  • Access, particularly with regard to financial aid.  Need to give careful thought, especially to middle-class families.  Need-blind admissions as important goal.
  • Learning to focus intensively on something for three and a half weeks is a great outcome of the block plan.
  • Where are the plans for the library going?  Be sure to look at the plans that have already been made, rather than reinvent the wheel.
  • Many of the questions that the strategic planning process is addressing are ones that past strategic planning processes have addressed.  Can learn from those thoughts.
