What is the 10-step plan to lead UNF to a university ranked in the middle among the other universities?

Response from the Floor by Vice President Tom Serwatka:

The answer to this question depends on what is meant by the middle of the metrics. If one looks at each of the 10 metrics and UNF’s score on each of the metrics, UNF scores either above the middle or at the middle of each metric. What UNF has not done is received growth scores according to the metrics. For example, when looking at graduation rates and employment rates, we are at or above the center score. The place where we are below center is cost per degree. There is no need for UNF to be ashamed of our performance on the metrics. Please see the attached addendum submitted by Dr. Serwatka regarding the metric scores
