academic environment. Recent major renovation projects,
including a world-class research commons, have enhanced our spaces for
collaborative and dynamic teaching, learning, and research. An ambitious
talent management plan is bringing new skills and reframing long-held
strengths. Increased investment in a wide variety of
digital initiatives aims to revolutionize discovery and access to our vast and
distinctive resources. Our impact reaches beyond our campus
