Threats for UNC Asheville (generally external to the University)


  1 This portion was skipped, ideas to be mailed to David Todd or Kathy Whatley
  2 If we do not define ourselves and constantly explain the workings of the academy and its rich intellectual

 20   Additional Ending Comments
 21   We are a special school, stay proud of our distinction
 22   Post minutes of all campus meetings on the web site
      USA no longer accepts that higher education is an unqualified good and that the
 23   people who work in it know that they are trying to do the right thing
      Find a way to deploy human resources more quickly, solve problems more
 24   quickly
 25   Need a campus wide master calendar
 26   Resolve trust issues on campus, people want to feel heard
 27   Missed opportunity in how we market ourselves, advertise our uniqueness
 28   Thank you for this process, for listening
 29   What is the next step, what can we fix, without the needed money
 30   Take advantage of new university system president, look closely at PACE

 31   This process seems very efffective because it has included all of the community
      Need help developing grant proposals, would help resolve funding issues and
 32   increase faculty morale
