Ono sets out strategic vision in first leadership address
At his first Leadership Welcome on Thursday, U-M President Santa J. Ono shared details about the strategic vision that will define his first few years as president.
He outlined transformative initiatives ranging from efforts to amplify U-M’s research and scholarship activity to new opportunities for staff development; and from new sustainability developments to socially conscious investing.
Ono, who became U-M’s 15th president Oct. 14, spoke about his excitement to join the university community.
“The scope and scale of our research, scholarship and service to the world are a daily source of energy, inspiration and pride to me,” he said. “We are pushing the boundaries of residential and online learning through great reach and lifelong engagement that is the foundation of a blended future for higher education.”
