Open forums to explore next steps for Opportunity Assessment projects

As President Mazey announced last October, the University is engaged in developing a new, more efficient organizational design aimed at achieving large-scale cost reductions without jeopardizing the core mission, utilizing recommendations provided by the management-consulting firm Accenture.

The president has appointed members of the Accenture Report Out Committees (AROC). A brief update will be provided at six open forums next week, beginning Monday (Feb. 3). Committee chairs and members will be introduced, along with an overview of each committee's project opportunities.

All sessions will be available by live video stream on the Web and also viewable afterward.

The exhibition, which runs through February, is located in the center's display case on the fifth floor of the Wm. T. Jerome Library.
