  3. Reviewing, revising, and streamlining subcommittees with one goal of providing non-OAC OAs with opportunities to participate

2013-2016 Medium Range Goals
  1. Continue to work with OA policy review committee

  3. Raise our profile across campus so more OAs are aware of the OAC as a resource and take advantage of the networking opportunities it provides
