As I near the end of my second year as Provost of CSI, I thought that it might be valuable for me and the campus to reflect on what has been accomplished, where I stand on some key issues and my vision for the future in terms of following our Strategic Plan. As I have done previously, I will present my thoughts as part of a fictional discussion between a Campus Sage and the Provost. I hope that my words will be taken as an objective overview of where we now stand and the challenges that confront us.
