The Planning Task Force

To launch the Collabortive Strategic Planning process, President McNamara selected two co-chairs of the Planning Task Force, Sean O'Connell and Steven Gstalder. The Planning Task Force (PTF), whose members are listed below, is a group of thirty-six faculty and administrators chosen by President McNamara and the two chairs, in collaboration with the members of the President's Administrative Council and following the guidance of Patrick Sanaghan.
