Looking Forward

As the University finalizes the reaccreditation process, campus leadership is already considering next steps with respect to our findings and recommendations. As with all self-studies and group deliberations, there are likely to be quick wins that don’t require a significant infusion of energy and funding. Other recommendations, however, would require a substantial commitment of time, people and funds. It is likely that the University will place a high priority on some of the recommendations by making them the focus of future planning and fundraising. However, especially during a time of fiscal constraints when new resources depend almost exclusively on shifts in priorities and reallocation of funds, the University needs to proceed deliberately and in close collaboration with University leadership and campus constituents when deciding on next steps apropos of the rich set of suggestions for enhancements that the reaccreditation process has generated.
