Share your thoughts on Pillar 3 of the UCI strategic plan

To the Anteater community:

Over the last two weeks, the UCI community has participated in evaluating our draft strategic plan by providing anonymous feedback and new ideas for the first two pillars. Today, we begin week three – Pillar 3: Great Partners: Making Regional and Global Connections That Enhance Our Mission and Serve the People. Whether you have a few minutes or an hour, I hope you visit the wiki survey to provide your feedback on ideas related to this theme. Please remember that you may exit the survey at any time and your entries will be submitted. You may revisit later in the week to reengage with new strategies that have emerged. Our third week begins this afternoon and runs through next Wednesday at 3 p.m.

Please visit the strategic plan section of my website to access the wiki survey and general comments links. As of Monday afternoon, more than 10,000 entries had been logged by faculty, staff, students, alumni and community supporters on Pillar 2, and many new ideas were incorporated.

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