Dan, Kerry and Judy are to develop a list of students to be invited. It was further agreed that the Academic Council and Department Chairs would be invited.
The purpose of the retreat is to have a first-draft discussion of MVP statement in relationship to the Univesity’s planning assumptions and priorities. The intended outcome of the meeting would be to develop a report, which would be sent to the campus community to be used for further discussion at the Administrative Retreat in the fall.
