Mission and Vision Refresh

President Gonzalez charged a small group of University leaders and experts with the task of reviewing and refreshing the University Mission and Vision, which was last fully updated in 2007. The group is charged with completing their work.

In November and December of 2023, the Mission and Vision work group conducted a University-wide survey and met with shared governance groups for input.
