In the fall of 2006, President Carol T.
Christ conducted a series of round tables for faculty and staff to address the
strategic directions identified by the Committee on Mission and Priorities. The conversations,
led by President Christ and senior staff, were designed to explore each direction
in greater detail, define the goals in pursuing it, and identify promising ideas
During the spring of 2006, President Carol
T. Christ held more than a dozen small-group conversations with students, faculty
and staff about positioning Smith most successfully for the future. Summaries and
