Leadership Conversation Series

A time for deeper engagement

This year the RH2025 steering committee led a community engagement process to refine our mission, vision, values and strategic priorities for the next four years. The approach to this plan is a simple but profound framework allowing plenty of room for faculty, staff, colleges, and units to determine how they best embody its direction. You are invited to sign up for a Leadership Conversation particularly, if you have questions and concerns. There will be no presentations just listening and exploring.
