Today, institutions of higher education face many complex issues From shifting demographics to aligning graduate education to meeting the needs of both students and the research enterprise to addressing sexual harassment and more. To inform national systemic change, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine released a series of consensus reports that tackled these key issues. We invite you to join the conversation on the intersection between the changes called for nationally and the initiatives in the UCI community and explore a roadmap for future action.
