In the Fall of 2007, recognizing the need to address a number of concerns in the experience of first year students, Chancellor Jacqueline Johnson convened a task force made up of faculty, staff and students to review existing First Year Experience programs and initiatives at the University of Minnesota, Morris (See Appendix A). The goal of this Disappearing Task Force (DTF) was to review current and historical data and practices at UMM as well as best first year practices at other institutions in order to provide information to the UMM community about how the first year experience could be improved. This group was to share their findings and recommendations with the Chancellor in a report due back to her by the end of January, 2008.
