Dear Colleagues,

In preparation for our upcoming LDI on November 4, I wanted to provide some information on our focus for the day. Attached is the agenda and workshop questions. The theme for the day is "UWG 2020 Vision: Solve & Evolve - How do we get there from here!"

I will start the day with an overview of our UWG 2020 goals. Primarily, we will focus on identifying the opportunities and challenges related to reaching our enrollment goal of 15,000 students by 2020. I will provide discussion points on student market trends; best practices for retention, progression and graduation rate improvement; academic program alignment with projected occupational trends; and student services and operational opportunities.

To "Solve and Evolve" we need to better understand these opportunities and challenges that departments and divisions will face and identify strategies to better communicate and collaborative across units and divisions in order to reach our goal. To facilitate the discussion and workshop, we will have cross divisional breakouts at the assigned tables (already established as you arrive) and then after lunch, we will have divisional breakouts. The afternoon will culminate with everyone coming back together for a report back from each division and finally a CMG/linkage assignment.
