University Leadership Team

The mission of the University Leadership Team is to create and foster a culture of collaboration and shared responsibility across all units and all activities of the University. The goals of this group are to:

  1. think strategically about the mission and values of the University,
  2. establish a dialogue that extends beyond the individual department or unit to encompass the voice of the University community, and
  3. create new lines for effective communication.
