A survey tool has been developed to collect feedback (see link below). Comments will be aggregated and shared with goal owners before the plan is completed later this year.

During August 2020, leadership hosted four input sessions to hear ideas from across the UC ANR network on ways to improve UC ANR for the future. We were thrilled at the engagement, over 600 people registered in total, some for more than one session. Summaries of the August input sessions' comments coming soon.
