As part of The Next 150 strategic plan, the university is continuing the Operational Excellence at Illinois initiative by partnering with Huron Consulting Group to advance our administrative services in specific areas: (1) budget & procurement, (2) IT & data, (3) human resources and (4) physical space. Additionally, the decision to bring marketing and communications into the broader initiative was recently made, and the assessment approach will mirror that of the initial specific areas.
I will be sending this email message to all faculty and staff tomorrow. Thank you in advance for ensuring your teams and colleagues are aware of this information.
