Tackling Challenges: 2020-22 Key Initiatives

November 9, 2020 | UToday
By Dr. Adrienne King



The working teams focused on the 2020-22 Key Initiatives identified by Interim President Gregory Postel have started meeting to develop their plans to tackle current obstacles and explore innovative ideas to prepare UToledo for the future.

Each team’s charge includes brainstorming possible resolutions and preparing action plans to address fundamental operational challenges. Each team’s plan is expected to be implemented within the next 12-18 months, in advance of a national search for The University of Toledo’s next permanent president.

The teams will be providing preliminary updates of their planning process over the next several weeks via a Q&A format in UToledo News. The campus community is invited to follow along with each team’s progress and offer ideas for improvement and innovation using the online recommendation form.

“The goal of each team’s work is to create a solid foundation upon which to build future growth,” Postel said. “We need the support of every member of the campus community to help us realize UToledo’s potential.”

The teams, which include faculty, staff and student representatives, are expected to include additional participants as their work progresses.

Recognizing that some of these challenges will require one-time investment funding, the team focusing on Reinvestment Strategy will play a critical supporting role in the work of all of the 2020-22 Key Initiatives.
