Goal: To engage and inform all constituencies on an ongoing basis about the changes to the university’s structure; reframe the narrative to focus on opportunities in the new UA /re-envisioning the university.

Guiding principles:

  • Unity in what we say to all constituencies including leadership messaging
  • Honesty and transparency in all aspects of communications
  • Being mindful to correct misinformation or misunderstanding at every opportunity
  • Timeliness in replying to requests for information
  • Respect for the hardships these changes will impose on others
