    • OUTCOME A: Each research circle formulates a vision and action plan for Sept 2015-May 2016
    • OUTCOME B: Each research circle reports vision and preliminary action plan at _ (month?) faculty meeting to celebrate Year 1 successes and each faculty member’s next steps within this circle

  • INDIVIDUAL ACTION ITEM: Each faculty member updates their individual website to reflect most current work and their role in this collaborative SOE identity
