Description

Thomas J. Haas Address to Faculty and Staff, 2008. This video is in color with sound. Thomas J. Haas gives an address to faculty and staff on August 22, 2008 as a welcome back for the new academic year. Haas begins with a few stories about students and families who found Grand Valley to be a great choice. He then welcomes Board of Trustees members and a few other individuals in the audience. Haas discusses goals the Board of Trustees set the previous year, mentioning the highlights from these goals and achievements thus far. Haas then goes through strategic planning and goals for different themes, including leadership, fiscal responsibility, and community development. There is a lot of focus on the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools accreditation, the completed self-study, and next steps in the accreditation process and the university’s goals going forward. Haas then discusses a few changes looking forward, including the Board of Trustee’s new policy on household benefits, and adaptations for budget and tuition costs in order to be accessible to students despite the economic situation. Haas then takes questions from the audience on the campus smoking policy, success in becoming an environmentally friendly campus, and keeping graduates in the state of Michigan. He finishes up with talking about plans moving forward, including the new library.
