The University of Iowa

Strategic Initiative Task Forces

In spring 2009 Provost Wallace Loh formed six task forces, composed of highly respected faculty and staff who were recommended by shared governance leaders and collegiate deans. Their overarching charge was to offer ideas and recommendations to shape the academic direction of the University, bearing in mind the changing economic, demographic, and technological realities of our globalized world. The six task forces are:

Strategic Budgeting

Undergraduate Education and Success

Graduate Education: Selective Excellence

Research and Creative Excellence

Internationalization and Diversity

Public Outreach and Civic Engagement
