academic Affairs Leadership Council (AALC).  This group meets twice a semester and serves as an avenue for chairs and administration to discuss “big picture” academic planning and advance the University’s academic vision in a collaborative manner.  Discussion topics may also include specific questions or concerns that influence faculty and student success.
