Joint Initiatives and Oversight

Peter Gilbert and Bruce Jarrell are responsible for setting and executing institutional direction and priorities, and for overseeing the management and growth of the University. Jointly, they are involved in or have knowledge of (directly or peripherally) all initiatives that affect University operations and outcomes. Each has the authority to act on behalf of the president in a variety of matters and settings, and represent him (and the interests of the University) in activities for which he cannot be present and within their respective areas of control. Through and with the deans and vice presidents, they further the University’s core values among faculty, staff, and students in the leadership, management, and promotion of the institution’s education, research, clinical, and community engagement agendas.
