I appreciated your participation and questions, both in person and virtually, during and after the financial conversation event on Monday.

The slides presented during the event and a recording of the presentation are now available. A university login is required to access them.

This presentation is part of an ongoing conversation about our university’s current situation and next steps. We all have a role to play in creating solutions. Please continue to stay focused on our students; that is key to our sustainability and our future.

If you have questions or need more information, please talk with me or members of my leadership team, and please plan to attend upcoming events to continue our conversation. We want to ensure that you have the resources you need for us to move forward together.

As mentioned previously, faculty and staff are invited to “A Conversation about Academic Restructuring and Program Review” with Provost Lara Luetkehans on Wednesday, February 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (the Common Hour) in the Blue Room, on the first floor of Sutton Hall. This program will be livestreamed; information on registration for online participation will be sent later this week.

The program also will be presented to students on Tuesday, February 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in-person only, in the Blue Room.

Additional reminders for this event and for other discussions planned this semester will be sent closer to the dates of the programs.

Thank you for continuing to be engaged, and most important, thank you for caring so deeply about our students.
