|Welcome to my Chancellor's Monthly Report, created specifically for University of Washington Bothell friends and supporters of the university. This Report highlights select UW Bothell events, news and information.|
A New Year
As we enter a new year, I am always fascinated by people's resolutions. What are yours?
In this edition of my Monthly Report,
I've decided to try something different. I've asked some of my campus
leadership to volunteer their New Year's resolutions. Below is just a
sampling; however, based on these responses I am sure you can see what
eager, fun and forward-thinking administrators we have.
The ResolutionsAs you
move into the new year, think of your connection to UW Bothell. What
resolution could you consider that can help grow our institution?
resolve to continue to work tirelessly on behalf of this institution;
to challenge my faculty and staff to look beyond what is to what could
be and what needs to be; and to support my students as they enjoy their
time on campus.
-Kenyon Chan, Chancellor
alignment with the seven priorities for the 21st Century Campus Initiative
and the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment, UW
Bothell Administration and Planning is committed to continue reducing our
campus carbon footprint. This year, we will continue our annual
wetland reforestation efforts by planting an additional 3,000 trees, continue
our demand reduction efforts with PSE's Energy Demand Response program, work with Johnson
Controls Inc., and complete a number of energy conservation projects which will
move us closer to our future goal of campus carbon neutrality.
Cox, Vice Chancellor for Administration and Planning
I resolve to create widespread opinion on the part of the
thinking, acting public that UW Bothell is a statewide leader for innovation in
Penny, Vice Chancellor for Advancement and External Relations
Information Technologies, we resolve to work collaboratively and strategically
with the campus community on the development of new initiatives so as UW
Bothell grows we can continue to provide the innovative technology services
that faculty, staff, and students need.

second year of operation by growing enrollment by at least 50%.
-Mike Stiber, Director, CSS Program
to take over the entire campus, subsuming all other degree programs as subunits
of IAS and enforcing a uniform standard of what counts as interdisciplinary
scholarship... just joking...I resolve to continue to build the best
interdisciplinary programs available to students in the region and to link
those programs to life-long learning for our current students, our alumni, and
our community partners.
