In Short

Still waiting for the Planning Task Force report? Us too. Robin C. Elices of the Vice President for Finance’s office says the administration’s goal is to issue the report “before the term ends.”

The preliminary report, issued in August, ran to 74 pages and listed 200 ideas for the Institute to save money.

The final report was originally due in late October; the last day of classes is next Thursday, Dec. 10.
