Provide Your Input on Elevating the Student Experience to Prepare Student Leaders

To the Anteater community,

Last week, the UCI community participated in evaluating our draft Strategic Plan, Pillar 1:Growth That Makes a Difference: Expanding Our Capacity to Improve Lives. This week, we're asking you to weigh in on Pillar 2: First in Class: Elevating the Student Experience to Prepare Future Leaders. Students and alumni will be more familiar with the strategies in this pillar.

Please visit the Strategic Plan section of my website to access the wiki survey and general comments links. As of noon this past Monday, faculty, staff, students, alumni and community supporters had engaged in 593 sessions of wiki survey activity, contributed many new ideas and made some general comments. Our second week begins this afternoon and runs through next Wednesday at 3 p.m.

While we have been vetting new ideas every day, not all appropriate and implementable ideas have been included. That's because some of the new ideas that we have received are applicable to other pillars. We will enter those ideas into the survey when we add other new ideas for the relevant pillar.

Again, thank you for your ongoing engagement with this process and for sharing all your ideas on how best to prepare for our more brilliant future. I want to continue to hear your voice.

Sincerely,

Enrique Lavernia
Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science
