Steering Committee

To help us analyze the feedback from our campus community and develop the final strategic plan for approval by the Board of Trustees in April 2020, President Andrew Hsu appointed a Strategic Planning Steering Committee. The Steering Committee will be co-chaired by Interim Provost Fran Welch and Chief of Staff Paul Patrick.
