We've entered what appears to be a "silent phase" of our strategic planning process. Don't mistake the lack of noise for lack of action. The Strategic Planning Committee, under the leadership of Linda Shapiro and Bill Pierce, has been busy taking the plan foundation to the university and Louisville communities.
More than 100 scientists from across the globe will gather in Louisville on April 21 through 24 for the first-ever conference focused on the role of quadruplex DNA in biology and chemistry – a new field that looks promising to cancer researchers.
Last week President Ramsey and I had a open forum for UofL students, faculty and staff where we presented the proposed undergraduate tuition rate for 2007-08.
The Strategic Planning Committee has reached the first point in its work where it is requesting input from the university community. The committee is charged to develop a plan to set the university's course for the next decade and beyond.
One of the most important tasks any faculty member or staff person has at the university is advising students. That's why each year the provost's office recognizes their dedication with the Provost Awards for Exemplary Advising.
For the past two years, we have been engaged in gathering information on the university, our faculty, students and programs for our accreditation review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. That process almost is complete. We have presented SACS with a report, they have reviewed it and a committee will pay a site visit to campus April 10 and 11.
