A Choice to Change the World
“A choice to change the world also means taking responsibility for the ways each of us is always changing the world - and not always for the better – through our excessive consumption of the world’s resources. Understanding our own environmental impact and seeking to reduce it is a choice that all of us can make every day.” Opening Convocation Speech by President Beverly Daniel Tatum August 30, 2007

Operational excellence, which will create an optimal experience for all campus visitors

Accountability evident in greater cross-institutional cooperation, improved efficiency, and consistently excellent service

Leadership opportunities, including professional development and training, for continued growth and development
