This Annual Progress Report is produced in direct response to the University’s Calls to Action, specifically Calls #33 and #34 (p. 38) which state:
“33 Short-Term Call to Action: All divisions should be required to report annually to the Provost on progress in implementing University commitments in relation to the calls to action contained in this report.
34 Longer-Term Call to Action: The implementation and monitoring body created by the President and Provost should conduct regular periodic reviews of the University and divisions’ progress in implementing the calls to action. The periodic reviews should occur every three years to ensure the University remains on track in implementation, and that the Committee’s and TRC’s recommendations are not forgotten over time.”
