"Thank you Alceste. I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for your assistance with our strategic plan. It was an aggressive timeline and I believe we ended up with an outstanding plan. Your input was invaluable."
August 22, 2007 Quote from Charles B. Reed's speech regarding major issues facing Florida and the nation.
"To wrap up, I believe that Florida has the potential for and deserves a world-class system of higher education...
I'd like to call attention to these words from the recent Pappas report on Florida's universities: 'If the state's economy is to be further transformed from its historical emphasis on tourism and many low-wage jobs into a rich and diverse economy ... and takes advantage, through education, of its diverse population ... and connects that economic future to the intellectual capital that exists in its universities, then there will need to be a level of cooperation and stewardship never seen before in the state...'
With that thought in mind, I'm going to take the liberty of proposing that the Board of Governors have a conversation with Governor Crist; that we establish a commission to develop a master plan for the future of Florida's higher education system...
The challenge for such a master plan is to articulate a forward-looking vision, one that recognizes that education is an investment in the future..."

The Chancellor recently shared with the Board some of the new and exciting activities which you are undertaking this year. The Board is particularly pleased to learn that the transition from Housing to Residential Living really signals not only a name change but also a new era-one in which staff are committed to the cultivation of strong and positive living-learning environments at Western. Please know that the Board and I appreciate your efforts and wish you continued success."
