The cabinet is composed of the senior university administrators who report directly to the president. The group advises the president on matters related to institutional initiatives and operations; serves in support of the president’s agenda; collaborates on strategic thinking and planning for the university; and reviews and offers recommendations to the president on matters of broad institutional significance. They work closely together with the president, trustees, and academic leadership to provide advice, develop and implement university-wide initiatives, and oversee operation of the university. The cabinet meets regularly with the president and attends the Board of Trustees meetings.
