The Tuesday Reading today is “What to do in your last 30 days,” an essay written by Helen Norris, 2007 ITLP alum, and until recently Associate CIO at California State University, Sacramento.  As of yesterday (June 2, 2014), Helen became CIO of Chapman University in Orange, California.  In a note to me, she said that when you get a new job, people send you articles and books about what to do in your first 30 days.  She goes on to say that no one gives you advice about your last 30 days, which are also important.

It is time to develop the individual skills you need to ensure success for you and your university.

Stanford University, the University of Iowa, and the University of Minnesota each described their approach to building these vitally important community environments.
