The Executive Steering Committee charged by President Bruininks and Provost Sullivan with the review of the Academic Health Center (AHC) has completed the data gathering and analysis phases of the process. Their draft report offering recommendations about the role of the AHC at the University of Minnesota is now available for review.
In keeping with the original project plan, the Executive Steering Committee is also soliciting comments on the draft report from interested members of the University community. This has always been recognized as an important phase of the AHC review process, so the Executive Steering Committee encourages responses from the community prior to its submitting the final report.
The Executive Steering Committee's draft report, the reports from the three subcommittees (Mission/Vison, Administrative Infrastructure, Centers and Programs), reference material and a list of those involved in the review process or consulted in the course of the review can be found on this website.
The website page with all the documents also includes a link to an electronic tool where comments on the draft report may be submitted. Responders are asked to utilize this tool in order to facilitate the compilation of feedback for the Executive Steering Committee's consideration at the end of the public comment period, which closes at midnight on September 30. All comments submitted will be considered public, and responders will be required to log in using their x.500 i.d.
The Executive Steering Committee will consider all feedback and, at its discretion, may revise the draft report accordingly.
