UC Davis is continuously striving to better itself across a broad range of parameters, from student success and faculty recognition to sponsored research and private philanthropy. Our achievement with respect to these and other “quality metrics” is of interest to a wide range of constituencies, including prospective students, donors, and accrediting agencies.
This work group is charged to address the following questions, among others:
• How can we accelerate or initiate efforts that will improve the quality metrics we care most about?
• In which ranking factors, or metrics in general, do we see a need for improvement?
• What communication strategies may be employed to help our various constituencies better understand our excellence and achievements independent of rankings?
