Initiative History

In the wake of tragedy, President G.P. "Bud" Peterson appointed three action teams to solicit input from the campus community and prepare a report identifying key issues, and short- and longer-term recommendations. These reports were shared with a newly created advisory group, which was asked to provide counsel in responding to and prioritizing the more than 180 recommendations. From this set of recommendations came 55 action-oriented objectives, grouped into three focus areas — Student and Community Life, Academics, and Health and Well-Being — which are currently being put into practice.
