Final Strategy Refresh

It’s time to reset the University of Utah’s aspirations, and your help is needed.

President Ruth Watkins and Senior Vice Presidents Dan Reed and Mike Good will host the third and final Strategy Refresh town hall meeting on Monday, June 3, 2019, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Hinckley Caucus Room in Gardner Commons.

The U has made great progress on its four strategic goals—knowledge transfer, student success, community engagement and ensuring the institution’s long-term vitality—over the past five years. While the goals remain the same, it’s time to craft a new plan for accelerating the U’s momentum over the next five years.

More than 200 faculty, staff and students have participated in lively discussions in the initial Strategy Refresh town hall meetings. To date, nearly 60 ideas have been submitted to the Strategy Refresh website, ranging from how to better engage the community to how to help students complete their degrees faster. The ideas will help create a new 2020-25 strategic vision for the U.

“We invite you to engage in a conversation about how the U can successfully achieve these primary goals, elevating our university as a model for the nation,” said Courtney McBeth, project director and special assistant to the president.
