  • Aligns policies, procedures and outcomes with official expressions of mission, goals and values;
  • Eliminates process, structural and systemic barriers to achieving institutional diversity, equity and inclusion;
  • Integrates the creative talents of the entire university community into university programming, decision-making, and operations
  • Implements a coordinated accountability driven, continuous improvement model of programming, staffing and operations; and
  • Leverages its historical legacy, its geographic positioning in southeastern Michigan, and its institutional strengths to position itself for 21st Century leadership in transforming the region and the nation.
