Conclusion
Conclusion dept data

  • (How the project impacted our University)

  • So Bill and Steve what have you noticed?

  • I have been down in the trenches and have not noticed much difference related to the ODT recommendations– what I have noticed did not come from the ODT even though we often get blamed for it. e.g. hiring freeze – that came from SLC, freeze on building—that came from our friendly neighborhood planning commission. Etc.
