Report to the President

Acknowledgments

We are grateful to Associate Provost and Assistant to the President Douglas Sears for providing a forum in which our frank ideas and opinions were invited, presented, debated, and developed, and to Dr. Laurie Pohl for providing valuable data and for her help in organizing our conception of strategic planning. Professor Juliet Floyd worked especially hard to refine our thoughts and craft the language of this report. We would also like to thank Susan Giovino in the Office of the President for facilitating our discussions since June, and Cassandra Nelson in the Office of the Provost for helping revise and edit this report. We are, finally, most deeply indebted to the many students, faculty and staff members, and deans who helped us by providing informed, informal feedback along the way.
