The process is being guided by a small project team in collaboration with a larger steering committee. The steering committee is chaired by President Stokes and includes forward-thinking, generative thought leaders who are passionate about the future of UNM. With ample representation from the entire University, approximately half of the committee was identified through recommendations submitted by stakeholder groups who were asked to suggest participants for consideration. The other half of the committee was nominated by the project group.
The project group consists of Executive Vice President for Health Sciences and Chief Executive Officer of the UNM Health Systems Doug Ziedonis, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs James Holloway, Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Teresa Costantinidis, and UNM Foundation President and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Todd. The project group is supported by a consultant, The Napa Group, with experience facilitating planning in higher education.
