Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to update you about the Academic Organizational Structure 2020 Initiative.

The University of Iowa has transitioned to Phase 2 of the Academic Organizational Structure 2020 Initiative. This phase encourages campus-wide engagement and participation. You will have ample opportunity both online and through forums and other meetings to contribute your voice in shaping the university's future.

Details about the overall initiative and Phase 2 are found on our new website: The website also includes:

  • the report from Phase 1
  • the roster and charge to the Phase 2 steering committing
  • online opportunities for providing input and suggestions as well as for meeting requests
  • information (pending) regarding campus meetings

Phase 2 will continue through the end of the calendar year. The steering committee will submit their report to the Offices of the President and Provost early in the spring semester.

Thank you all for your continued support and willingness to engage in this process.  

Sue J. Curry, Ph.D.
Interim Executive Vice President and Provost
