Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
I need to further explore the issues and hear the various voices of the campus community before beginning a dialogue on this matter with the Board of Trustees. Therefore, I have formed a President's Task Force that will be chaired by Barbara Wall, PhD, vice president for Mission and Ministry, and comprised of students, faculty, staff and administrators. In addition, the Office of Planning and Institutional Research will be distributing an electronic survey to all members of the Villanova community after Thanksgiving. The results will be shared with the Task Force and will provide valuable context as they work to formulate a recommendation on this important issue. I hope the Task Force will complete its work by end of the spring semester so that I may present my recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
Thank you for your input and continuing participation in the conversation about this important University issue.
The President's Task Force
