Working Groups

Made up of campus community stakeholders, category-specific working groups are formed to develop Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for each partnership area, and to recommend prospective partnerships to the Advisory Committee. UPP brings together a unique group to explore each category, engage campus expertise, and to provide members of the campus community with the opportunity to provide feedback on prospective categories and partnerships. Stakeholders may include faculty, staff, students, campus units, alumni, and others.
