Think Big Meet-Ups and Updates

We hope you've had some time to dig in to the outcome of our Think Big strategic planning initiative. To define our identity and capture our essence, we've introduced Agora Academics, a useful metaphor for our own unique approach to interdisciplinarity infused with community and attention to culture. We've also articulated a North Star and have identified four pathways that will steer decision-making and prioritization.

Now, we're seeking input on these pathways and working to develop associated metrics and creative ideas in support of the plan. We hope that you have reviewed the pathways and that you will join us at one of our Campus Meet-Ups to share your ideas for activities, programs and/or initiatives which might support these pathways. We hope to see you there!

For those of you not on campus this summer, we encourage you to provide feedback via our online form, or on Workplace.
