The LEAD and TED faculty met about the engagement model, renamed it to Liaison model and aligned those participating with Colleges and Schools to conform with faculty, staff and student mental model. They also called out other distinct areas of focus and identified people to be the primary points of contact. They identified back-ups for when they are out. Future actions include updating the web site and conducting both quantitative and qualitative assessment.
