UNC Tomorrow was initiated by UNC president Erskine Bowles and board chair Jim Phillips to help UNC institutions become more responsive to the needs and challenges of our state.  During 2007, the UNC Tomorrow Commission compiled information about those needs and challenges through campus visits, faculty and student input, faculty scholars’ research and analyses, eleven open “community forums” around the state, and a citizens’ survey.  In December 2007, the Commission completed its recommendations.

Then it was our turn to determine how we would respond to those recommendations. Chancellor Oblinger named a Strategy Team (doc | pdf) led by Provost Nielsen to draft a response. Two other teams helped:

  • Faculty Team (doc | pdf)
  • Partners Team (xls)

The response was submitted to UNC-General Administration on May 1, 2008. The Board of Governors will review the material in the early summer.
