The Chancellor, Provost and the One DU cluster leaders have decided that One DU is too big of a concept to live in a sole group. The spirit of One DU should be embedded within all aspects of our university.

Last year, the One DU cluster and working groups really helped the university think through culture change in a thoughtful manner, bringing a variety of perspectives to the table that added value and critical insight. The working group and cluster members helped illuminate the need for a streamlined process for signature events, the value of traditions, the need for a climate survey and much more. Many of the projects and ideas that were brought forth from the committee are being implemented in other aspects of the university, such as:

From the beginning, we have known that we are experimenting with how the implementation of the strategic plan actually works, and this is an example of how we need to be able to adapt when things aren’t progressing in a way that is productive and efficient for all involved. Therefore, we have decided that the executive committee will take the year to really examine how we can operationalize One DU within existing structures instead of through the cluster structure.

Please continue to check back for updates and stories of impact that reflect the spirit of One DU.
