DART Consultative Council

The DART Consultative Council is a group of development and financial leaders from across the university that provides a forum for schools, colleges and units to have input into the priorities and policies being determined for the replacement system for university development.

They meet with DART project leadership monthly and provide input and feedback on changes to data processes and policies that will affect the entire community. The Council was helpful in more clearly articulating how we measure DART success.
