• dealing with rising costs,
• making undergraduate education central to the university's mission,
• exploring the role of the humanities,
• facilitating new discoveries and innovation,
• determining the place for professional schools,
• developing the research campuses of the future,
• assessing the role of sports,
• designing leadership and governance,
• and combating intellectual and legal threats to academic freedom.
