‘President’s Update’ newsletter to be transformed

November 27, 2018

News Presidents Update

In support of a strategic planning and key initiatives process, the university is undergoing several changes, including some that were announced last week. As we review areas of the university and seek strategic realignment and operational effectiveness, we are also reviewing the ways in which we communicate news internally. As part of these changes, we have decided to discontinue publishing the current form of the “President’s Update” newsletter.

The “President’s Update” began under the direction of Brother William Mann, FSC, president emeritus. It was created as an effort to enhance communication at the university level announcing important events, strategic initiatives, and other news. The messages have been used to highlight ways we advanced agendas for the university in alignment with priority planning. The President’s Office and the Advancement and Communication Office are assessing communication efforts and establishing how we can best keep the university, our community, and our partners informed. We will be creating what we believe will be an even better and more enhanced universitywide update system which will include pertinent information from across the academy, not just from the president.

As we work together in the coming months to shape the future of Saint Mary’s, we will continue to send updates, especially about the strategic planning process, while also sharing important university news as is helpful in other ways. Again, I’m grateful for your continued and thoughtful collaboration and your ongoing commitment to our shared mission.
