Acknowledgements 

 

            This project has benefited from the generous contributions of time of many individuals.  We would like in particular to thank President Bacow, Provost Bharucha, Dean Ernst, and Dean Manno for their time and support of our work.  We would also like to thank Kristine Dillon who served the Task Force as Co-Chair for nearly a year before her departure from the University; the role she played in the early stages helped to ensure the success of the project.  Dawn Terkla and the staff of the Office of Institutional Research made a number of contributions to our work including helping us design and then administer a faculty survey last spring.  We are grateful as well to Cathy Doheney, Shawn Harmon, Joanne McPherson, and Judy Olson who provided tremendous assistance to us over the past two years.  We would also like to acknowledge the work of the Student Advisory Committee.  Their thinking and contributions are infused throughout this report.  Finally, the Task Force would like to acknowledge the invaluable contributions of Lara Birk, the project coordinator.  Lara has scheduled countless meetings, kept the Task Force on schedule, attended to a myriad of details, and written large sections of the various reports we put out over the past two years.  She has done all this with an equanimity and grace that is inspiring.  We would never have completed our work without her assistance.
