These are truly unprecedented and challenging times that not only affect our nation, but in particular, our State System, universities and students. But know, that by working together, we will be able to handle anything that comes before us that will position our universities to best serve our students and communities.
The PACT Executive Board has worked hard these past few weeks to organize a meeting that will provide for much dialog and input from System leaders and you regarding the integration plans that are under consideration. Your participation is vital and we welcome each of you to be part of the discussions regarding the integration planning that will affect ALL our universities. This is where we need your help.
The PACT has structured the fall meetings in such a way to promote additional discussion on understanding the integration planning, and how trustees can best support the universities and students during this critical time. The meetings will be structured as follows: 1) universities that are being considered for integration, and 2) universities that are not being considered for integration, but will still be part of the planning and implementation processes.
Being mindful of the restrictions due to COVID, these meetings will be held virtually. Please add this information to your calendars. No registration is necessary, and we encourage all trustees to participate.
On behalf of the PACT Executive Board, we look forward to your participation in these virtual meetings on October 20 and 22.
