I could not agree more.
Now that the tour has concluded, I have asked several members of our faculty and staff to build upon this important discovery work. To that end I have convened several work groups to move our agenda forward in the weeks and months ahead. You can learn more about these groups and their charges here.

Our community is enriched through your active engagement.

Charge: In July 2015, President Riordan launched a 100-Day Listening Tour to solicit input from students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni and members of the broader community. The Listening Tour Committee received and compiled the data from the live dialogue sessions, as well as the feedback obtained through an online form and via email, in order to identify trends, key themes and points of pride as well as to develop a foundational assessment for the Input Committee.
