Operation Bold Transition Plan
The Operation Bold Transition Team – named after the president’s desire for the university to be bold in its aspirations – includes a broad cross-section of university expertise. Team members include several deans, department chairs, and representatives of students, hospitals, athletics, staff, and other university areas.
This transition document presents the recommendations of the Transition Team. It’s bold both in its formation (turnaround time of two weeks even with the start of Fall semester during a pandemic) and in its scope. It covers crosscutting and foundational issues (such as equity, diversity, and inclusion), areas of presidential focus (such as student experiences and research innovation and creativity), and a collection of transition imperatives (such as education delivery and cybersecurity).
