Spring Message 2011
We’ve had a very successful year despite the challenges we faced. That’s thanks to your continuing efforts and the growing understanding of our University’s role in positively shaping Idaho’s future. I have taken nearly every opportunity to share this message throughout the year. However, I want to make sure that you have an understanding of how far we’ve come to help you prepare for the coming year. I believe that the more we can work together from a common understanding, the more we can achieve.
We began the year with a new strategic plan and a number of legislative successes. We’ve also seen outstanding gains in research, giving, and, potentially, in enrollment. These will all affect the budget we will have to achieve our goals. I’d like to share some elements of all of these.
