Dear Campus Community:

Today we launch SOU’s final retrenchment plan. This plan differs from the provisional retrenchment plan as it reflects a number of constructive ideas that came forward during the comment periods as well as discussions that have taken place on and off campus

The plan reflects difficult decisions and difficult choices. However, it provides a significant foundation as we refine our focus and address fiscal issues. The plan, also, will help to inform the larger campus-wide planning process that will be initiated this spring.

I ask again that we work together through implementation of this plan and that we remain positive in our service to SOU.

Thank you for your patience, your creativity, and your openness to change.

Best wishes,

Mary Cullinan, President
Southern Oregon University
