President’s Report President Wohlpart outlined the board meetings for the next two days and gave an update on our Values and Strategic Plan. He explained that departments and offices across the university have been asked to gather to review the draft models and identify strengths and weaknesses. Feedback is due Friday, March 17, 2023. The Steering Committee will meet soon after and review the feedback. The group will finalize a Values and Strategic Plan framework that will be shared with the university community. Additional campus conversations will continue so that we can develop initiatives and action items for the Strategic Plan, as well as key performance indicators that will help us measure our success.
